(foil, coating, adhesive, high voltage electronic parts), for
your DIY ESL repair trials.
! What we
cannot do and what we will never do !
We cannot , and
we will not, repair physically broken original hardware like eg. frames
or un-repairable PCBs. We have to order these items as spare parts from
the original manufacturer, if available. If not available, the speakers
will be declared by us as "beyond repair", in the sense of bringing
them back to original. The only thing remaining, will be to bring
the speakers back to work. Not more but nonetheless not less. And that
" not less" we stand for.. .. and it still is and will be our
successful work for fully bringing back to life your beloved treasures
We will never work and have
our fingers in any kind of broken special electronics, except EHTs, We
will give these things to the original manufacturer for repair or for
providing appropriate original spare parts/units.
Neither can we
give you any information by phone, by mail or any other way on how to
get repaired the speakers by yourself , especially
concerning the high voltage danger. Nevertheless, surfing our web sites
you will find technological background informations on how to repair
your electrostatic panels. For example some hints on using
coating, and how to stretch ESL diaphragms. But you really
should keep your finger off the HV power supply. 5kV to 10kV
is not that much a playground for DIYers in the very early years of
their life. Please be careful. Keep your hands off from that
stuff, if you are not really very well knowing what you are doing.
BANG.The speakers will be off the play forever and you
could be as well.
We cannot give
you any complete schematics, diagrams or manuals for DIY repair. Nor
can we and will we ever offer so called repair kits,. That
would be senseless, because we cannot send you our stretching jig.
Instead, please find and use our special Shackman-reromanus DIY ESL
parts and appropriate materials like foil or adhesive for your
own repair trials.
Please trust in the Shackman knowlegde, competence and
facilities on electrostastic loudspeaker matters
We will be proud to answer all your
questions immediately. You are welcome.
