No more synth repair in 2020

Yes, it’s been a shit year, and we have to stop taking on synth repairs until we see were we are in December, financially and locationwise. Hopefully we can keep the ship floating, but if anyone know how to arrange a community driven synth repair shop with space for more than one man at the desk, feel free to tell us.

Covid-19, 2nd wave measures

Seeing Oslo going back into red alert, we’re forced to take some precautions.

  • Use the disinfectant in the hallway before you enter the staircase
  • Stay outside the workshop while we collect or hand out your item
  • Pickup and delivery is restricted to Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 10:00 – 15:00. Pro and BTB customers 10:00 – 16:00 Monday – Friday.

If you have any symptoms even remotely associated with this plague, please wait until they subside fully before you come by. Also note that repair takes longer these days, as all our suppliers suffers from the situation. Thank you.

Thunder season is here

Keeping your studio plugged in and powered on at all times? Now’s that time of the year when you really shouldn’t. Power off and disconnect whatever you love from the mains. Invest in power conditioners and surge protection.

Really need to work while Big Mother shows its discontent with humanity? A quick and cheap fix is the Brennenstuhl Überspannungsschutzadapter. We’re not saying this to be nice, its just to prevent the annual rush of dead MOTU, RME and Lynx cards which seems a truly unnecessary tradition. (And no, we still do not service anything AVID.)

Opening hours autumn 2020

Starting August 10th, we’ll be opening for delivery and pickup during work days 10:00 – 15:00.

Customers will have to keep their distance and wait by the office door. All visitors must use the hand disinfectant station in the hallway.

Please limit phone calls and messages to 10:00 – 16:00. E-mail is answered during work days only. As a rule, we do not respond to requests by social media.

Summer holidays 2020

We’ll be closed for summer vacation June 30th – August 6th.

If you need to use your gear during this time, make sure you come by and pick it up quickly.

Caution – Covid’s all around us

Since all local schools and kindergardens were closed down to slow the spread of Covid-19, we were forced to keep our doors shut as well.

We were locked from 16.03.20 to 21.04.20. This has caused delays in repairs and orders. We will get up to speed as fast as we can, but ask for patience and apologize for the inconvenience.

We are now open for business as much as time and safety measures allows. Customer access to the repair shop is limited. There is unfortunately no access to the studio yet.

April 1st – Pausing vintage synth repairs

Effective from April 1st, the new rules for MVA on imported goods means we can no longer buy single parts for vintage instrument repairs without an extra handling fee that skyrockets the costs involved. This will push the price on parts up several hundred percent.

While it might not be the final nail in the coffin for our synth repair services, we’ve set all vintage synth repair on hiatus until economy allows us to continue. We apologize in advance.

Friends and pro costumers might still inquire for repairs, but restorations are beyond current capacity.

No vintage organs

Yes, they’re often cheap and sound magnificient. However, we hardly ever recoupe our money when restoring an Ace, Philicora or what have you, meaning we absolutely do not service organs at this time, all apologies. Come by for anything else.. or I mean, other rare, complicated and expensive stuff.. Cheers.
