|Your Classic Car didn't fire right up after
sitting for 30 to 40 years, and neither will
your 8 track machine. And these days,
restoring an 8 track player or recorder to
peak condition requires much more than
a tinkerer, or even the veteran technician
at your local shop who fixes flat screens.
To guarantee your beloved's long term
health in her golden years, it takes THE
8 TRACK DOCTOR - a proud electronics
craftsman who knows where the trouble
is simply from the customer's description.
A scientific and artistic brain who boasts
five awards from Billboard for original
music and is a registered ASCAP music
writer and publisher, a caring professional
who knows how to "nurse" and coax your
baby back to robust health after traditional
repair methods get her "kinda close".
A professional Avionics Technician with
a four-year history of producing double
and triple the shop average in work output
with less than 1% in warranty returns -
and who has recently stepped down as a
technician to do more physical work and
devote more thought and research to the
increasing failure trends on specific models
of your prized 8 track machines.
In short, an eccentric, obsessive and
excessively talented individual who stands
behind his work BEFORE it comes back
to you - THE 8 TRACK DOCTOR !
|We do not stock "Band Aids" here!
I will not resort to silly tricks like putting a resistor on the motor
to correct the speed, suggesting the use of a matchbook to align the
cartridge properly, or cutting a spring to get a few more years out of it.
If I can only get it working "most of the time", it will be returned to you
in that condition at NO CHARGE except for return shipping costs.
While it's true that I have many trade secrets and alternate fixes due
to parts availability issues, I will only accept payment when I can give
you a PROPERLY FUNCTIONING MACHINE FOR LIFE.
|Full stock of medical supplies at all times
We continuously stock hundreds of belts for popular models, as
well as NOS Delco transistors, NOS motors from the 70's for almost
all 8 track machines (I have 40 years' worth of parts connections), and
possess many trade secrets and all needed medical journals.
Occasionally, however, I do have to transplant a spleen, heart or
make an artificial lung. Since I'm able to heal about 95% of all 8 track
patients that lie on the operating table, I have very few organ donors
at hand and some research is necessary - may increase turnaround.
If any extra charges will apply, approval is sought beforehand.
|We don't rush to make a quick dollar!
My emphasis is on one thing, and one thing only: RELIABILITY.
While I'm a very fast mover by day at work, I am an ARTIST in my
exam room while I perform work on my patients. The ER doctors are
the local repair techs who are under pressure to fix it fast, make the
shop money "or else". I'm the specialist your Honey sees when other
doctors didn't fix ALL ailments or don't have the parts, and I take the
time necessary to make sure she will be a great performer for years.
If you're planning to show off your baby at the next car show, please
schedule repairs at least 3 months in advance.
|We place all emphasis on reliability
My specialty is restoring your loved one's HEALTH
and LONGEVITY. I don't do cosmetic work of any kind,
and have no idea where you can find new faceplates,
knobs, paint codes, rechroming services, etc.
If you can manage to find them, I will install any
customer-supplied cosmetics at no extra charge.
My area of skill is in the mechanics and electronics.
|Ready to bring her in ?
Simply follow the easy
instructions below. Please
pay special attention to the
requirements for safe transit
and methods of packing.
We accept all credit cards
1. PLEASE tape your contact and shipping information to the bottom
of your unit. Please PRINT this information if possible.
2. Pack your unit with at least 3" of padding on all sides, top and bottom.
This is an absolute requirement - do not jam your unit into a flat rate
box to save on shipping cost - it will likely damage the controls. If your
unit must be repacked for guaranteed safe transit, an extra $20 will apply.
Protection of the front panel is especially important.
3. Double check to make sure you provided 3" of padding on all sides.
3. Send it to:
The 8 Track Doctor
4783 N. Glenrosa Circle
Prescott Valley, AZ 86314
4. When repairs are complete, I will contact you to request payment.
Please do not send payment with your unit.
