Whatever your amp issue, Airtasker is here to help! Here are examples of amp repair services you can book on our platform. 

Fixing a blown amp 

A blown amp makes an unpleasant scratching or buzzing sound. Sometimes, a blown amp does not produce sound at all. On top of that, a blown amp could emit excessive heat, smoke, or a burning smell. All these symptoms may point to a damaged cord or blown internal fuse. To fix a blown amp, a mechanic may fit a new driver, replace parts, or re-wind the power transformer primary windings. A blown amp doesn’t have to disrupt your party preparations. While your amp is under repair, you can easily book a DJ to provide the music for your event.  

Replacing amp parts 

Your mechanic may have to replace amp parts in the case of worn valves, or changes in tone, punch, and clarity. You may also need a replacement if no sound is coming out of your amp. A specialist may replace various parts, from main transformers to a fuse in the plug. An audio expert knows which parts to replace and where to get them.  

Some specialists may be able to match your expensive Marshall stack or Mesa Boogie amp with genuine parts. Service inclusions vary from Tasker to Tasker. Once your amp is fixed, a guitar instructor may help you perfect your musical skills. 

Fixing crackly volume pots 

Any musician dreads the sound of crackly or noisy volume pots. This noise can cause a hiss or hum, signal break-up, and changes in amp tone. Moreover, crackly control pots can disrupt or stop other amp functions from working. To fix this problem, a mechanic would typically open up your unit and clean the pots. But some situations call for a replacement. A thorough clean may involve the use of canned air or a contact cleaner. 

Fixing dangerous amp faults 

An amp may have dangerous faults due to lack of care, poor manufacturing, or wear and tear. Amp faults can result in electric shock or fires, which is why you should schedule a repair as soon as you notice any issues with your amplifier. Vintage amps can be dangerous to operate, as these electronics may fall short of modern safety standards. 

Modern amps may also have safety issues due to incorrect fuses and underrated components. A mechanic can identify amp issues, such as exposed wiring, heat-damaged insulation, and insufficient airflow. Amp repair and maintenance services can ensure your amp is in good working condition.
