I think at one point the package clocked a 9 G hit (with FedEx).
They also found that putting "Fragile" or the like on a box made it more likely to be banged around. Lol.
Ya well im never shipping a heavy package again with ups or fedex im gonna use private shippers on uship they wont be as fast but my item will arrive in good shape.
My o2r has 1/4 in thick steel sides and they sheared it not bent sheared that takes a massive hit. But the board still works and they paid so it was free. Sad i cant say the same for my SL40 i have to replace all 56 faders.
