As of Jan 1, 2022 - RetroLinear is no longer conducting repair services due to the lack of parts, increasing parts costs and difficulty manufacturing replacement components in the current global political climate.
If supply chains resolve to a "normal" state we may revisit accepting repairs, for now we're focused on manufacturing quality replacement parts, and new product development.
We are extending our repair service expertise where possible for existing clients while completing all repair jobs currently inhouse.
CAN YOU FIX MY __________ ??
If we can obtain schematics & parts for your equipment, we can fix it!.
Without a schematic, limited repairs are possible- however more complex issues may not be resolvable economically.. Some vintage instruments require parts which may no longer be in production.
We specialize in the restoration and repair of
Instruments: Rhodes, Wurlitzer, Hammond, Leslie, Clavinet, analog synthesizers
Amplifiers: Fender, Marshall, Ampeg, Gallien-Krueger...
Floor effects pedals and rack units: Neve, MXR, Mutron, Electro-Harmonix, Boss, Lovetone, DOD, Vox, etc.
Newer equipment tends to present its own set of problems which are not always solvable within a reasonable cost.. Many modern devices, instruments are not designed to last for decades in the same fashio as equipment from the 50s or 80s was.
With new models coming out every few years, planned obsolescence is a reality in modern instrument and device manufacturing. The way these new instruments are built, with very specific custom or proprietary parts, makes them intrinsically more difficult to service. Some manufacturers will support their older products; others will not. We will do our best to help you with your specific situation. RetroLinear is currently an authorized repair center for Hammond, Leslie, Gallien-Krueger, Korg, Yamaha, Roland,
