Vintage De Armond Acoustic Pickups

These are really cool pickups!

Nice. Thanks for breathing some life back into these Gems. Originally purchased both new by my dad, the white magnetic back in 1959 and the other in the mid 60's.

He purchased the white magnetic in 1959 along with this 'Reyes' Bajo Quinto acoustic. Both brand new in that year from a music store in Corpus Christi, TX. He gigged heavily as a professional musician with this g Acpustic until 1987 when he started using a Macias hand made Bajo Quinto made in San Antonio, Tx.

Heres a pic of my father with his beloved Macias 10 string acoustic. RIP dad.

Yup. They dont make em like these anymore. My dad wouldn't gig with anything else.

Effects Pedal Repair

Desert Amplifier Repair also offers service, restoration and modifications for most vintage and new production effects pedals.

Bias Mods

Changing the stock fixed bias, found in many amplifiers, to an adjustable fixed bias has several potential benefits.
