Anybody Know Who Does V72 Work?

Good day Gentlemen, ,,deda,, here with a question on V72's. The main question is does anybody know anyone who works on them?


1. Is there a tune up out there for these V72's to get them to spec?
2. Does anybody know of anyone that does this in the States?


Thanks in advance for any help on this issue, regards ,,deda,,

Andy at anologdomain.com in AZ does great work. He has done a pair for me along with some Ampex 350's and some Neumann W495 modules. He is very good.

Thanks for the lead but there's a statement on the vintage gear page that states they are not taking any new business. This sucks because he is the bees knees on these modules. It's weird no one in Geekslutz knows anyone that will work on them. If they can do it in Europe they can damn sure do it here and it would be a sole source niche, I work on V72's and it costs a little more. Hell there all over America in studios, who works on theirs?

I guess I'll have to keep looking stateside and pursue George's guy in Europe, they would go on a trip for months but when back home they will be able to tell their story, mercy I love V72's.

Oliver is the only person I'd hire for that sort of work.

Gruff? Nah. Anytime I've chatted with him, he's been a hell of a nice guy.

Waiting list is probably long, but the end result would be more than worth it.

****. Didn't see that on his page.

That'd be too bad.

If I were you, I'd give him a call anyway. Can't hurt to try.

Oliver is too busy for repair work

I absolutely love Oliver Archut, and he has done great work for me repairing my Telefunken V376 mic pres and he built me a really cool rack/side car full of Filtek MK3 eq modules that I got from ZDF. But he is just WAY too busy to recommend for any kind of new repair work. I have been waiting at least 5 years now for him to finish working on a pair of Telefunken U373a compressors that I sent him before he moved to Kansas and they are still not done. If you go to his website and you look at the photos of his impressive facility, a converted school in Gaylord, Kansas (with all the vintage transformer making equipment) one thing you will NOT see in any of the photos is ANYONE else working there because I don't think there is anyone else working there except Oliver. Again, I love and respect him, but don't send him any more work until he finishes my U373a modules! I dream about putting those to good use some day before I die.

I will check out Andy at analogdomain.com and I would love any suggestions about other people in the U.S. who can work on vintage German broadcast modules. I have a ton of broken ones (V376, Siemens U273b, Telefunken W695, W696, Filtek MK 3 and Mk5 modules) that need repair and I would love to know how I can get that done.

He’s in San Fran area, but I’ll throw out there that Oliver Archut told me that if he was ever unavailable to tech them, that James Gangwer is very good. (He mentioned another name too, that I’m just not recalling at the moment.)

James Gangwer Homepage

I can think of a couple other qualified guys, but no one closer that has this as a specific area of expertise.

Thanks! Please do list other techs (regardless of area). This topic hasn’t been discussed in a while.

John Monforte in South Florida (my first recourse because of location), and Eddie Cilletti in Minnesota, can be used with confidence. Both highly skilled and down to earth.
