This fellow, John, used to be set up at Kenmore Square back in the mid 90's, but now he's out in Southborough - not too far away. Very knowledgeable fellow - did work on a TR-909 and SH-101 for me back then. Had a few good synth-geek conversations with him about the good old days - the man certainly knows his stuff - especially ARP.

The below link, posted in '06 says his hourly rate is $50.

Last I spoke with John, he was selling his synths parts and getting out of repairs to focus on photography.

If you want to make a trip north to NH, I can take a look at it for you. Even if I can't fix it, it'll be cool to have another synth geek to talk to.
