    Pedal/Amp Labor Repair Rate

    So I have been doing odd jobs for guys around town repairing pedals and amps for a while now, and it is starting to get to the point where people are bringing me stuff and I need to start charging. What sort of labor rates are people getting for this sort of work? There aren't really any places in town where people do this sort of thing, so I can't shop.

    here in Vancouver we have the renowned Mr.Ho that is the "go to" place to get your amps and what not repaired.

    He charges around $60/hour (cdn) for labor and then potentially more for parts depending on what went wrong.

    There is also a few electronics places that specialize in hifi stereo amps and that kind of thing but also work on pedals/guitar/bass amps etc. They charge a $60 fee for the assessment that is non-refundable, but if you let them do the repair they count the initial assessment fee against the total cost.

    Yeah, the guy we used to work at charged like $65/hr, but he'd cut deals if something was super easy to deal with (visually obvious to diagnose and had the parts on hand etc), or if he just didn't mind that particular repair job, or if he liked someone or felt they needed a hand up in troubled times.

    The guy I went to in Toledo had immense trust around town, and he charged $65/hr

    Sounds like I need to be less than that to start out with.
