Or you could just use the best of the best.
Martin Newall (905)472-6394 He does all the hard stuff for Capsule music and used to be a Peavey factory tech.He is the KING of Marshall amps too.
When I have a problem I can't find,I call him and he often figures it out over the phone.He's a logical thinker and his rates are great.He's in Markham.

I am a good tech,but he is head and shoulders above me.

vouch for amplifiers +

Who knows who the best amp tech is.
I can only vouch for amplifiers plus, run out of Sherwood Music in Kitchener. They (he) tuned up (re-tubed and biased) my Hiwatt DR 103, and it sounds really great - just like it should.

He was polite and fast, and no matter where I am living in SW Ontario, I will use him.

Being from the Maritimes I obviously don't have the credentials to answer this question however it reminds me of the best vintage amp guy that I ever knew in Ontario. The late Doug Brash at Vintage Soundworks. A fine gentleman.

+1 on John Fletcher. I dropped my super at the Art's in newmarket and he blackfaced it, serviced and it is an amazing difference. Couldn't be happier

has anyone contacted MARTIN NEWALL recently?

i've been trying to contact him via email and phone, but neither could yield a reply...

alternatively, can anyone recommend other tube amp techs in markham? i'm trying to avoid long & mcquade as their average turn-around time is usually, what, at least 2 weeks?

i just need the tubes and the speaker replaced, but want someone who could do it right (i would probably screw up the job myself)
