Repair Shops

Repair shops for your vintage audio

Many people don’t have local options for getting their vintage audio gear repaired, or modified. This means you need to ship your pride and joy to another state, across country, or to another country. This page has repair shops known to have a good reputation and are committed to doing quality work. This includes tonearm rewires, cartridge rebuilding, and stylus retipping.
