Being a decent neighbor is soooooo lame
Which word bothers you most? Political or Correctness?
P.S. -- you know, of course, I'm just yanking your chain.
Not incorrect - just awkward.
Like "stupider" which I always see as a verb...
You know what inconsiderate? Expecting me to be considerate. That's a microaggression aggression right there.
It's the close proximity.
"Coffee is HOT"
"Guitar amp is LOUD"
"Water is wet"
"DO NOT INVERT" on the bottom of cups and glasses?
"KNIVES ARE SHARP" on cutlery?
"PEOPLE ARE DUMB" on T-shirts?
But hang on, the GR-55 is a guitar synth module. Does it come with a built-in amp and speakers?
Roland and Boss are more rock and roll than anything we will ever do with our lives.
My bigger Mesas came with warning tags warning the consumer that those amps were capable of causing permanent hearing damage.
It reminds me of this movie......
Translation issue. It should have been omitted for other parts of the world.
Wait i can't use a roland amp in the shower? I write all my best work in the shower
Sure you can, just don't have the water running...
Going to do some market research on demand for a new umbrella mod that attaches to the top of an amp and allows it to be used in the shower
That's almost certainly the case. In the 80's, I remember buying Boss and Roland products and getting huge laughs out of the manuals because of poor translation.
I still remember something from the GR-700 manual about "When playing long tone with high fret". While not an example of some of the really hilarious things I've in their manuals read, it stuck with me for some reason.
What Big Daddy LH said. We could learn a great deal from the Japanese about courtesy.
Reading manuals doesn't make you lame, it makes you a possessor of common sense.
The manual is probably just suggesting that using this with headphones instead of running it into an amp would be more considerate.
Relax folks, again, I'll state again that I posted this because I found it funny that it's an "Important Note" in an owners manual for musical gear-- similar to a warning not to put your lawn chair in the dryer, unnecessary and ironic. Also, apologies if the title somehow offended some of you Roland fans-- but I would also recommend loosening up those tight pants.
Also, for the record I'm part Japanese (there are pro's and con's to over-politeness, happy to share anecdotes) and am using this Roland synth for it's MIDI capabilities to help me notate classical orchestrations -- VERY ROCK AND ROLL!!!
Haha, reminded me that I had this photo lying around -- my old ROLAND Blues cube in the shower! I've never been able to recall why this happened, but now I'll just assume at some point in the future I'll travel back in time and set it up for this conversation.

I bought an iron once that came with the warning
'Do not iron clothes while they are being worn. (Don't laugh, this has actually happened)'
If that were an American made product it would have said something along the lines of, "If the neighbors complain, turn it up so you can't hear them."
