Chris is a university qualified Electrical Engineer who proudly uses the newest and oldest technologies to solve your amplifier issues. He is just as proud of his 1960 valve tester as he is of his digital storage oscilloscope.

The Guitar Amp Tech holds stock of the latest reissue valves and a selection of NOS (new old stock) and used American and British valves from their heyday of the Fifties and Sixties.
