One off's or special cables can be made for jobs when the required item is not available anywhere else.Computers are not repaired. Some sheet metalwork or mechanical work undertaken.
The facility is aimed at professional audio and video equipment used by establishments who find it difficult to get equipment repaired, and is often left in a cupboard restricting school/college, or business activities losing time or revenue. Replacement is an expensive option and often unecessary. Video tapes can be copied to different formats. E.g. betacam to DV

Equipment repairs dealt with are backed up by fully qualified engineer /owner with a state of the art fully equipped workshop. A library of workshop manuals for most equipment enables diagnosis and repair of faults to component level. General spares are kept, but spares for cameras etc are ordered as needed.

Range of equipment includes camcorders, multimedia projectors, mixer desks, radio mics, Coombers. Videssence studio lighting, Manfrotto and Vinten tripods also repaired. In fact almost anything is tackled, spares and technical infirmation being available. Vintage equipment repaired as well e.g. Revox B77 or Pr99 reel to reel.

Hello Arthur

I might have a few of those studio lights for you to do soon. Just waiting to hear what the budgets going to be for this year.

Hope you're well

Just an endorsement for Arthur. I used his service about 18 months ago. The process was straightforward, fast, and cost effective. I will happily use him again when faulty equiptment is not covered under warranty.

Arthur fitted a new head assembly and serviced my Sony FX-1 at a very reasonable cost when Sony wanted £450 with no guarantee that this would cover the cost of the repair. Arthur did it quickly with no fuss and provided a professional service. I'd recommend him.
