Sweet Amps are now open for guitar/bass amplifier and effects pedal repair

We are offering our repair service in partnership with JPF Amplification of Denmark St.

All terms and conditions, prices, QA, etc, are identical across both locations.  Some of the key differences between the two locations are that the Sweet Amps shop is at London Fields, outside the congestion charge zone, on the ground floor.  It also has a parking space and load in behind the shop, which is available on request.

However, as with the Denmark St location, you are strongly advised to call ahead if you intend to drop something off.

Quoting from the JPF web site, the highlights of the JPF repair service are:

Amp Repairs

We specialise in repairing vintage and classic valve guitar amps (that’s tube amps to our US customers) including Fender, Marshall, Vox, Ampeg, Friedman, Magnatone, Morgan, Toneking, Hiwatt, Gibson, Supro, Selmer, Orange, Laney, Matamp, Watkins, Wem, Traynor et cetera, but work on all types of valve amplifiers including modern valve amps such as MESA Boogie and Peavey.

Work undertaken includes: general amp repairs, servicing, preventative maintenance, recaps, re-valving, biasing, modifications (e.g. Blackface conversion for Fender Silverface amps), de-modification, restoration of vintage amps, portable appliance testing (PAT),  US/UK voltage conversion. 

Our labour charge is £80/hr labour for amp repairs + parts.

There is a minimum charge of £80, which is one hour’s labour, after which we charge by the half-hour (£40 / half-hour).

Guitar Effects Pedal Repairs

We also can repair a wide variety of guitar and bass effects pedals by major brands, including BOSS, MXR, EH, Fulltone, and Colorsound, as well as “boutique” brands such as Lovetone, JAM, Love Pedal, Crowther, Lateral Sounds, Friedman, Wampler, Keeley, and RMC. We’ve also got extensive experience of working on vintage pedals, such as Fuzz Face and Colorsound.

Note that we tend to work mainly on analogue pedals, so if you have a problem with your loop station or digital multi-effects we probably can’t help you.

We charge a fixed price for pedal repairs, which is from £28 + parts, but we will let you know before we undertake a repair. For example to repair a 70’s EH Memory Man, we may charge more.  We will let you know the labour charge before we undertake any pedal repairs.

More Information

We operate a “no fix no fee” policy, so if we can’t fix your amp/pedal there is no charge.

Please to go to the JPF Amplification web site for all the terms & condition of our repair service.
