Brett’s specialties include the repair and restoration of high-end and vintage electronics including speaker re-coning, turntable and tube amp repair. He owns a full-range of test equipment, a service manual library and an extensive parts department which he actively uses on a daily basis.
Brett Mullins falls into that category – it seems that he was born with a drive and talent to bring good electronics back to life.
Brett has been repairing and restoring since the tender age of 9 when, to his mother’s chagrin, he “trash-picked” his first television set. It wasn’t long before that poor television was disassembled into countless pieces all over the rec room carpet. But to his parents’ amazement, it was just a few days before Brett had fully reassembled all those pieces back into place and had himself a working TV.
At age 12, Brett got his first job as an after-school helper at the local TV repair shop. At 17 he was co-teaching the high school electronics class (they had run out of courses advanced enough for him to take). When he turned 19, he became service manager for a successful chain of stereo shops in the DC area, and by 25 he had opened a large repair shop which he owned and operated for over 25 years.
Now, Brett is fulfilling his dream of running a quieter, more low-key business that focuses on higher end products. He also is enjoying hunting down the coolest, the finest, and the funkiest of vintage and antique electronics to repair, restore and offer for sale to you.
He locates these pieces from anywhere and everywhere you can think of: antique stores, private individuals, auctions, thrift shops, flea markets. And yes, even the occasional “trash-pick”.
