Vintage Sounds electronic repairs are based on a base rate of $40.00/hour plus the cost of parts needed. Phonograph and telephone repairs are generally charged by a list of fixed fees based on our experience. An estimate may be requested prior to performing any repair that might cost more than $100.00. The cost for a repair estimate is $37.89 ($35 plus tax 8.25%). This fee is credited toward the cost of the repair if the repair estimate is accepted. For items requiring complex disassembly and/or reassembly by our staff a fee will be added. For large floor standing items a handling or storage fee may be assessed. All such fees will be explained to the customer at the time the repair is submitted to us. If the repair estimate is refused, the customer pays the $37.89 plus applicable disassembly/assembly and/or storage fees. Upon submitting a repair, the customer will receive a receipt. Repairs take various lengths of time depending on backlog, parts availability and complexity. Customers are required to pick up and pay for repairs within 30 days of completion.

Vintage Sounds maintains an
inventory of thousands of "new old stock" vacuum tubes for
radios, communications and scientific equipment and amplifiers.
If a tube you need is not in stock (unlikely!), we can probably
obtain it. We use new old stock tubes in all of our repairs
where tube replacement is necessary.
Looking for parts
Our parts are not the
showiest items in the store but they are essential for
collectors and hobbyists who like to do their own restorations
or build an amplifier from a circuit diagram. We have many
thousands of new-old stock tubes, new capacitors, resistors,
transformers and other circuit elements plus hard to find dials,
pointers, knobs and other parts for vintage radios. We stock
parts for wind-up phonographs, electric turntables, table, and
wall telephones too. Where do we keep all these parts? Out of
the way of our customers if we can! Many parts are kept off
site but can be delivered to the shop on short notice.
