does it make a difference if its die-cast or machined? I mean, it's probably machined because its easier and die cast ones are probably only cost effective when they're being mass manufactured and sold..


I would guess machined is better than die cast---

machined is taken from a solid piece of metal rather than pouring metal into a cast- then buffed...

tc electronic gsystem/ernie ball volume pedals/typically more expensive stuff is machined

i'd take either- at that point- no difference if you can get a backstop take it

Jeries, Can you get just the driver in white or does one need to buy the whole kit to get one in white? Please PM me the cost when you get a chance.

Thanks


I have a personal hook up for myself- not just the drivers I have to get the whole system but I can get for myself a white driver upon request...instead of black.

it isn't something i'd be able to sell or hook anyone else up with- if i could i'd be making a ton of extra money- but i can't.

in fact i have to pay over twice what i used to pay for the kits.

Kyle has one- beat him up

I might get a white jem- in that case i make take advantage of my white sus hookup

Understood Jeries.. Never hurts to ask though. It's only a cosmetic issue anyway. Mine still plays perfectly.

They need to release a white driver and/or kit to the masses. I think they would sell quite a few more if so.
