Procedure

After the instrument arrives in our workshop, we test the instrument and check it thoroughly. We contact you with an indication of the costs. Depending on your budget and preferences we perform the suggested repairs and maintenance. If we come across unexpected problems that will increase the costs of the repair, we will contact you and discuss how to proceed.

Turnaround Times

Most repairs will be carried out within 3 to 4 weeks if parts are in stock or quickly available. Instruments whit many problems and restorations take more time especially if parts or documentation have to be ordered abroad.

Shop rate

The hourly rate is €59,92 excluding VAT, €72,50 including VAT. Time is billed in 15-minute increments.

Shipping

Although we prefer personal contact with our clients and that instruments are delivered personally, it is also possible to ship them to Artefacts.

Artefacts

Started in 2004 in a small room in 's-Hertogenbosch. After a couple of months, we moved to a business park in 's-Hertogenbosch. In the first two years we mostly designed and built electronics for museums, theater companies, artists and musicians. In the years after that we specialized more and more in the repair and restauration of vintage synthesizers, drum machines and out board gear. Since 2013 we are located in a former shoe store in Sint-Michielsgestel.

Maarten Halmans

Owner and technician, started making electronic music in the early 90's. Soon he developed a great passion for analog synthesizers and drum machines. To be able to design and build his own synthesizers he studied electronic engineering at the HTS and earned a bachelor's degree in electronic engineering. Since 2014 he regularly performed with Optical Machines, an audio-visual performance, in the Netherlands and abroad. Meanwhile over 25 years of experience with the repair of vintage instruments.
