Service & Repair
In an effort to offer complete customer care Sphere Recording Consoles offers various technical services through our Technical Services department, including console repair, restoration, custom wiring, custom installation, and outboard gear repair.
Our technicians travel all across the US and internationally for custom installations. We’re the experts in studio installation and console commissioning. We offer complete restoration of vintage consoles including a true craftsman who can re-build any wooden frame and restore it to original beauty. (Or add a new twist!)
Vintage consoles require a considerable amount of special care to maintain their sonic quality. Often these consoles have operated for many years on their original components. As these components wear over a time there is a significant loss of sound quality and an eventual loss of functionality. A thorough and professional replacement of all these components can provide the original sound quality that made these old consoles so special. Aside from sounding great, a fully reconditioned console ensures dependability for the future.
The weakest points in a vintage recording console are the old Capacitors that have been running hot for any number of years. One of the most noticeable symptoms of worn or leaky caps is a thin sounding signal, lacking the punch and dynamic range that a healthy circuit portrays. The replacement of these Capacitors is one of the most beneficial upgrades for any vintage desk. As capacitors begin to wear, there is a very noticeable decrease in low frequency response. As time goes on, more and more frequencies roll off until finally the caps finally fail.
