hey to all
i stumbled upon this sight while trying to find someone who is best qualified to overhaul/repair & tune up my MM 112-65 (it's practically a cherry). i would like to get it back to spec as much as possible as it has given me years of trouble free playing and i am too used to the tone to like anything else (well... under $1000 anyway).
i hope someone can help or point me in the right direction. this is a cool sight but i am not interested in doing the work myself.
have a blessed holiday
Hi Alex If you Email me I can repair your amp.
in the mail, thanks
i called and talked to terry today... i will be shipping the chassis to him soon. i am really looking fwd to getting this done and 20 more fine years out of this amp!
got the amp back from terry on 1/10/03.
everything is right again (thumping good and clean). great service at a more than fair price... thanks terry
man this thing sounds better every day now that i am playing it again... it must have been sick for a long time and i just didn't realize it.
i really like the Svetlana EL34 tubes with the GE 12ax7 in the pre section. i had been using Sovtechs all the way until now.
thanks again for the repair and the advice!
here it is june 2004... and the amp has been working without fail and stronger than ever.
MM... still the best amp out there in my opinion!
and terry is the MM repair man !
ok almost 2 years of regular play and the tubes finally went south... amp getting real noisy.
i popped in a new matched set of Electro-Harmonix EL34s and re-set the bias to 0.5 dcV and i'm good to go!

I really appreciate your continued diary about your experiences with your amp! This is the kind of real-world experience that is hard to come by on many subjects, especially Music Man amplifiers.
What did Terry do to your amp when you sent it to him? You certainly got a quick turn-around on the repair!

sorry i never responded steve - but here it is 2010 and the amp is still kicking hard! i'm not real sure all that terry did when he had it? i think he replaced some caps or other minor components - all new tubes and set the bias. i have replaced the tubes in it a few times myself and now know how to set the bias thanks the instructions terry sent me - it really is pretty easy. MM rocks!

Alex-I just noticed that I screwed up your real name-sorry. I've gone in and corrected it. Mike.
