Services - repair and modification of synths and analog studio gear
- Service Manuals: This is a link to Rob Senso's website. He offers a huge collection of exceptional scans of service manuals for all kinds of electronical musical devices. You can download them without restriction, but I ask you to be fair and donate a little money as he asks you on top of his page. If you did so already, the you may scroll down on his page.
I removed all service manuals from my page with exception of those, which are not available at synfo or which I scanned in better resolution.
