About Boffin Island
Boffin Island was established in 1995 as the service department of internationally renowned professional audio suppliers, Funky Junk.
From the outset, the company employed some of the audio industry’s most experienced and gifted technicians, instructed to go above and beyond the usual repair facility to ensure that our client’s equipment was overhauled and refurbished ready to go straight into the most demanding professional session. It is hardly surprising, therefore, that the Boffins quickly established a reputation amongst Funky’s clients and has become the leading third party repair shop in Europe for all analogue recording equipment.
A list of clients who rely upon our engineers to maintain their precious equipment in prime condition would be exhaustive, but it’s probable that many if not most of the records gracing your turntable, CD player or iPod have been made using equipment repaired, serviced or customised by Boffin Island
With such rigorous standards, it’s hardly surprising that past employees now hold key positions in companies such as Calrec, SSL, Fairlight and many more. After all, the company is widely regarded as offering the most thorough and demanding training regime in the industry. Our standards are dictated by your standards, and our customers include many of the leading professional engineers, studios, producers and musicians worldwide.
Whether it’s a custom cable or patchbay design and installation, recapping and aligning a vintage Fairchild or Urei 1176, refurbishing a precious tube Neumann or AKG microphone or merely bringing a pile of outboard back to life, Boffin Island have not merely years of skilled experience and state-of-the-art test equipment, but a unique collection of rare, impossible to find spare parts.
We are also the official service centre for Manley, Tube Tech, GML & Royer
And all this for less than the hourly rate of an apprentice plumber…
Boffin Island… fanatical about audio.
