Amplifier & Electronics Repair

If you’ve got an amplifier, speaker, keyboard or other electronic item that needs to be fixed, JAMS Music can service them. We work with a professional electronic repair company with years of experience of getting your equipment back to working order. A deposit of $25 is collected to cover the estimate. If you choose to have the work done, that deposit is applied to the total repair costs. As a MESA/Boogie dealer, you can drop off your equipment and it will be brought to the MESA/Boogie factory in Petaluma, CA for repair in a timely manner.  Average time for Amplifier & Electronic repair is 3 – 6 weeks.
