I once again emailed Johnson to update him. His response was ship it back to him DHL and he will determine how to resolve the issue. I dont like that. I havent got another response since that, but I think it is a chinese holiday this week.
I feel for you man.
"If" you were to go that route, I think you would be one of the first(at least that I know of). Hopefully it won't cost more than $150-$170 to ship back. It's a BS expense that you shouldn't have to eat though.
What would suck more is the time and effort you have already put into repair AND the fact that it would probably take at least 3 weeks to turn around.
I think I might have to do the same for my amp. Putting things in perspective, I think the wife would rather me invest in $200 for shipping vs. investing in the tools and time to learn how to fix the issue. At least that's the vibe I got when I was building my boxes...
The other option I was thinking about was trying out one of those iNuke amps just for the hell of it. However, that would be a $500 investment vs. dropping $200 to ship the Clone back to Johnson. Either way I’m going to get the evil eye… Just can't win with these women…haha
