I keep a stock of spares for Zero88 equipment both current and legacy e.g. BetaPack 1, Sirius, Frog, Jester, Level (original & Plus) & Alcora/Elara. It’s also worth remembering that CCT & Eurolight also badged some Zero88 equipment so spares will fit their kit too.

I have a show soon – can you hire me equipment?
I don’t have the space to keep hire stock but I do have service spares that I can loan customers to keep them going whilst I repair their kit or to keep the show going.
I currently have
Betapack Mk 1’s with & without DMX
Demux 24’s (two in a flight case)
Alphapack Mk 1’s
Alcora Mk 2 12/24
Level 12 Plus
How many Zero88 spares do I keep?
I don’t have the space to keep one of everything, so I might need to order your part but i do try to keep a good stock of relcaimed parts. I can order spare parts direct from Zero88 so if you don’t have a local dealer, I can supply them to you – Zero88 won’t supply direct to end users. My experience identifying parts means I can take some of the pain out of buying spares. I also have equipment from Strand & Zero88 that I’m breaking for spares – you can see the current list here.
I’m working on an online shop so that you’ll see pictures of the above parts to compare with yours, keep checking back for updates.
Fed up of timewasters selling Zero88 on eBay?
A lot of folks sell old Zero88 stuff on eBay that they find in storage or clearances and their “test” is to turn it on and if LED’s light then they list it as working, sadly it can also mean it’s faulty. I’ve often heard of disputed sales because the buyer thought that a dimmer not working was a simple repair of the 13a plug.
Thinking of replacing your Zero88 kit?
I’m always looking for legacy Zero88 equipment to break for spares. Because I’ve seen (& repaired) a lot of Zero88 kit I can give you an honest appraisal of value for your kit and help you choose a replacement unit. You might not actually need to replace your kit – it may just need a simple repair, have a look here at a brief summary of what I can repair.
How much do you charge for Zero88 spare parts?
Where the spare parts are still available from Zero88, I’ll charge the recommended VAT inclusive price (if you’re a repairer but don’t have a Zero88 account then I can offer you a discount).
If the spare part you’re after is a reclaimed part, then I charge what I consider a fair price for the part based on my experience and the rarity of the part – however I do realise that they’re not gold plated so I try not to go crazy. Where they’re a replacement part e.g. a compatible PSU with connectors fitted to suit then I charge a commercial price based on cost of components and my labour.
Will you post items to me?
The answer is “No – I want to be sure that you get the stuff you’ve paid for and that it’s intact” so I send small parts (that will fit a letter box) by post but otherwise via Hermes or UPS. The cost of Hermes is about the same as Royal Mail and I’ve had a better experience with Hermes of items arriving “in time” and intact.
