Can anyone recommend a tube amp repair specialist in the Seattle region?
I have a Gomez G-Reverb combo that has been acting up and my local tech (Port Townsend) is stumped.
If not in the Seattle area, is there someone you'd recommend working with via mailing in the chassis?
Thanks for any pointers!

I don’t know one, but ask this at OSG and for sure they’ll have a few. Several members live there.

Touch base with Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar, and they’ll be able to point you in the right direction.

I highly recommend John Fromel at Fromel Electronics. He installed his Fromel Mod into my Fender "Custom" Vibrolux Reverb that fixed the serious production flaws (hiss, hum, diminished reverb from a perfectly good US-made Accutronics tank).
My "Custom" Vibrolux Reverb amp is now everything that it should have been when Fender released it. Fantastic 40 watt amp with 2x10 Jensen P10R speakers.
I'm not local - I shipped my amp chassis to him from Maryland and then he shipped it back when finished (I covered shipping, of course). The whole experience was excellent.
Here's his contact info:
