It feels like the perfect tilting angle to me. I'm not gonna get out a measuring stick --- too lazy --- but I would say maybe three inches.
I like it.
Mine slips a little within its harness, but I could probably correct that with a little bit of tape. Doesn't bother me.
Looks so dope.
Aesthetically: Feels waaaaaay more badass and hip hop, which is something that appeals to me greatly.
I give it the thumbs up.
Maschine II or Maschine Deluxe (or whatever they end up calling it) will surely look and feel more like this, whenever that comes out.
