Hi ! , my name is Larry Smetana. I am the owner of AccuTech Audio and I personally do all of the  

service work at my shop. I started this business in 1991 out of a passion for sound and music along with a desire to serve musicians and sound professionals.

I have been involved in audio electronics for most of my life. In the 70,s and 80's I was a technicianengineer for a company called Loft that made custom recording consoles, processing, and effectsequipment for the pro audio business. Some Loft effects processors were used by Rush, Heart, ZZ Top, Aerosmith,  and a few other great groups.   

Understanding sound and what effects sound quality has always been a subject of intense study for me.

I started by building speaker systems and amplifiers (both tube and solid-state) many years ago for Hi-Fi and pro audio use.

During that time, I learned what the ear was sensitive to and the cause and effect relationships between circuit design, component parameters and the resulting level of sound quality.

This knowledge is applied to the work I do today in upgrading, restoring and servicing amplifiers and other pro-audio gear. 

Since I began my own business I have had the pleasure and honor of serving many talented musicians and professionals.

Some of my clients have been:                                                 

  • Foreigner                                                     

  • Burt Teague

  • Jim Chapdelaine                                          

  • Erin Danner

  • B.B King                                                      

  • Jeff Pitchell

  • Dave Stoltz                                                  

  • Tim McDonald

  • Jay Jesse Johnson

  • Numerous collectors of vintage guitar and other vintage sound equipment.

  • The Fixx                                                                  

  • and many others

  • Charter Oak Acoustics            

  • Shaboo Productions

  • Central Connecticut State Univ.

Just to clarify, some of the more famous musicians and groups, I don't actually know them personally, but

I have serviced their amps and other equipment though tour managers and other personnel associated with

them..
