Studiocare’s Service Department caters for the professional audio market’s servicing needs. We service and repair most high end audio equipment from broadcast CD players, broadcast and studio mixing desks, live sound and DJ equipment, portable recorders, microphones, valve guitar amps and much more.
With a large stock of often difficult to obtain spare parts and components and access to all major manufacturers’ spares stocks, Studiocare is able to turn most jobs around within a short time scale.
With use of our detailed library of service manuals and circuit diagrams we are able to carry out many types of modifications e.g. creating fader start capabilities on broadcast desks and audio players.
Items for assessment and repair are subject to an inspection charge of £50 +VAT, which will be waived from any repair charge. Labour is charged at £50 + VAT per hour, with the majority of repairs being carried out between one and two hours. For more complicated jobs, we will advise an estimated turnaround and cost before any work is undertaken.
If you require an estimate before regular repairs are carried out, please advise us at the time. Repairs totalling less than £100 ex. VAT will be automatically carried out unless otherwise requested. All of our repairs carry a 3 month warranty covering the original fault and any related issue. This does however exclude speaker driver units.
Our in-house engineers are available for on-site repairs by advance booking, our call out fee is £50+vat and on-site labour is charged at £50 per hour.

Due to the support we have provided to our Hire Department over the last few years our service engineers have gained valuable experience in handling and repairing a vast amount of Technics and Pioneer Pro DJ equipment as well as many other high end products which are kept in our hire stock.

The Service department has a vast range of high end testing equipment to ensure a quality service is provided and all units are tested to meet manufacturer’s specifications. A recent acquisition to our department is a custom built valve testing unit, which means all your high end valve equipment can be tested, matched and tuned by us to get the most out of your equipment. Due to this we now welcome repairs to valve guitar amplifiers and obviously most types of valve compressors. In addition we now hold a range of high quality valves for various audio applications.
