Last month I bought a pre owned Bolsa Bass from Reverb.com. It took nearly a month to arrive here in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I turned it on and everything sounded great except for one thing: It was really out of tune.
The third knob fails and I can´t get in tune. Sending it back to the seller was not an option since It cost like $100 or more to ship this thing from Argentina. So I decided to give it to my local repair guy.
He told me I needed to replace the chip that correspond to that knob. He also told me that the synth was cheaply made.
So I wrote to the guys of C&G to see if they could send a spare chip to replace it.
The answer was:
Sorry to hear that. Unfortunately we don’t have any spare chips.
You should return the synth to the seller.
also he told me that They wouldn´t be producing anymore bolsa bass in the future.
If your bolsa bass breaks you will not be able to find a solution for fixing.
So dont´buy this piece of crap. WORST customer service ever.
