Your welcome, Bazz.

You have a lifetime warranty with your pedal and if you have any queries, just ask.

Oh, and ALL the controls work in REVERSE!

Thanks Bazz

Yep. I have stamped a + (PLUS) and - (MINUS) sign on the casing, but thought I'd better mention it (not sure how many Tour Of Duty guys actually read the instructions and, even with the correct pickup impedance, said that the Grunt didn't boost!).

Cheers

Glad you mentioned it Heath, coz without my glasses, I can't read a thing.

Case in point, took my amp and cab downstairs for last night's jam. Plugged head in, connected speaker cable, plugged bass in. Turned gain to 12 o'clock,turned master up a bit, NO SOUND!

Panic!

Why does MarkBass make the line out and Master Volume knobs the same size and colour? sheesh scared me silly lol.

Ahhh... the bonuses of getting old! I'm the same, can't see where to solder without my glasses; start burning up all the wires... not good!

Maybe try a little sticky red dot on the master...?

I've ended up buying one of those attachable illuminated magnifying glasses from Jaycar. Doing Sneaky's bass electronics was a nightmare on my eyes without it.

Or remove the knob that's not used much.

I used to have an amp that came with a few important knobs/shafts missing; it was good if I let someone borrow it, as they couldn't adjust my sound without a pair of pliers!

our first colour TV was a Blaupunkt, the only thing you could do without the remote was to turn it on. The TV had no other controls,no volume or channel up / down, nada.

Yep, thieves stole it, and I larfed and larfed when I saw that they didn't take the remote, I hoped it was stuck on SBS lol rotfl.

According to Aust Post tracker

28/1 received Rosewood QLD

30/1 Processed AP Granville NSW

31/1 Processed AP Granville NSW

4/2 Processed AP Granville NSW

so, it appears it's being processed 3 times in Granville NSW!

Hulloooooo Aus Post, I'm in ADELAIDE, down here, no, HERE !

Stuff I ordered 3am Saturday arrived last week, it's a lucky dip with these jokers.

My mate who IS A POSTIE received his car carpet he ordered on 12/12 yesterday,so what hope do we have lol.

I remember going to an Aus Post Xmas pissup,and they all got bonuses for delivering 95% of parcels!

I said to the manager, "so, you get bonuses for losing 5% of all parcels?"

Hi Bazz,

Apparently your pedal is now back in Queensland, at Milton! What the...?

We've never lost pedals before, or should I say... Australia Post has never lost any of our pedals before. Must be due to the terrorist threats...?

Will check at post office when I also check for James' missing pedals, which are apparently still being delivered and on transit. Unbelievable.

Sorry for any inconvenience.
Heath
