Wanted:48 inch silver ribbon

Post by bud1451 » Mon Dec 10, 2012 10:15 pm

Just purchased a set of carver amazing silvers, I'm getting distortion from about 6 inches of my ribbon where it wrinkled/deformed on the second section from the top. Only noticeable on certain music at loud levels, thinking it needs to be replaced. Im located in Canada. Thanks

First, try tightening the inner screws VERY SLIGHTLY (no more than 1/8th turn alternating sides) in the affected area.

Too much & you'll pop the magnets & ruin the ribbon.

Some times sellers will ship-- depends on how bad you want it and how bad they want to sell it. Offer to let them walk it into a UPS store unpackaged and pay to have it boxed and shipped, might take the stress out of it for the seller and ensure it will get packed properly.
