    Hey guys,
    Anyone know of a good tech in Northern NJ? I've gotta bass here in need of a preamp repair and a full setup, and I'm hoping someone here can recommend someone that they've had good experiences with to help me out.

    Thanks guys.

    Well... I called Paul, but he told me it'd be a bit over his head. He suggested I contact the manufacturer (Noll) which I tried to do initially, but got no response.

    Any other ideas?

    Thx again guys.
     
  5. You could try Kenny's Music Box in Succasunna.

    Their number is 973-927-6711

    Kenny is the guy who designed the newer snarling dogs wah pedals, he has a lot of experience with electronics and tech work.

    Perhaps Phil Petillo and son David in Ocean ,NJ
    Or Dave's Sound in Whippany.

    Peace

    Rob Distefano, www.frettech.com. He's in park Ridge, awesome guy and knows his setups. He built my gecko bass for me, refretted an old p bass, and set up a ton of other stuff, plus did work for friends, and all have been very happy.

    Thx Mongo,
    I'll try them if Kenny can't do it.

    I think the biggest problem I'm having w/this is it's a Noll TCM-3P and no one wants to work on it since they're not very popular preamps here in the US. (Paul said he's never even seen one before but it sounds complicated... Basically said it wouldn't be cost effective for him because he wouldn't charge me a bench fee if he couldn't fix it)

    Thanks again guys for all your suggestions and help, I REALLY do appreciate it.

  12. ^ Although they're a great group of guys and its a fantastic shop, I'm not sure if they do repair work.
