SERVICES & REPAIRS

39 (!) years of experience in maintaining, SERVICING and CUSTOMIZING amplifiers for guitar, bass and vocals. The MAIN DIFFERENCE: when you're experiencing some kind of problem with an amplifier, usually it is for a 'normal' technician quite difficult to understand what the musician really means by 'more gain, a more solid distortion, serial or parallel effects, a more open sound , contour setting etc.' Musiccenter's Rik himself is a devoted musician and guitarist, passionated by everything in connection with guitar amplifying, as well as TUBES as TRANSISTORS are concerned! So to him you can talk your own 'musician's language'. All repairs are guaranteed and are usually done within 2 working days. So whatever you want to try out with your equipment, ask us for the possibilities!
We always have a selection of HIGH QUALITY TUBES on stock of e.g. JJ electronics, Svetlana, Sovtek, ... . these lamps have been extra tested BY ourselves and have been selected on e.g. microphonics, vacuum and stability, and become always matched IN YOUR amplifier! (ATTENTION: brands such as e.g. Groove Tubes, Ruby Tubes, TAD etc. are no manufacturers at all, those are just "brandnames" given by the selling company after some selection procedures being executed!)

 

SHOP

Back in 1982 Rik Michels started his MUSIC CENTER in Tielt, putting the slogan 'make a job of yourhobby' into reality. Eight years later we moved to the St Michielstraat 37. Over the years we have specialised on servicing and customizing, and on guitars, bass guitars and amplifiers. September 2014 we moved to the present new location, Felix D’Hoopstraat 195 in Tielt, where we stopped all “shop-activities” in order to devote ourselves completely on our servicing !
