The Most Hospitable Customer


Wow! Visiting a new customer today to pick up his gear & he was so welcoming & friendly I couldn’t refuse the juice, coffee, & cake that was offered. This was a customer I completely forgot to follow up on recently & yet he was still gracious. I felt a little guilty for the neglect.

The coffee from Amsterdam was exquisite, the slice of cake delicious with what seemed to be a kind of lemon curd icing, & for an hour we talked about the repairs to be done, his excitement over the Tablas to be delivered Friday, & how he looks forward to playing the keyboards once they are repaired.

They’ve been out of commission for a while & now there is more free time to get re-aquainted. He has friends from abroad that will be visiting in the near future & they are planning a concert.

The topics of discussion ended & he assisted me in loading the truck with gear. May be I was still dumb struck by the hospitality & great company for I had left my DMM behind. Thankfully he called & told me; he waited outside for me to get it. Ah, too funny…

On my way with a smile, that is one customer pick up I’ll always remember.

Showcase: Blues Jr. Mercury Magnetics Mod

This gallery contains 9 photos.

Back in April NDSMR had the pleasure of doing its first Mercury Magnetics Mod! A tweed Blues Jr. got power & output transformers replaced, choke installed, & custom Off-Standby-On capability in one switch replacing the original. Customer quite pleased & had NDSMR do another MM mod to a Peavey Classic 50 2×12 combo!

Enjoying Customer Feedback

NDSMR is so appreciative of customer feedback & allowing them to be shared. Its a great motivator! A recent collaborative effort between NDSMR & Main Street Music Studios LLC resulted in successful repair of a Digidesign Control 24 PSU. The customer did a stellar job of removal, shipping, & installation of the module!

“I actually had some (unexpected) time tonight to reinstall the supply and so far seems to be absolutely flawless! It hasn’t yet hiccuped and do random fader spits or meter bridge flickering at all. Wonderful job man. You Definetely know your stuff. I really appreciate you taking a stab at this. Turns out it’s working amazing.”

“Once again, thanks so much for your great customer service, communication and help along the way.”

Crate Vintage Club 30 Amp

A new customer gave NDSMR a USA made VC 30 for maintenance repair. I understand why some treasure & covet this amp. I’m no tube-phile, but this amp can sing!

Absent-minded by the tone, I neglected to get some pics. So I’m sharing from the web…
