Man, does that ever blow, especially with such a good (and internally
complex) instrument. Well, I'm guessing you know how to pack way better
than the seller, which you may have to do to get it to anyone good.

My recs:

Kevin Lightner, Los Angeles. ex-Roland tech from their JP-8 period.

Rogue Music, NYC. Some very unflattering digital ink has been spilled about
these guys' tech, but he did a fine job on my JP-8 a bunch of years ago.

Expert Audio Repair Service (EARS), NYC. Rehabbed an AHer's PPG Wave 2.2
some time back, JP-8 shouldn't be daunting for them.

DBM Technical Services, NYC. Haven't used them.

Davidson Electronics, Plainview, NY. Nice calibration/svc. on my (former)
Crumar Spirit, JP-8 should be a doddle.

Call 'em, get their labor rates, find out if they (still) do JP-8s.

Any other suggestions for folks closer to Kurt?

Best 'o luck on this, it's a beauty when in working order...
