Juno 106 voice chip replacement
Our standard Juno 106 repair pricing is based on the number of voice chips that have gone down. We run all 106's through an overnight soak test to determine if any other chips are on the verge of failing.
One chip + controls cleaning and tuning: $220.
Each additional chip is a flat $100 for the parts and labour. For the full voice chip replacement (all six voices) this comes to $720. If there are other issues that push this out of the scope of our cleaning and tuning, we reach out with an update on costs.
For your noisy chorus
When no notes are played and the chorus is active, sometimes you'll hear that signature "shh shh" of a 106. This is great - until it's not. Most 106's are in spec, but if you're finding it's distracting from your sound, or has just become too much, the Xvive chorus chip remakes will give you a dead quiet chorus to work with in the recording studio or on stage.
We replace these chips as a pair and the cost is $140 for parts and labour.
Canadian-designed, true-to-original voice chips
We work with a local Canadian designer for our Juno 106 clones. We keep stock on hand so even if you have a show tomorrow, we can help. Here's how ours sound versus originals or other aftermarket clones.
Versus original chips
- The original chip doesn't actually have the same performance as the modern equivalents we've been using up until this point. In this way, being "true to vintage" spec actually lowers performance in a few spots.
- Specifically, the self-oscillation drops out on the original chips in the lower register whereas our modern based ones generally stay rock solid.
"More original feel" than other equivalent clones on the market
"Ours have a smoother, 'spongy' onset of resonance that is closer to the original in my opinion/preference. This is likely due to using fet buffers instead of opamp buffers in between filter stages."
