  1. Yeah, that be the principle. We sent hundreds of sea kayaks to all parts of the country, and the cardboard box factory of all people kindly advised us we'd be better off with naked kayaks in plastic tubes. We had a total of one damage, and the full price of that kayak was way lower than the price of hundreds of protective boxes. I guess we were lucky, but we did count on the fragile look, and it seemed to work.
  2. Have always been slightly wary about playing other people's stuff, and felt way more at ease with writing my own material and letting famous people play it... as a tribute so to speak. Sadly, Bach, Beethoven, Strawinsky and others were not in line with my thinking.
  3. Ha. ๐Ÿ˜€ In Oslo, Neil Young met up with the Young Neils, and then wore their t-shirt when he performed. Loved that. BTW, the Young Neils were known musicians in other bands, and certainly not the preying types.
  4. Good idea, also because if you don't put on a value, then customs will decide on a value, and it might be high.
  5. Ah. Incoming parcels to the UK. I was talking about parcels sent from the UK and handled by postNL - as per KiOgon's case. My guess is they have different routines.
  6. Hm. I've not experienced that for maybe 10 or 20 years, and I'm both expecting it and being a stickler for noticing details like that. "My" numbers the last decade(s) in those cases have been new. Have one in my phone's postal app right now that I find slightly extra weird, again with a tracking ID that doesn't resemble the original one: Presumedly sent from the UK, postNL getting involved and sending me updates, some party generating a new number for it, and my Norse app saying that it has been delivered (correct) as well as copying the postNL bit that they are still waiting to receive the parcel from the sender. Anyway, I'm just hoping and trusting that @KiOgon's parcel will arrive.
  7. Part of this might be that postNL, or one of their partners, sometimes generates a new tracking identity and track that one instead - for reasons unknown to me. In the mean time, the physical package just keeps toddling along. The Norwegian post sometimes does the same, with the same result.
  8. Really, really comfortable. Fast neck with confidence inducing "grip". Fantastic 4-band EQ, of which the middle two bands IMHO are at the core of the sound shaping. Great looks. Nice colours available. EBMM's lim.ed. varieties sometimes are breathtaking. Can't fault them in any way. Bought most of mine untried from zee webz, and they all were flawless. (Same with the StingRays, BTW)
  9. Not necessarily though, as many many sellers are indeed willing to send to the whole of Europe despite the ill-chosen text. Living in a non-EU country, I always ask, and have not gotten a "no" yet. Often, sending to non-EU countries costs the same anyway.
  10. Shocking, and it's not only Hermes either. Here, our royal mail normally is very good at what they do, but an illoyal worker simply folded a poster tube in two when the box was not deep enough for the whole tube. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ Question is whether you trust the person who sent the photo, but it seems you do. Can you guys expect any form of compensation?
  11. Agreeing with @Bankai, this kit is most probably overpriced. Even in expensive Norway, that amount would land me a new TD-11 with mesh in the January sales (I know, coz I nearly bought one). Edit: sorry for bad reading. I stirred at a kit without realising it comes with extras. Please disregard.
  12. I done you a favour, but my "listen" is Fake News as laptop sound only works once in a while - not today. Will try again though.
  13. Nonsense! ๐Ÿ˜ก It's not the amount of strings that counts. It's their length. Simply remove the dusty end, doing away with neck dive at the same time. Success! ๐Ÿ˜‰
  14. As to Soft Machine, there was also the nice little detail of a post Soft Machine band in one generation consisting of all the members of a previous Soft Machine generation. I think it was Nucleus - not sure. This tidbit at the time seemed unsupported by Wikipedia, but the guy who wrote about it seemed to know exactly what he was talking about. Not important, but I liked the thought.
  15. Whatever you choose, don't make it "Ray Against The Machine". We don't need forrin capitalisation here. "Ray Against the Machine" is fine though. ๐Ÿ˜€
