Interesting as Bass Guitar Mag features this and says product street price to be $289. Maybe they’re gonna be flown here First Class?

Seems a lot more reasonable, still not cheap but the quality of Tech 21 is well known, and quality doesn’t often come cheap.

Would seem to make sense to import this directly from the US. After shipping, VAT and Customs you're probably still looking at a £100 saving i.e. nearer £300

Or if you're actually travelling to the US even better - you'll fall under the VAT and Customs thresholds for personal goods (assuming you're not bringing much else back of value that are 'imports' ) of £390 and you can then pick this up for nearer to £200. Which is what US bass players are paying.

A lot of places devalue the parcel to like $15 so you won't get charged anything anyway. I've bought a lot of pedals from the US and most stores do this as they realise it's good for business!

Ive never brought from a us store, but I thought they get local TAX added to the listed price at checkout?

Only for residents of that state i think.(when buying online)

Of course we are assuming that it wasn’t a typo of £299 instead of £399

Its a big mark up from their usual fly rigs

This looks interesting but for that price, no thank you. Why shell out all that money when you can get a pretty decent Steve Harris tone with bright roundwounds, a P pickup, low action, and a bit of elbow grease in the picking hand(+ maybe a compressor but this box doesn't have one anyways)?

Very interesting, I'm finding stages getting quieter and quieter to the point where i'm only hearing the bass through in ears. Nothing really from my amp. Good if one of these came up on here second hand.

It is showing some pretty good versatility between those 2 clips.

It's best to contact your local dealer for pricing outside the US. We can't predict or dictate the price as there are too many variables has previously mentioned.

Thanks very much for jumping in. One of our local retailers is currently quoting £399 = $500 (give or take a $). You can appreciate that's causing a few of us to hesitate and we're hoping it's a typo on their ad.

[Aside: I'm loving my Red Ripper btw - guess it's now a collectors item since you've stopped production! No plans to replace?]

Again showing it’s versatility. I’m getting severely tempted by this.....

I assume anyone buying this pedal has to be a West Ham fan, or not give a stinky poo about football.  Nope , claret and blue 💩
