Some of this post is recycled from a reply I made to a "swr customer service" post. But I'm asking that any members who have POSITIVE stories to chase away fears that some of our old favorite companies fallen off the proverbial cliff. Tell a short story about good customer service, or well built piece of equipment after a company was bought out. or whatever you feel moved to share. RECYCLED POST: It would be really nice to see old favorite manufacturers to continue making great/classic and ground breaking products even after being aquired by conglomerates. The new owner benfits, the remaining employees benefit, and of course the faithful cutomers win too!!! This hits close to home because I'm considering buying a barely used Eden WT300 head. Just crossing my fingers that I can get good service if I need it! the amp is about 11 years old, but looks like is been very lightly used. very clean inside.
