Musicians know that one of life's greatest pleasures is to plug in and turn on an amplifier: The hum as it warms up, a familiar sound promising future tones and harmonics served up loud. Knowing that she has a willing slave, the glowing red beacon of an LED bulb beckons the musician on. But she's a cruel mistress, that power-driven siren of rock — especially when nothing comes out of the speaker, the light goes off, smoke rises from the machine, and everyone in the venue is staring. A pain matched only by the frustration of knowing that the amp had already been "fixed" three times before, by some wanker who supposedly offered a good deal. Alpha Kinetix was created by Gary Philips in 1979 and has since grown out of its home in a cubbyhole at Ridenour to take over a bay on Dixie Highway (just north of Cypress Creek). Philips wields his massive knowledge of tube amplifiers, speaker cabinets, solid-state technology, advanced electronic circuitry, and history of power-driven music like a finely honed surgeon's scalpel. He fixes anything and everything that lets musicians make their music louder, and he does it expertly. More to the point, the stuff Philips fixes stays that way. He is at home with everything from superexpensive vintage Blackface Fenders to ultramodern boutique hybrids and doesn't turn his nose up at run-of-the-mill, workhorse solid-state circuitry. Don't expect the cheapest prices; do expect expert craftsmanship with incredible attention to detail and a severe lack of bullshit.

Wow...

I have heard it from others, but now on two separate occasions this guy GARY comes off like he knows what he is doing, but has over charged me severely on two repairs. Not only that both pieces came out of his shop no where near repaired. One piece went back 2x before it went off to a real Mesa Boogie tech who fixed it in 1 hour. The second piece was so screwed up that I refused to take it back to the pompous jackass for fear he would screw it up even more. NO refunds are the extent of his customer satisfaction policy as well for not fixing things like he said he would and doubling the average repair bill quotes when you finally go get your stuff that�s not fixed correctly.

DO NOT GO GARY AT ALPHA KENITIX AT ALL unless you want to see an ex drug crazed hippie bullshit you into the middle of next week with how much he THINKS he knows...

Which is not much BTW...!!!???
