No marks on my Epifani 2-12

    Hey guys I just got this used. It sounds great and very powerful. When I went in the back to to find out info on it I found that there are no marks on the info area.

    This is my first dealing with Epifani. Are all their amps like this?

    Thanks folks...

    That stuff should definitely be written in... especially the serial number.

    It is only written with sharpie. The cab is used. Maybe somebody cleaned the back plate (stubborn beer stains?) with something like simple green, which takes marker off a lot of surfaces.
     
  5. or it was stolen at one point :eek:

    My first guess would be that the L-pad/attenuator has been replaced...likely by a previous owner under warranty. I had one go out on my UL-210 and Epifani sent me a whole new wired-up assembly. When I asked them what to do about the writing in the yellow boxes they told me to just use a sharpie and recreate what was on the original. NOT. I went to the trouble of swapping out the old attenuator for the new one in an effort to keep the cab as original as possible. Mine still has the original backplate with the original writing. It seemed more ethical to do it this way. :(:)

    That's very strange, and quite old fashioned. Why don't they stamp the info on the plate?

    I agree. Bush league on behalf of Epifani, IMO. If they're addressing a warranty issue, I'd think they'd also be referencing the S/N and specs. They could've...should've, actually...written in the information before shipping out the replacement. I'm okay with handwriting, but it should be consistent and identifiable. To my eyes, their S/N label comes from a pre-purchased sequential roll, so that'd obviously be difficult to duplicate on a warranty replacement, but a handwritten + initialed version would work for me. Anything but a blank template and asking the consumer to fill in the information.

    My 2 epis have the marks you'd expect...

    This would *really* bug me. I'd call the folks in NY to find out ***.
