Garrard Service & Repair

Service Options:

Full Refurbishment

We can bring back to new irrespective of the condition and we can paint any chassis any colour. Also included in the price is a new box and free delivery UK.

Mechanical service only

For those wishing to keep their paintwork original we offer a mechanical service only. The service is exactly the same as the Full Refurbishment service except the paintwork is kept original.

Only when a Garrard 301 or 401 has been serviced properly will it sound as good as it was designed to be.

We strip and examine all parts and replace where necessary.

There are many critical areas that effect the sound and all these areas need correct rectification before the 301 or 401 gives its best.

I installed your platter and bearing in one of my 301’s.  They sound great.  I listen primarily to classical music, and the sound of your platter is greatly appreciated.
