I feel bad adding to the negativity, but my chromexcel ultimate Indys from Leather Soul had exactly the same problem. The local cobbler restitched and glued them; his stitching came out almost immediately leaving a gluey mess, so no more of my business for him. As others say I've not had similar problems with C&J, EG, Blundstone, RMW etc. Quote: Originally Posted by NewYorkRanger I have had (and still have most) about 10 pair of Aldens and these...
^ Same for me so I suspect not an uncommon issue. Panta wouldn't necessarily have to offer a fully customizable service like Hober, but a few workable lengths/widths would be helpful, say like Drakes standard widths of 3.25" or 3.5" with proportional length.

I think this is an appropriate use of digital music. You can carry lots of music in your pocket and listen to it in places that wouldn't allow for indepth listening in any case - the gym, driving, public transport, etc. I have lots of vinyl, mostly bought...

They both compare fairly well. The price/quality ratio is probably slightly in favour of a Japanese model if you're buying from Europe, and a US model (AVRI) if you're buying in the US. The weakness in the Japanese models is the pickups but there are lots of good aftermarket replacements available.
