They are sending a replacement set and I will be sending the set I have back. Rory even posted a video of him testing the set he is sending. Looking forward to giving these another go.

Zo.....What did the old sound hole look like compared to the new?

No idea. I have pics of the old set that I can compare with the new set when they arrive.
