Pro audio repair [ Empirical labs and Avalon ] in London/Kent?

Post by itsthenoise »

Please can someone recommend somewhere to get a Fatso and an Avalon VT737 repaired?

They've both been in storage for about 10 years and although they work are hissy AF, and some of buttons on the Fatso and displays don't seem to work any more.

Any ideas gratefully received.

Although I've not used them personally, Funky Junk is the first place that comes to mind.

Interesting biography - given his location, his grandad probably knew my uncle who helped me build my first radio.

Audio Related Technology in Chesham, Buckinghamshire.

Disclosure: I've known these guys for about 30 years or more. Before starting their current company, one of them was the maintenance engineer at a mastering/post-production/location recording facility at which I worked and I still use some bits of kit designed, built, and/or modified by him in the 1990s.
