I need to get my SVP-Pro checked out. Can anyone reccomend a good person/place to me?
Call Jimmy at N.Y. Guitar and Bass Boutique on 9th. He is a great guy and probably can steer you in the right direction.
have a car? try www.sommatone.com
jimmy works on all my amps, and does a terrific guitar amp of his own. give him a call.
Jeff Bloch's Guitar and Amp Wellness Center in Brooklyn. These cats are older than Fender and definitely know what they're doing
I should consider Jeff... last time I went they were so rude to me that I swore I'd never go back. It is close to me, though, so maybe I should give them another try.
Unfortunately, I cannot recommend him and the "
Amp & Guitar Wellness Center" though it's in my neighborhood.
I had brought my amp in and tried to tell him (Jeff) what was wrong, but he stopped me and said he didn't want to hear it, they would figure it out.
well, after picking it up and bringing it back because it wasn't fixed, not once but twice, It still isn't fixed.
They kind of suck
Jeff Bloch is a lowlife. He has no respect for anyone, and I will never bring anything to him again. Had 2 expereinces with him. Both bad. Once with a Peavey amp, and once with P bass. He was the only authorized Fender person around so I had to take my bass to him. He wouldn't fix it even though it clearly had problems. Said he didn't want to take the chance of messing it up more and then have me blame him.
Anyhow, I bring all my gear to Maggio Music on 85th and 18th. Nino Valenti used to work there and will also I'm sure give you the thumbs up. His prices are excellent, he's a good guy, and he does excellent work. If you call, ask for Mike Jr. 718-259-4468. Tell him Joe Nerve sent ya. And he'll probably charge you more. Nah... we know each other since we're 7.
Harry Kolbe Soundsmith, 27 west 20th Street in Manhattan.
I haven't had very good luck with Jeff either. I second Harry Kolbe.
You could also go to 30th Street Guitars. They do nice, careful work.
Rock City - Jimmy closed that shop and moved to california about two or three years ago. It was nice while it lasted.
Rogue music in the Music bldg on 30th?
I've been looking for a great amp tech also and think I will be taking some work to Matt Wells at 49 Crosby Street soon. Anybody here have any experience with him?
I just had my Fender Geddy Lee Jazz bass set up by Patrick Nelson, he is also located Park Slope/Windsor Terrace area and he did a great job. The neck had to be straightened quite a bit but now action at bridge and nut a sweet. I would highly recommend Patrick, his prices are very reasonable and he's simply a great guy to deal with (no condesention here).
