I’m also an independent Zero88 Repair centre recognised by Zero88 as an expert in repair & service of their legacy products – which may well be the staple of many of your readers.

I don’t do sales of equipment (except spare parts) so I don’t have an agenda to follow for a brand – all I offer is what I’ve been known for over the last 19 years at CTS and my last 40 years in little theatre – good solid advice given with no or very little budget in mind.
