Pricing

Every system we build is a custom configuration uniquely reflecting each client’s playing style, ergonomics, signal flow & transportation logistics. We invoice every system build on a “Time & Materials” basis.

Our shop labour rate is $75 per hour, commensurate with many other Music Instrument & Amplifier Repair shops in the Greater Toronto Area.

Our materials are price matched to large volume online retailers of electronic components. We only use premium grade materials by manufacturers such as Mogami & Canare Cable, SwitchCraft, Neutrik & CalRad Connectors, Carling Switches, Hammond Enclosures & Transformers.

We sell MIDI Controllers, Audio Switchers, Amp Controllers, Expression Pedals, Line Mixers, Power Supplies and many other “Infrastructure” items for Rack & Pedalboard Systems. We can also acquire any effects or amps you may need to complete your system build, although we are not a music instrument retail store.

Every system has some common elements, the prices for which are listed below in Canadian Dollars & are for general comparative value, not intended to reflect an actual system build estimate.
