SPECHT VALVE AUDIO

AKRON OHIO

Since 2008 I have been providing comprehensive service for vacuum tube amplifiers and audio equipment in New Orleans and the surrounding region.  My clients include guitarists, bass players, studios, tour managers, as well as other instrumentalists and audiophiles. I take in vintage & modern equipment and I am equipped to provide basic repair services, full restorations, and modifications. Known symptoms are diagnosed and thorough inspection and testing are done to find unknown problems that often compromise performance, tone, and reliability.  My goal is that your equipment can be confidently taken on stage, into the studio, or on the road.
