Well, mixed feelings for me.
Got my Kung Fu Master...but the condition is badder than expected... Worst, the cabinet has been damaged somewhere 'in the process'.
This will give me unexpected 'extra wor'k on that cabinet, but also change its value, regarding the price I paid...
I'll post more details in the road trip to come.

@thorsten: that is really really REALLY bad. what makes me curious though is the fact that todd took pictures of the cab's interior for you and then afterwards he should have changed the pcb? wouldn't that be utmost stupid for him to do?

Todd replied and swore that he never does anything like this to cabs he doesn't own. I'm willing to believe him. André, and Ully, you're right with your point.

Here's another version: the bracket losened during transportation and COW replaced the PCB.

I will go after that...

Mo matter who did it, they have to send you the one that "worked", but still, shocked that people would do such a thing!!!!

Although I don't like Todd's cab-throwing, I think this is not like him at all....

I have had two dealings with him in the past. One went perfect. Excellent fast communications, realistic prices for both product and shipping.
The 2nd deal took very long to arrive here. So long that I mailed him about it that it was WAY longer than any normal air-shipment to me (talking about 4 weeks...)
After a day or two he mailed me that he had re-checked my shipping and it turned out that accidentally it was shipped _surface_ mail instead of by air. At the same time as sending that mail he also immediately had refunded me the difference in shipping price to my PayPal. It wasn't that large of an amount but I do think that does say something....oh and the package did arrive in the end, I had no real hurry with it so it was also no problem that way...

Shocked and amazed about the stupidity of doing something like that because it ALWAYS will come out in the open and backfire HUGELY on the one who did it....

Of course, and it must have been at TNT, COW or in Bremen. I cannot imagine the latter. The original seller shiopped the right thing, Todd's picture is the proof.

Stefan, I had never wasted any thought that you guys could have replaced the PCB Smiley


I will try to clean the "Two Tigers" PCBs and populate it with new eproms...maybe it can be turned into Journey....
