I live in Berlin/Germany and need some service for my brick. I bought the unit used from a musician in the UK. The VU meter doesn`t indicate any gain reduction if the device is switched to the comp 1 mode.
Do you have any idea who could do the service?

Hello Frank, the short answer is, I would not trust anyone with service on a ‘brick’! They are quite delicate and difficult to strip and re-assemble. The most sensible way is to send it to me at ‘The Sound House’. I have an arrangement where I repair/service any equipment of my original design for a fixed fee of £25 plus the cost of returning it to you.
It sounds like there is a fault with the ‘comp 1’ setting. If you would like me to fix it, pack the unit well and send it to me.
The address is:
The Sound House
Torquay TQ1 1QB
And make sure that you note that it is equipment sent for servicing and quote the IPR number IP/0929/089/11 this will avoid problems with VAT and duty.
Once I have the unit I will fix it and ask you to transfer £25 plus the cost of postage back…. all by paypal.
BTW, this goes for any and all old Joemeek equipment as well as Alice mixers and early TFPRO equipment.November 28, 2009 at 1:38 pm #15440vladiParticipant
Hi. Ted, I bought a second hand VC1 2.02, and when I plugged it to AC power, it burnts out. It was switched to 230v, but maybe the wires of the voltage selector were crossed, because it comes from the USA. I don’t know what happened but the fuse blows up and the power supply is burnt out. This is possible to repair if I send to the Sound House? Changing the AC transformer will change the sound? Thanks in advanceNovember 28, 2009 at 3:12 pm #15441Ted FletcherKeymaster
Hi Frank, I can service any of those older JoeMeek units… I charge a fixed fee of £25 plus the cost of returning the unit.
If the power transformer is blown I will replace it….. no, it won’t change the sound!
