    Then lets talk about all, shall we.
    You start.

    The first dimension is single point so you can skip that one because it kind of really does not exist for human rational.
    A point in it self falls on two dimensional but does have three dimensional quality as well.
    So first dimension is for lower life form as well as two dimensional I guess.
    Or is it?

    Save every stitch of packing otherwise they will fight you tooth and nail not to pay you any insurance. Sue them for the entire cost of the amp.

    Wow! That sucks. The seller should have declared the full value of the amp and purchased shipping insurance beyond the base $100. I hope everything works out for you.

    Its a random knob I found floating around the box when I opened it. Turns out its the D.I. level knob. The pot feels good so I think it might have survived.

    Lets all observe a moment of silence for that amp........
    Ok. Now you can pick your custom head shell color from sour mash and roll some new tubes. its a pain in the ass but it will work out right

    UPS Store sucks. They aren't a part of the UPS company though, they just license the brand name and have routine pick-ups and discount rates, etc.
    I DO prefer fedex.

    One time I brought an old Gibson acoustic guitar to a UPS store to ship to Gibson in Nashville. I bought all of the shipping supplies from them on the spot, and insured it for several thousand dollars. And...get this.....the wouldn't let me physically pack up the guitar (in its case) inside the store due to 'insurance'. All I needed was the use of their off-to-the-side counter top to pack things up. This is what the counter tops were made for. Instead, they made me go OUTSIDE the front door, under the overhang on a rainy day. Make the box, add the packing peanuts, tape it up, etc. This made me pretty mad, and I've never given them my business ever since.
    But this is a UPS Store

    UPS themselves don't care about your item. In your pics, it was obviously crushed. The box joints were pushes open, and the front baffle popped out. And the tube broke. And I don't know how those three holes occurred in the cardboard box from a fall/crushing.
    Maybe your package was involved in one of those 100-car pile-ups on the icy highway situations recently.???

    I would try to get my money back from UPS. get a hold of them and send them the pics.

    Damn, that sucks.

    That amp HAD to either be dropped from a great height, was dropped repeatedly, had something heavy dropped on it, or was run over by a forklift or something.

    No excuse for that kind of crap!

    It's been my experience FEDEX is better for shipping musical gear.

    I actually have a head road case that I bought specifically to send out to pick up a Marshall head in another state. I've used it twice since then.

    It does cost me more to ship it empty to or from my location but to me it's worth the assurance that the head is far less likely to take damage.

    I know UPS/FedEx can be rough as hell on things but IMHO that thing did not look even remotely adequately packed at all from the pics. With something that big and heavy the thin layer of bubble wrap might as well just be a thin layer of toilet paper. Sucks either way.

    My first thought was, how much force would be needed to do that much damage and how would it happen, but 30feet to a concrete floor will do it.

    A little bit of glue and it will look as good as new. On the plus side it doesn't look like it was in mint condition and I'm sure you have much nicer ones anyways. So this is a nice story you get tell every time someone asks about the amp.

    I ordered a combo amp 15 years ago or so and they dropped it on the side. Didn't totally come apart like yours but doesn't stand up straight anymore. I just lived with it cause it still worked, and it wasn't a Marshall.
