I was at my local shop to take my guitar in for a setup and the owner was talking with some delivery dude about amp packaging. There was a big Marshall Tube Head on the counter... I don't know why, the dude keeps all the stuff he does maintence on on the counter ~___~... but anyways, he took a Line 6 Spider III out of the boxes and stated how well they package these amps, while Marshall doesn't quite do as well with their TUBE HEADS. Over a thousand dollars for something that gets less protection than an amp for a few hundred?

I guess that's sad, I mean, if it gets to me in one working piece, I don't really care... but then again, I'm not a Marshall player anyway...

well its true, my spider was brilliantly packed. marshalls a big company, why waste money on packaging 8-)

i have a spider 2 and that thing was full of foam and packing peanuts and all this crazy stuff. you could literally drop it out of a 1st story window.

They package them so nicely because they don't need anymore returned than they already get because of the above average tone produced from these excellent amps.

I think he means that Marshall doesn't spend as much on packaging as Line 6 because people are more likely to return the Spider than the tube head.

Right?
