"Only" is strong language.

I've shipped my own MC50 cross-country and back to Pat Hickman (http://classictubeaudio.com/) for various work in a regular box with bubble wrap and peanuts and it went out and came back snug as a bug in a rug.

But that was then. If I needed to do it again now, I'd ship it in my custom-built-for-MC50 Brady Case. https://www.bradycases.com/

That’s awesome you got lucky!

Johnny, I deeply apologize for being “strong”and using the word “only”

Ship how you please!!

I know we are talking about an MC50 which is pretty light, but I would NEVER except bubble wrap and peanuts as a means of shipping an mc2105 or mx110 or anything with a glass faceplate. I would ‘only’ ship or receive using a Proper McIntosh double box. But that’s just me :cool:

If you're gonna call me Johnny, at least omit the "h."

Signed, Jon AKA Jonny :oops: :lol:

P.S. I've shipped numerous guitars, amps, and pedals over the years. I pack 'em solid and never even once has anything I shipped been damaged. So I'll humbly represent it's not luck. 8)

Sorry John, I’ll omit the H next time :lol:

Go to AudioKarma and tell the McIntosh section cats your luck regarding non-McIntosh boxes. Anyways, enjoy your evening.
