    I don't understand the question. Are you talking about reflections from stage lights?

    I did an outdoor gig once where I had to squat down to see my tuner . . . REALLY sucked!

    i could put polarized sunglasses lens ontop of the screens :D
  9. I don't know how or if this would work, but they make the polarized screen protectors for cell phones. That may work. Worth a shot if it is that maddening to you.

    its kinda hard to tune when you cant see your tuner :D
  12. Touche. The glare will be all but gone though :D.

    I'm having a little bit of trouble with this myself on my M13. The problem is my glasses cause some glare and I can't read my effect type. I tried dropping the contrast and then the words aren't clear enough. I end up bending over and adjusting my glasses like an old man trying to read a cell phone instruction booklet.

    Just to be clear, I'm not getting older. That is NOT what is going on.:meh:

    Waaah for me. :(

    I've always though about building a cover of sorts to shade the effects but still allowing access.

    There's always hiring a tech to switch your effects and tune your basses for you.
