    i'm late to the party but i was going to say it should have a sturdy reuseable shipping crate,so it will always be packed up safe.and can't be torn open like a cardboard box.in transit.and a big warwick rocks to the boss man.

    Hay greg, if this baby hits OZ I would LOVE an opportunity to try it out. I'll be busy for a few months (new house) but have been itching for a try.

    If this isnt possible maybe you or the Dominant boys can tell me if there is a shop demo one in Adelaide where i could have a bash in a store?

    easier said than done, don't know if any have hit deadalaide. Havent seen them in any shops or on websites. Dont think there is even a NT wick in this town to try. :(

    having worked sales in this town good bass gear is hard to shift, particularly amps.

    I'm kinda lost in the preamp tour to the US. So I think I read it is finaly on it's way and a company in Austrailia is covering the shipping cost or something like that. Michael J hasn't sent any emails upating us so I thought is was not happening. LAst I heard they were collecting money but didn't know how many people were paying and shipping breakup. I was on the list of US tour but got lost in the shuffle.

    Sorry Warfender, some things were not that easy to solve, and I take my blame for all, because I could thake more care about timing. But the preamp will be in US soon :)

    Serghei
    Hopu
    Jogi
    Mr Demeter
    Big Bad Bass

    Thanks!

    Well I looked for them and nothing, haha!

    So... I want everybody to be happy here. Does everybody agree with the list above? Do you think there are others to include?

    Waiting for your reply guys, then we will chose the winners somehow :)

    I think the rules were pretty simple; 'try the preamp in person, sign the manual and post a review'. :d

    I'm sure Flo could bend the rules if someone inadvertently forgot to sign the manual but you'd need to at least have handled/tried the preamp! ;)

    I look forward to the decision and one thing is for sure... the winner will be one VERY happy/lucky person! :p

    An 'on-line program'... you're going soft Flo; do it old school, with the names written on scraps of paper and thrown into a hat (I'm sure that it has the same outcome as an on-line prog :lol:)! ;)
