I can recommend Cimple Solutions of Park Royal in your actual north-west London. Fool that I am, I bought a Roland XP-50 about eight years ago and played lots of gigs with it until I switched it on one day and the outputs had stopped working....

I dropped it over to CS (which is just off the A40 near Hangar Lane) and they sorted it within a week. I carried on using that particular piece of kit for a few more years until it developed the infamous blank screen/no sound issue which afflicts many XP-50s. I decided to let it go and bought another one...

That one worked like a Trojan until halfway through a gig a couple of weeks ago; major outputs issue but everything else worked well enough. CS took it in and fixed it within four days; the outputs prob being indicative of corrosion caused by leaking capacitors.

CS's specialist attention doesn't come cheap but they do a decent job.

There is Jim @ Singingcatservices up in Scotland, just outside Glasgow, comes highly recommended. He used to be an ex-moog service tech, has serviced gear for Chris Franke of Tangerine Dream at one time (his large moog modular). Owns one of Edgar's original Oberheim TVS. He knows his stuff.

Anyone know if James Walker of Synth Repair Services is still in business? I have a JD800, ASQ10 and JP8000 in need of attention

Nothing on the website to suggest otherwise. Have you tried contacting him...? (I haven't generally found synth techs to be the most communicative people I've met...)
