Hey guys, can anyone recommend a great Amp tech somewhere in the vicinity of Taupo (up to 2 hours travel). I have a Cornford Hellcat (handwired of course), and it's in need of a service, possibly a new set of output valves etc.
Many thanks for any recommendations.

I know of McPherson Stompboxes in Tauranga. (2 hours away I think??)
Waylon knows his shit.
But there must be something closer than that.

2 hours is a breeze when compared to going to Auckland or Wellington.
I think this is the guy I was told about several years ago . . . I'll look him up and have a chat.
Thanks for your help - hope I can reciprocate sometime.

John Gilmore in Hamilton. I miss our candid amp talks among the uproar of Tronfests gone by.

I think John Gilmore is retired now.

Spoke with Waylon in Tauranga today - what an excellent guy. Hoping to see him tomorrow or Monday next week. Seems very knowledgeable about tube amps.
