Moogerfooger repair in London?

Post by [email protected] » Tue Oct 01, 2013 7:21 am

Hello People,
Does anyone know anyone in London that can have a look and hopefully fix my fooger? Sending them to Moog USA gets very expensive,.. I bought a low pass and ring mod used but in as new condition, they look mint , and while the ring mod is great, not noisy etc, the low pass is very hissy and the envelope seems to work only when it chooses to!
If anyone can have a look or knows somebody that might , please let me know!
Thanks,
Patrick

Do NOT use Cimple Solutions or The Synthesiser Service Centre (oddly enough at almost the same address).

I, and many others it seems if you do a Google, have had bad experience with them.

I had an OSCar repaired back in the day by The Synthesiser Service Centre. It cost £120 to repair, which I know doesn't sound a lot but consider that I paid £190 for the synth and you can adjust the numbers to today's relative figures. Also they had the synth for a long time and used some excuse about the repair guy getting an ear infection. Maybe he did, but if he'd looked at it within the time when I was promised it would be looked at, it would have been fixed before the alleged ear infection incident even happened.

Cimple Solutions had a Kurzweil PC88 of mine. Again took a long time to fix, then it worked for a further three months then died again. Again the cost repairing it started to outweigh its usefulness.

From what I see on the internet they haven't improved any since my incidents which were some time ago (and mine are quite tame compared to some I have read).
