Since I'm no longer part of Analog Sweden I'm offering my services for vintage synth repairs, if you had a repair done there over the past 20 months then you'll already know my work.

  1. Right on... I'll send you my TR-606 to fix... a company in Florida who mods them... well they couldn't quite fix it.

  2. cool, drop me a line on the email :)

  3. 606 has been shipped to you - can't wait to have it fixed :)

  4. where are you located 2cv?
    my regular repair man is acting funny so maybe I need a new one :)

  5. I am looking for a full set of replacement pots for my 303 any chance you know a spot i could look?...really dont want to pick them up of ebay any suggestions?

  6. touched by sound in germany has them, not cheap though

  7. hey, my Tb303 is playing cv notes to the sh101 but there is no sound from the unit (tb303). I have replaced the run/stop tactile switch years ago and did the same last year for a few buttons but I'm not sure about the volume/jack replacement.

    please advise


  8. hard to say James, it could be failed pots, you'd really need to crack it open and get an oscilloscope and probe starting and the output and workign your way back to see where it stops

  9. Hi DinSync,

    Do you also work on TR-707?


  10. I *had* a mint-condition 101 (and 202 and 606) which I bought new on new year's eve 1984, but it suffered from two bonehead accidents: I forgot to park the sliders at base before leaving it alone for a few years and a burst water pipe filled it with water.

    I'll pause while everyone gnashes their teeth.

    The water was no problem, believe it or not, but the slider stupidity has left me with a scratchy performance control just when I feel like picking up the old girl and noodling again. People have suggested switch cleaner might bring it around but I'm not sure how to go about applying it as the sliders have a "dust guard" built in. I guess this is a "take the case off" thing?

    I did the same bonehead "forget to park the controls" mistake with my also-mint portastudio too, and now have a scratchy pan pot for my trouble. This is what comes of moving out of a spacious flat into a small house to raise a family gets you.

  11. great blog, i really enjoy your page! i am from germany, have an mc-202, tr-606, tb-303 and an tr-909 in good shapes^^maybe i´ll give it a try with those new cv/gate jacks in my mc-202, to get connected with my tb-303 sequencer :D

  12. Hello,

    would you be willing to service a Novation XIO?

  13. A voiceless juno 106? would you be able to bring her back to life.

  14. Hi! Do you repair a KORG MS-20 Mini? and also, where are you located?

    1. no sorry, you need to talk to a korg service centre for that one

  15. I have a first Generation TR-909 that I want to have gone through. The Crash is having an issues (strange noises that take over) Caps may have not been replaced yet. There was a one or two unknown wire jumpers in there that I don't know what they are for, or if it is a correct repair. No history on the unit, but it is clean, and I would like to get it in tip top shape. How do we get in touch? I am in Sacramento.

    1. we are based in sweden so it may just be a little far
