Sound Advice


Post-Script: I'm thus far gainfully employed, but it nonetheless represents an interesting opportunity. There are now many such niche markets that seem to be, or are being, resurrected from the near-dead, such as typewriter repair shops. It requires, however, a prudent business person to make it work, who understands where and how best to exploit those niche opportunities and keep costs under control. There's also the consideration that a retail space is not necessarily required, especially if one partners with a storefront business such as a music store, which shares a common clientele.

Sounds like you could open an audio repair typewriter shop. I find the problem with repairing any decent audio gear is getting parts. Good quality discreet components and many semiconductors are getting hard to come by. I love tube gear, but finding good filter capacitors and audio coupling capacitors as well as good pots is like finding hens teeth.

Still think a shop could be a viable business though.

Sounds like a nice niche business that could be setup at the back of a vinyl record-store-cum-typewriter shop. Provided you could afford the rent. :)
