While he had it on the bench, he also calibrated the filter settings on all voices.
I've had gear repaired at nearly every major shop in the tri-state area (dBm, EARS, etc.), and while I've had some good experiences, Sam was far and away the best. Friendly, well-informed, reasonable rates ($60 per hour)... everything you could ask for in a tech. And his shop is a fantasyland for synth obsessives like myself.
If you have a sec to do a good deed, add him to the GOOD TECHS sticky: Gear service shops / tech list
