    Check out my previous post. Also check out www.stringforum.net. I placed another review there. What I like most about the Alpine 2000 was the quick release feature of the mounting system. It makes it very fast. Nothing special about the clamps or the tension head; they just work like the other brands, but this has a much better price. I also like the H-shape base. I prefer this over the X-shape base, which takes up more space. I had to go to the hardware store and buy very small allen wrenches to calibrate the machine, because it was not included with the machine :cry: which costed me a couple of dollars. I love this machine and I can't wait for my strings do break again.

    How much did they charge for shipping? How long did it take them to get the machine to you and were there any strings included with your purchase?

    It took 1 week to get the machine. No free strings included.

    I think it was around $27 for shipping and taxes only for Texas buyers.

    I got 10 packs of 16-gauge string and shipping was $35 for a Hercules 610.

    The machine is solid, but not finely engineered. The fixed clamps stick a little on the base (they hold string fine) because the base isn't ground and polished. The 6-point mounting clamps work okay, linear string gripper works fine. There are a lot of protrusions that you can catch string on as you're pulling, i'd say this is the most annoying aspect. Definitely not a professional machine, but it can provide a perfectly good stringjob.
