The Kitsch Welcomes Chris “Tubefreak” Balagna!

Electric Kitsch is proud to welcome Chris “Tubefreak” Balagna as amplifier technician extraordinaire! Chris has been working on audio gear for 20+ years, from modding vintage tube amps, to building custom pedals. If you can dream it, he can build it, or mod it :)
Everything will be done in house at The Kitsch. If you have a funky turntable, or your vintage Twin just isn’t sounding like it used to, bring it on in, and Chris will take care of it for you!

Rates are based on hourly charges, $30/hr. There is a bench fee of $25, because sometimes it really does take an hour to diagnose an issues. However, Chris can usually figure out the problem within minutes, so you have nothing to fear.

Please call with any questions!

Now Offering Amplifier Repair!

Hey everyone,

Electric Kitsch now offers amplifier/electronics repair as well as swift guitar repair. I’d like to welcome Josh Johnson to the Kitsch team and introduce to you his amazing skills as an exceptional repair technician! He’s been fixing things since he was a youngster, and especially loves vintage tube gear, as do we all! He can repair, mod, fix, nearly anything you throw at him! He is thorough, and of the “old school” body and mind that things should be fixed correctly, and fixed correctly the first time. And remember, preventative maintenance is a must for electronics, just like your car! Don’t let problems carry on, get your stuff checked out!!

Thanks and regards,

Jordan Pries & Josh Johnson

Grand Opening Party

My dear friends,

We had a few hiccups with the city, and did not receive our license to re-sell used items. However, we are still going to have our “Grand Opening Party”, we just can’t sell any used items. I can work on your instruments, sell you cables and strings, but I can’t sell you records. Bummer, I know! 

Please come out this Friday, June 22nd @ 6:30 and have a good time. Andrew Neal will be playing @ 7:30 and then later in the night Bell Buskin & Kraffte will take us on home!

Saturday night features Chirs Tanner of Vince Dynamic @ 7:30!

It’s going to be a blast, we promise! We will be fully operational as soon as we can. Thanks for understanding and thank you for you support!

Hello friends,

I just updated the “Repair”, and “What We Carry” sections of the website. You can find all the goodies in stock at Electric Kitsch, from strings and cables, to stereos and clothes! The repair section is completely detailed (maybe too much) down to the last mega pixel, or whatever that means. But if you do have any questions, email us at
