Looking for help to repair my Class 5 which the T,M,B Eq section just doesn't do anything

And also my Ac30CCH which was used by some A-Hole in a hard core metal band without my knowledge and it "just stopped working and had smoke coming out of it"... while waiting for our next practice at the band leaders studio we are permananetly setup in. The drummer took his metal band there for a practice session. Yes im still bitter :evil:

I suspect it is the transformer as it appears to get no power after checking both fuses.

Suggestions for a knowledgable North Shore or semi central based amp repair person?

I used to use and like Ryan but believe he has moved on....

Clarry's probably not the man for a Class 5. Older the better for him.

Cheers :)

Thanks for the replies guys. Was hoping for a bit closer but all good. :thumbup:


There was a guy whom I went to in Bayview/Glenfield some years ago, Keith Prictor / KP Electronics, who serviced my old Rivera. Great chap to deal with but I see he passed away a couple of years ago after a quick google. :thumbdown:

Euphemism...?

Clarry is in Titirangi which is pretty much North Shore West. :)
Call him. His english is fluent.

Thank you anyway :)


No worries. Keith actually lived about 2km from me which was super convenient and was really good to deal with, he was fond of my Rivera because of the build quality and had a superbly quick turnaround time. He also fixed my bandmates Laney AOR100 (great JCM800 clones) and was always happy to have a yarn about gear. Just a great bloke, sad to hear he's no longer with us.
