VINTAGE ELECTRONICS - REPAIR & RESTORATION
Here at Retro Workshop we believe in repair and restoration of old electronic equipment to make it suitable for use once again in the modern world.
We specialize in the repair and restoration of vintage valve (tube) equipment such as Radios, Valve Amplifiers, Guitar Amplifiers and the like, but we also repair and restore non valve equipment manufactured prior to 1985.
This type of older electronics equipment was never designed with obsolescence in mind, instead it was built with the ability to repair it should it go faulty. Most of what we repair and restore is typically 50-70 years old - I wonder if your iPhone or flat screen Television will be around and working in 60 years' time!
Get in touch if you need a repair or restoration, or a friendly chat about what to do with that old radio you found in the loft, or the old valve guitar amp that has sat gathering dust for years, we are here to help!
REPAIR & RESTORE
REPAIRS & VALVE TESTING
We have access to a wide range of original service manuals, test equipment and spares, including new old stock valves and components to allow us to repair your equipment and maintain its originality. We make sure equipment is safe to use during repair and will advise on items that need to be replaced on safety grounds. We also test valves, if you require this service please call us to discuss.
RESTORATION & DESIGN
We are passionate about the restoration of old equipment but not just the electronics. We work with a cabinet maker for instances where the the case or cabinet needs restoring to its former glory.
We also work on modern all valve equipment such as HiFi and Guitar amplifiers.
ITEMS WE DON'T REPAIR
We don't repair the following:
Televisions, CD Players, Cassette Players, Toys, Domestic Appliances (e.g Cookers, Lamps, Fans etc.), Power Tools, Game Machines of any kind, Jukeboxes (except the amplifiers), all in one HiFi Stacking Systems, anything made before 1930 or after 1985 (there are exceptions to these dates for certain items so get in contact), any modern equipment that doesn't use valves!
RESTORATION, REPAIR & RE-USE IS RECYCLING AT ITS BEST!
