Tiger Paw sKale
Hi all,

I have a Tiger Paw sKale that has become discoloured. It's a kind of mucky green now.

Has anybody else had the same issue?

Just wondering...

Thanks. D

RE: Tiger Paw sKale
Same here - I understand the treatment applied (anodising?) isn't that robust (sadly). FWIW, I just live with mine = as it's on an Ekos SE, so doesn't match anyway.

When we originally launched the black version we had a batch produced by a supplier who applied an incorrect finish. Please email me at the website address and I will arrange to ship you out a newer version.

This is the kind of service we don't see too often.

Thumbs up Smile

Yes, I had one too and Roger replaced it for me very quickly. Yes HBerg quite so and very nice when it happens. Certainly makes my life and other retailers lives easier Cool

Kind regards,

As I said, not too often I see this kind of service but you are one of the few others that walk that extra mile for the customers Smile

Cheers.

The same issue affected batches of Black Ittoks back in the day.

The bearing blocks on those turned green .

That's great service.

My Nima Skale is of course chrome but in actual fact I would have liked it to be anodised like the Linn Ones, works great though and obviously a perfect visual match the the Roksan weight.
