QUOTE (Bachmann)Class 37 Sound locomotives

Bachmann Europe Plc has received a number of complaints regarding the recently released sound Class 37 locomotives which some consider to be too quiet. Bachmann reduced the factory setting volume because previously we had received complaints that they were set too loud!

The two recently released examples are 32-380DS No. 37698 'Coedbach' and 32-781DS No. 37-057 'Viking'.

Contrary to some rumours now circulating, the volume on these locomotives can be increased by adjusting CV63. The factory setting for these two locomotives was set at 50 but can be adjusted to suit between 0 and 64. The earlier releases of Class 20 and Class 66 locomotives were both factory set to the maximum level of 64.

Some people are just never happy


Turn up the volume !

Serves as a good example as to how difficult it can be to sell high tech products wth many variables to the general public!

The new irritant at Model Railway Shows is Bachmann Class 20s chirping away on DCC Sound. Particularly annoying repetitive noise at small exhibitions. Personally I'd turn then all the way down

Unfortunately some members of the retail trade have had these locos returned by customers who are using the old E-Z Command controller with a request for the volume to be adjusted because the punter can't do it himself! The moral has to be that if you buy a sound loco you need to have suitable controller!

If you are serious about DCC and DCC sound getting a decent controller is essential.
