New Crafter BA400EQ with 70% off on Amazon...

Recommended Posts

Afternoon gents and gentettes, 

During the course of my daily internet stumblings where I am always on the hunt for bass related deals, I came across this...

The usual RRP for one of these is around £600 and having owned one of these before, they are actually very fine acoustic basses. In fact I rate Crafter as one of the most underrated acoustic brands out there, but that's a different story...

I've just pulled the trigger on one as at the absolute worst, I know I can sell it on eBay for a good £100 more, and as it's being sold by Amazon (not a 3rd party Amazon user) if there are any issues, I'm relatively safe! 

So, for anyone after an acoustic bass, £146 for a brand new one of these is absolutely nuts! Not sure why they're being sold for 70% off, but I'm not arguing!

Fill yer boots!

Must of been a one-off... Shame. Honestly, I don't need this bass, but couldn't resist at £146!

Amazon occasionally do this. I picked up a £100+ box set of CDs for £6 a few years ago and they do tend to honour things. The Geddy Lee book at £20 was another stroke of luck I had with them.

The Camelcamelcamel website is very handy for seeing Amazon price history. Here it is for that Crafter

...so you can see that the £146 price was very much a big drop - though they have done it briefly before. I use it to double check whether something really is at a very low price, or whether it is the prevailing price. You can also tell 3C to alert you when a price drops below a certain point - having had my original Geddy book order cancelled at £15 earlier in the year when stocks dried up, I set an alert so knew when it came back out and down to £20.

Interesting stuff... 

It's curious as to the logic behind such drops, I can't imagine it prompting mass purchases given it's such a comparatively niche product. Maybe they simply had one left that hadn't sold and tanked the price to get it gone... if so, it worked!
