Amploft is a amp repair workshop located in Redland, Bristol, UK specialising in valve, or tube guitar amplifiers, most types of transistor based instrument amps. I also stock most types of popular valve for last minute emergencies.

Amploft is a home based micro business opeating most evenings on an appointment only basis.


Centrally located and ideal for touring bands and local musicians. As I guitarist, well bassist really you can be confident that your equipment will be in good hands.

I have a good range of professional test equipment as well as a couple very useful bits of home brew that allow me to identify problems quickly.

All work carried out will use original manufacturers parts or superior alternatives.

Guitar Amp – Repairs, servicing and Modifications on all types of guitar and instrument amplifier. I am a recognised non-warranty repairer for Peavey and Marshall. I have good relationships with many other brands including Orange, Fender, Blackstar and Laney.

Effects pedal repairs are possible too but are limited to non-diagnostic faults e.g. damaged control pots, jacks, battery and power problems. This limitation is due to the lack of availability of technical info on many pedals or their parts.

Restoration of neglected or vintage amps. Safely bringing back vintage equipment into working use is one of my specialties. Examples like Vox AC30 and Fenders are documented on the site.

Valve Testing, matching and Grading. Bring your box of old valves for testing.

I can repair and service all valve Hi Fi and portable record players like dansette.
Sorry I cant help with repairs on domestic HiFi, car stereos or DAB radio or any other domestic appliances.
