    Hello Everyone

    Just curious to see if any one have tried some of the DX4 manifold from china ??
    I got a few and it seams like they are sucking air from somewhere, i put new cap tops and new dampers, everything was working fine until i broke the cyan manifold then broke the black one too, i have a few new ones from awesome china and both seams like they are sucking air,
    Did anyone have any luck with this s#$t ? maybe i am doing something wrong, they seam pretty cheep hehe

    Thanks

    I have not tried using any manifolds from China. I do use dampers and that is about the only thing I have had decent luck using.
    I tried using their cap tops but that created more problems then it fixed for me.

    Now I only use Roland OEM cap tops. They cost more but they also seem to last longer then any cap tops I tired from China.

    The only time I tried a non OEM manifold it sucked!:eek: (Air mostly, but the whole situation did as well).

    All manifolds sold separate from the head are aftermarket. Epson doesn't sell the separately to anyone. I have had good success with the ones we sell. It took many sources to find one that worked well.
