The Black Volt Amplification Company
Here at Black Volt we are dedicated to achieving the best performance and best sounding results out of every piece of gear that we work on. Quite simply, we are driven by great tone and doing whatever necessary to get it. Each and every piece of vintage gear is unique, and there are many variables that create the mystical magic we all strive for in our tone. There is no singular path to what is best. We enjoy working with our clients to take each piece of gear as far as they like. Our Standard Practice is to work directly from the original factory schematics to insure that our work is on par with the original equipment manufactures specifications to avoid future malfunction or confusion. We offer both traditional repair services and custom One-to-One premium service for the special situations where you want to be present and contribute to the final outcome. Further, while most customers are seeking amp repair services we also apply our same high standards to your pedals and special audio Fx gear.
