2 f**ked up pads, one box. Guess I'll have to contact EA again and get them to send me another one.

While your at it can you get a guitar and box for me? 6 weeks, multiple contacts with EA, 2 RMA requests and I still can't get my guitar replaced. They have about 20 hours to make a move before I contact the BBB. :mad:

UPDATE: Just checked with UPS. Apparently EA has sent me a package. It's only 1.5 lbs so it sounds like an empty box to return my guitar first :uzi:but at least something is finally moving.

Good luck with your next drums. I'm hoping mine don't die. That's the instrument I play the most.

My bass pedal isn't working, and my strum bar for the guitar is messed up.

And guess what! They signed a deal with a crappy 3rd party accessory maker...when they can't fix their official ones.

That's pretty bad, IMO.

Mine haven't broken yet but they could be more sensitive.

Dammit! Looks like you got everybody's sensitivity. So much for even distribution.

I'll take some plz thnk u

Twisted, it's been a month and a half? Good grief. I mean, didn't the website say like 2-day air shipping? Geez...



Anyways, the good news is that I've used Duct Tape on my red sensor, it it works near perfect. I was able to pass Train Kept A Rollin. I haven't done the same practice sections yet, but when I do, I'll make sure to say what percentile I can get now.

(Now, if I can just pass Don't Fear The Reaper...)

That sucks man. I haven't had problems with anything but the guitar. The strum bar was like your red pad on the drums so I had to get a new box set.
