NZ Passport? Had to renew mine recently. Was told that standard service will take around a month.
It was more than that. I'd say possibly two months.

If that doesn't butter your toast JB I've got a brand new Jensen RI P8R. Hit me up if you want to try it.

Urgh, so having issues with other orders not coming via USPS so have asked for a refund on this...

On the bright side Thomann have Jensen speakers so have an 8 ohm C8R on the way, just sounds better to me than a P8R... should get rid of the farty ness when you crank the Cub!

Since shipping is so pricey I got them to throw in a Nobels ODR-1 mini for a bit of fun!

In the mail towards Mike C's place are the parts for a Deluxe Reverb with a few mods to fit inside my blonde 2x10 combo. Be kinda cool to have a forumite-built amp to play my forumite-built guitar through!

Not really in the post any longer, but only just cracked the package open on this IR200. Weird feeling, as I generally never buy any guitar stuff new.

Cheers to the Rockshop for sharpening the pencil on pricing to allow for a local purchase :thumbup:

Are you using a pre-amp before it at all?

Nope, it has a bunch of built in amp models I'm exploring at the moment. I will also use it with a line feed from my Torpedo Captor when using my Marshalls with just the IR part engaged.

Looks like my 3rd Katana is incoming, there is a pattern here. I get a bad cold/ear infection/covid, my ears turn mushy. I play through the helix - Oh No! Everything sounds wrong! Impulse buy an amp. Realise its my ears being shit. Sell the amp. Rinse. Repeat.

At least I didn't go with the AC10 that was on my watchlist, lucky escape there!
So, is that low alcohol or no alcohol at all? mmmm, no alcohol, do you want to try it? Noooooooooo.

Yeah I've been looking at that but it only goes up to 4000mm sadly. I need 4001mm, else I'd be whacking it on the 12 months interest free, bargain!
