The trick is always to mouse over the link and see what it points to, if its not actually www.dhl.com then report as spam :)
thanks JB - yeah did that and it shows dhl.com etc, and takes to a legit website.
Yeah all of that - I just copied the tracking number from the email and entered it directly into the dhl tracking site. Apparently it is out for delivery this afternoon already. So mystery shall be solved shortly...
Did yours turn up? I just got an email that my one has shipped,and the courier tracking number matches up with the email sent from DHL!!! Excited!!!!

P.S. They mentioned in the email that 19,795 Sparks have been shipped this week!!!! Logistically - how does that happen!!!

What is this Spark thingy?

My strings arrived - two month time lag. Arrived wet and repackaged.

Basically its a smart amp with all of positive grids bias amp and effects goodies built in. It has an app that lets you add effects pedals, change amps etc, share tones blah blah, but the thing I'm most interested in is you can play some bars and it listens and creates a backing track with drums and bass for you to play along to, very cool... also you can load up a track or a youtube video etc in the app and it figures out the chords for you and lets you play over it... its going to be a great practice tool for me, plus you can use it as a bluetooth speaker and it looks like a classy old marshall head...

Looked at my order, shipped exactly 3 weeks after I ordered on the 7th of July, 28th July left Hong Kong!

Gotta feel for the people still complaining that they ordered in Nov 2019 and still haven't got theres though... I've been put off kickstarter like things for life after watching so many drag on for sometimes 2-3 years past when they should have shipped so am quite cautious these days!

I suspect the Spark is what a gentleman of your refined tastes refers to as "a toy".

However the brief play I managed last night, it's a pretty f***en awesome toy!

I know what you mean, there was an awesome looking smart watch with a slaved handset, can't quite remember the name of it, but I was really interested. Followed it for a while without dropping any coin and it basically went nowhere, just ended up with a bunch of disgruntled people out of pocket. :?

I was going to bid on that too but decided I didn’t really need it.
How does it play?
