Classic Valve Design

Open for business! Contact classicvalve (at) gmail (dot) com or call 604-425-2160 for appointment.
Due to pandemic supply issues with quality tube power and output transformers and now the war in Europe, we have not offered any new valve designs or builds since mid-2021. Hopefully this will eventually change. Solid state designs are possible. Enquire.
Current Repair Backlog:
8 Weeks

Thursday October 26th, 2023 we will be closed to do a power outage during construction in our area.

Update on our service terms and prices page. Mostly to do with DIY and Kit repairs. Effective February 1st, 2023:
- Warranty an additional 30 days to 90 days on replaced parts and relevant labour.
- DIY/Kit built equipment (includes Dynaco, Eico, Heathkit, etc. NOT incl. factory built versions) changed from $50/hr diagnostics to a flat $80 for the first piece, $60 for each additional piece on the same visit. This is a non-refundable deposit due up front. Many of these kits/DIY pieces that come in need reverse engineering to find out what the builder did and can take serious time! Commercial equipment deposit rates remain the same as before.
- Minimum charges for DIY/Kit built equipment changed to reflect above.
- For standard, commercial equipment estimates, deposits and rates: NO CHANGES! :-)
- Consultation fees now billed in CAD for Canadians, USD for everyone else. Exchange fees from a Canadian customer to our Canadian business account made billing Canadians in USD a losing proposition.

Back to work for us! Open Wednesday through Saturday from 1100h to 1700h Pacific time.

As restrictions ease and many live music gigs are returning, get your amplifier heads serviced through us! We have experience repairing and modifying many brands of guitar amplifiers, including Peavey, Marshall, Fender, HiWatt, VOX, Laney, Yorkville, Traynor and countless store-brands.

Due to punative fees, we have discontinued PayPal as a payment option.

Due to the war in Europe, Russian made tubes are getting real expensive with supply intermittent. If you need affected tubes (Sovtek, Electro-Harmonix, Tung-Sol, Mullard, Svetlana, Genalex - Gold Lion), please contact us for best options (which can change daily).

We are NO LONGER at our location in Chilliwack. Our service location will be in Rosedale, BC after April 1st. Contact classicvalve (at) gmail (dot) com for appointment.
