    My Hartke Kickback has been crapping out lately and I need to bring it to be repaired. Does anyone know of a good shop that also does loaners or reasonable rentals. I have some rehearsals and gigs coming up and I don't have a lot of dough.

    I ended up going to Pro Tech in Wheaton, Md... a few doors down from Chuck Levin's. I couldn't afford to wait for their usual turnaround time (10 days or so) so I had to pay an extra 50 bucks for express service. It stung me 100 dollars including the express fee. They don't have loaner gear and rentals are cost prohibitive. My combo was ready a few hours after I dropped it off and it sounded great.

    Sorry I didn't see this earlier.

    A great alternative to PT is Action Music in Falls Church. The amp tech there is PHENOMENAL and has a pretty quick turnaround as well. www.actionmusic.com for the phone/addy in case you ever need it again.
