Very good condition
I think MB is one of the best pinball machines ever made!
  John Salvador 8/12/98 53365-40038 Charlotte, NC. Home Use Only, early production (sample?) with what appears to be a Screened Cabinet.  As of 12/16/02, it had 295 plays on it.
  Gary and MaryAnn Martin 8/12/98 53365-400146 Lawrence, Kansas

(an early promo unit, still has software 0.5 in it)

Model Monster Bash -Germany 3 slot
 
I bought it in Belgium
  Richard Wiski 8/20/98 50265-400348 Dallas, TX Still haven't received Monsters of Rock but I'm getting very close, only a matter of time. Monster Bash Rocks. My favorite quote is from the Mummy when he says "My hand is inches from your neck" when you hit the flipper button in attract mode. Favorite sound effect is the Phantom flip sound.
  Bret and Melissa Fritch 8/20/98 53365-400370 Oak Harbor, WA Another great pin. One of my wife's favorite.
Bought NIB for our route with 2 others. She decided it was way to fun not to have at home.  
Todd Yoder 8/21/98 50265-400353 Clarksville, MD Reimport from Germany, purchased 6/23/2001

  Kevin L'Heureux 09/03/98 53365-400580 Valencia, Ca. USA Restoration is complete and it looks brand new. I have completely stripped the cabinet down to bare wood inside and out, and rebuilt all mechanisms top and bottom. I repainted the interior and Bill Davis clear coated the playfield. I have installed the following NOS items,

Side rails, side rail screw nails, cabinet decals, plastic set, coin door, Start button, Launch ball button, Frankenstein, manual, glass, legs, install 4 balls and caution High Voltage stickers. I also added Kerry's scoop weldmont and hole protector and a set of Pinball Pro subwoofer and backbox speakers.

Software version 1.06

This game now ROCKS!

 

  Terry Nelson 9/9/98 53365-400659 Naperville, IL Bought it New In The Box! Great Game!!
  Bob Van Ess 9/19/98 52165-400699 Montoursville, Pa. 17754 My Monster Bash was made in 9/10/98 serial # 52165400699. Interestingly on the back above the serial # it says MonsterBash - Sweden. I guess it was meant to go to Sweden but I don't know if it ever did as I bought it from a pinball dealer here in Pa. I installed the "Pinball Pro speaker upgrade kit" for it and it is great!
The subwoofer is awesome. I've got it setup with a really easy 5 ball and managed to get 4 monster bashes and 2 monsters of rock in one game for a total score of 1.2 billion. After a year of ownership my family still loves the game! I've got a picture of it with the Monsters of Rock lit at my website at

  Martin Reynolds 09/22/98 53365-401705 Fremont, CA Full restoration.
  Bernie 9/24/98 53365-401032 Cincinnati, OH Software - 1.06

Hi score 1.696B
Not 100% sure, but think it was 4 bashes and 2 rocks.  
Mosh MB Champ - 63.5M
Bash Champ - 157M
Rock Champ - 440M

Game is set on 3 ball but with "my" mods - special and replay set to extra ball, increased ball saver time - hate it when they go away too quick ;-)

When I first got it we had it on 5 ball - used to have all my pins that way since I grew up with it, but finally got harrassed into turning it down.  Had a great game once - in the 1.8-1.9B range on 5 ball that included Lyman's Lament.  
  Mike Scott 9/24/98 53365-401035 Dothan, AL http://www.dmspinballs.com
  Terry Kuhns 9/25/98 533665400994 Mifflinburg, PA I got it out of a local 'TILT' arcade. I repaired the scoop hole, fixed a broken pop bumper bracket, replaced the flasher on top the scoop hole. It seems the repair mechanics have a habit of just cutting wires or removing broken items at these arcades :-( I have gotten it back to 100% working and all it needs now is cabinet decals. Maybe someday I can justify the $200-250 for decals plus all the time involved but for right now it plays fine the way it is!
