I can recommend Steve Pappin at Clifton Audio Repair. He is familiar with many brands of vintage tube and solid-state gear and is an excellent technician. He now handles my McCormack Audio repair work and does a great job.

I have dealt with George Meyer and he is very expensive. He does a great job but be willing to shell out the cash. If you want someone just as good at a much better price contact Donny Manigold. He has been a technician for 30 years and he knows tube gear. He has done work on my tube amps for the past 20 years. I have never had a problem with him. (I wish I could say the same thing for my auto mechanic) He was recently at GNP in Pasadena but they closed down. He is currently working from his home. His is about the most honest technician you will ever meet. I have dealt with some other well known L.A technicians and they were total crooks. BTW- I am not referring to George Meyer. They are very honest, just expensive. Donny phone number is 1-626-833-7767. His hours are 10 to 6 Monday to Friday.
I wanted to follow up with the results of my 'quest.' Based on his reputation, I went with Steve McCormack's recommendation above. It helped that the shop was only an hour away. All I can say is thanks Steve, and thanks Steve. Steve Pappin repaired my MC240 and C22. Through the entire process it was a great pleasure to deal with him. He is thorough, honest, documents everything on paper and in photo, reasonable in prices, and knows what he is doing. I highly recommend him to anyone in the area who needs some repairs done - and he does SS as well. FWIW, my priority here was having the gear restored to optimal original operating condition. I have confidence now when I turn on my system that I am getting what I would have got 60 years ago, when they were new.
