Nope. Mine were perfect except for a small amount of scuffing around the cutouts. Contact Oliver and maybe he will send you a new enclose or give you a discount. That's not cool.

It clearly specifies on the website that the Shruthi-1 enclosure doesn't include holes for the power switch and input/output volume pots. These parts are strictly optional and only included for people who make their own enclosures. Although the stock enclosure can be modified to squeeze in the knobs and switch, it was decided that the layout was tight enough as it is, and there was no place to put them that didn't detract from the aesthetics of the case, so they were left out.
I don't miss having a power switch at all, but I do think I will eventually drill a spot for the output volume pot, as I use guitar pedals for effects, and often the signal is too hot unless I use a mixer.
