This shop has changed hands, the original owner was not a friendly person. The new owner is from Russia and English is his second language, so sometimes people think he is a little dry, but he is a good guy unless you act like a jerk, then

I consider musicians in roughly two categories, regardless of professional or amateur; the cheap guys and the guys that want real quality and service. If you want cheap, go to the Guitar Center. Otherwise, the Amp Shop is your place.

DO NOT TAKE YOUR GEAR TO GET REPAIRED HERE!

Each time I got back my Fender Twin Reverb it sounded worse and worse. The owner told me that the crackling and the high-pitched squeal it was making after their "repairs" was how classic amps are supposed to sound. He then yelled at me in front of a shop full of customers accusing me of lying that my amp didn't sound like that before I brought it in. I took my amp to another tech who told me that they didn't do the repairs I had asked for (replace the filter caps).

THE AMP SHOP = THE CROOK SHOP

THEY TOOK ME FOR A LOT OF MONEY!

Tina - is known as the Goddess of guitar repair in pro circles. They brought her to Nashville to give repair seminars (I know - they did it through me when they found out I knew her). Nobody does woodwork and frets like Tina. The amp repair guy does good work too. Gary the owner is a character but he knows his stuff and the staff is the best. They actually play so you're talking to musicians, not salesmen. Good gear ain't cheap and Amp Shop handles the high end stuff. If you want transistor amps and cheapo stomp boxes go to Guitar Center. I'm a pro player who has been at it since guitars were steam powered, I record in Nashville, and play with guys that played on lots of your favorite records. Don't pay any attention to reviews by kids who don't sign their names and play in their bedrooms.

Pros: Great repairs - guitars and amps - high end music stuff

Cons: not for kids and amateurs!

.

They are extremely rude, totally incompetent, and very very very expensive.

They will say anything to get your money, and then do nothing to back it up. Sure, they talk a good game, but watch what happens after they have your money. You will regret doing business at the AMP SHOP in Van Nuys. Go anywhere else but here.

Pros: There are no PROS! NONE!! Horrific service! No parking! High high prices!
Cons: I have not one positive thing to say! Cons: Yes, they appear to be!!

PLEASE READ THIS!!!

If you are thinking about going to this place to buy something or repair your amp, then . . .

PLEASE THINK AGAIN!!!

The guy that manages the place is like a combination of Hitler, and Charles Manson. I'm not trying to be humorous!

And you have to park a mile away to even get to the place.

I have never in my life seen a more horribly run business. Avoid this place like the plague! You won't get a good deal, and you won't get good service. This is my personal opinion.

There are several other places in LA to get the same product much cheaper, and get repairs done for less, with a faster turnover. This place is the pits, and if you go there after reading this, then I suspect that you'll be writing a review just like this, soon after!!

BE FOREWARNED!!!!!
