I think those long waits were because they didn't have anything to ship, seems improved now, but yeah not holding my breath :lol:
? they're shipping like crazy now, very quick turnaround :)

Bringing this back to life as now I've got one again :lol:

Updated the firmware and theres a couple of new amps, the Blues Jnr and a Dumble ODS 50W which is now my go to amp, sounds soooo great, also theres a Klon and a couple of EQ pedals.

The new unit shipped with a grounded PSU unlike my original one which came with a 2 prong job, which altho' I didn't have the hum issues peeps in america seemed to, its a nice upgrade to have, the unit is super quiet noise wise, very pleased!

Free bag as well currently which is nice as I regretted not getting one when I ordered my first one... $406 inc gst (calculated at checkout) landed.

Not so sure about that. I kick-started my third learning attempt when I turned 40. With today's gear I just ended up mucking about with gear, not really learning guitar and music.

Mucking about with gear isn’t learning? Ah… that’s where I’ve been going wrong!

Have they added some sort of eq you can put in the chain? Thats the only thing I thought was lacking. Otherwise a great little unit
