Should I go to Tiffen or are there other options here in Los Angeles? Maybe someone who could show me what to do for maintenance while they check it out. It definitely needs some work, and I'm very much not qualified.

In LA ... don't know, but Brant Fagan (who is on the forum) used to do 3A Gimbal service. He did my old 3A gimbal a number of years ago, and did a great job making it like new. Not sure if he is still doing this or not but worth a shot.

Best,

Rich Davis

Rich-- Thanks for the kind words of support! Yes, I still handle CP gimbal repairs and service. Feel free to contact me either through the Forum or by direct email at brant -at- brantsfagan -dot- com.

Brant will make a 3a gimbal better than new. Seriously. Best option out there (short of buying an XCS/PRO gimbal).

Thanks everyone! I started corresponding with Brant off the board. I honestly don't mind using my Glidecam for a little bit longer anyways.
