In addition to our line of handcrafted amplifiers, we offer other services to the discerning player. We've listed them below. Contact us if you have something in mind not listed on this page.
We service and repair most brands of vacuum tube amps. We offer filter cap replacement, bias adjustments for new tubes, replace blown components, cleaning and restorations, and resurrections on amps that have ceased to function. We've brought old amps back from the dead and have rebuilt amps from the chassis up. We can restore previously modded vintage amps back to their vintage specs, and recover ripped up Tolex cabinets and anything else to make your vintage amp "sing & shine" again.
Granger Amplification is a member of the Pro Audio Service Technician and Engineers Support Group.
We can modify existing amps to improve/change their tone and/or add more gain (or clean headroom if desired). We can add effects loops, channel switching, voltage scaling/VariWattage, and other functions. If you have an amp you would like to mod, we can probably do it. Please consider before asking to mod a vintage amp (unless its completely reversible). We discourage this due to liability issues and the way it affects resell value. If you really need a "hot-rodded amp" please consider leaving your vintage amp intact, and having the exact amp you want custom built by us (or by one of our many competitors). The collectors will thank you!

Custom Amp Building
We can build almost any type tube amp, so if you have a dream amp in mind, we can build it for you. We've crafted replicas of just about every vintage amp produced. Have a certain amp in mind, but it doesn't have all the features you want, or isn't available in a certain color? We can custom build your amp the way you want it. Contact us if you have questions or need a quote.
