L’Artigiano del Suono (The Sound Craftsman) was born from the need to create a reference point for the repair of italians tube amplifiers that, with the closure of the old laboratories, found themselves not knowing who to rely on for advice, intervention or modification .
Thanks to twenty years of experience in repairing televisions, video recorders, Hi-Fi of all kinds and collaborating with lots rehearsal rooms and private listening rooms, I am able to bring to light even the most desperate cases (eg amplifiers forgotten in damp cellars for 30 years). The great passion for thermionic valves began as a young man when, fed up with the usual commercial transistor devices, I decided to test the sonic characteristics of circuits based on this apparently outdated technology. I found, in a flea market, a part of an old radio containing a 6L6 of the FIVRE with which I built a small class A 6W amplifier coupled to one of the self-made speakers gave me a new listening pleasure combined with the thrilling thrill of having built a working object.
From that moment I realized that it was necessary to deepen my knowledge in the sector and transform thoughts into devices.
