He has emailed a counter-offer of £26 - so has knocked me a quid-fifty off.

Derek - hopefully it will do the job. I was also thinking if its worth while getting the Juno serviced overall. But none of these bloody electricians ever seem to bother to reply!

I'm of the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mould of servicing. ;)

I used to be horrified of people in work who had religious service regimes (that always seemed to require overtime working.... ) that involved taking mainframe computers to pieces, cleaning edge connector contacts, etc. Which causes no end of reliability issues as you eat into the maximum insertion/extraction life cycles of connectors. If an electronic device is together and working, leave it well alone!

That's not to say that vintage electronics does not need some TLC now and again, but don't go looking for problems. Just my opinion of course, but in all the years of ownership of the gear I have, i have only had a few broken keys (easily fixed) and a failed EX5 PSU. Occasionally some edge connector/ribbon connector contacts have required reseating, but that's about it

Derek - I will see how he synth plays/sounds when I get the CHORUS CHIP. As I say, I contacted THREE electricians last week and not one responded! Cheers.

Have you tried contacting a local music store to see if they know people who can do this job? I would think they have a whole bunch of contacts or can point you in the right direction at least.

Saul - There are no more local music stores! Over the past 10 x years they have all gradually closed down. The bare few that are left are totally rubbish! Cheers.

Plenty of them down here in the South. There is one just up the road from me, about 5 minutes walk and then there is GAK and Hobgoblin in Brighton, Bonners in Eastbourne, Union Music in Lewis then further afield 20-30 miles there is Guitar Guitar in Epsom and Andertons in Guidford...not forgetting PMT in Portsmouth. So no shortage here. What happened up north?

Saul - some of the bigger stores are open like PMT. But unless you are buying something from them, they are unhelpful - which is why I won't use them. cheers.

Might be an idea to start putting together some sort of contacts database based on area and expertise a bit like another board I used to frequent when I had my Peugeot 2008 there was a garage/mechanics/dealer list by area with user comments. If I get some time I might do a bit of digging and see what I can come up with.

I can't remember if you said you had NI Kontakt, Paul? but if you did, then this is great for £20 . .

Very nice bit of software that Chris and for just £20 too!

By the way if anyone is ever wondering why these things time out in KONTAKT PLAYER it's to do with the way NI licensing works and is the reason why the full version of KONTAKT..with which this won't time out is so expensive. Vendors can either pay a license fee to Native Instruments so that their products will work as full non time limited versions in the "free" KONTAKT PLAYER" or choose not to pay that license fee in which case their software will only work in demo mode.

Having said that, the "demo mode" does last about 10 minutes before the sound cuts out and you can then just reload it again. Apart from that their are no other limitations that I am aware of so it may be worth spending £20 on the Hollow Sun 'YouKnow 6' and downloading the free KONTAKT PLAYER?
