The Uncle Spot shop does repairs/restorations on musical vacuum tube amps from 1934 to the the mid 1970s. URL: www.unclespot.com
This includes not only guitar amps, but Hammond organs and Leslie speaker systems.
…since this *IS* a ‘restoration’ shop there’s also a full speaker reconing/re-foam/repair section.
We not only do guitar, bass and organ reconing/repair, but stereo, Hi-Fi, and radio speakers as well...
We also do cabinet covering as well: Tolex, Tweed, and grill cloth replacement.
We also do back panel reproduction (mainly for Fenders from the mid 1950’s to the mid 1970’s)
The Uncle Spot shop has a full stock of most of the current production power, preamp, and rectifier tubes currently available: 6L6, EL34, 6550, KT66, KT88, EL84, 12AX7, 12AT7, 12AU7, GZ34, 5U4, 5Y3, 6CA4 - tubes from JJ, Sovtek, Svetlana (Flying -C-), Ruby Tubes, EI, TAD.
We sell speakers (WeberVST is *THE* speakers in *ALL* the custom Uncle Spot Amps so far), and hardware as well.
