Gents,

Need to find a clueful amp technician in the London area, to service and re-bias a Fender Princeton and fix the problems with the reverb (probably also a valve replacement).

Any recommendations?

Thanks Platypus, that looks promising, we'll have a chat with them and see if they're happy to take it on.
