Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

I went into cash converters to have a look at that one. Pretty sure it's a knock off, but either way it plays awful. Wondering if I should have a word to them, would be gutted if some kid ended up buying it thinking it was genuine...

Re: What's hot on Trademe right now!

To be honest, I actually love the idea of what they tried to achieve here. I just hate absolutely everything about the way it turned out. That bass is beyond awful.
