I friend inherited his Dad's McIntosh 225. It still works but I suggested he might want to get it re-capped because of it's age. Any suggestions on who he could get to perform this service? Thanks.
Mike Samra or Terry Dewick are gonna do you right
Mike Samra,who posts here frequently,rebuilt my McIntosh Mc240 & my Mc275.He understands the circuit designs and has years of experience working on tube amps.He knows which type of cap.or resistor is best for a particular section of the circuit as well as how to beef up the power supply to take the amp.to a new level.The work that he did for me exceeded my expectations by a large margin.
Mike certainly does excellent work as attested to by multiple asylum members. He would be the best bet in that Terry is not accepting more work until March.
Shipping is expensive and sometimes very hard on equipment. It is best if you can take it to someone in your area. If you can track down a local audiophile group they would be the best source of a tech in your area. A well established guitar shop would also have an experienced tube guy or tech. Also, you might try checking craigs list to see if someone does repairs in your area. good luck
Mike's your man. He really loves this stuff and more important - he's good at it and knows what he's doing.
he rebuilt my Sherwood and holy cow - is it nice!
EASY! Mike Samra is the man. After Mikey goes over the amp, it will be better than new. Modern parts are a big help.
Contact Pat at Classic Tube Audio. He will take good care of you.
