Prices from Thomann etc post Jan 31st

Nothing will change for a year.  After that it depends on the trade deal that is negotiated.

Exactly. The trade deal will be of utmost importance. If the UK somehow manages to screw up a good trade deal (aka they leave the EU single market) then forget Thomann since every package will have to go through customs everytime.

Wouldn't surprise me if that happens but I'm hoping for the best!

Buy lots while you can. In a year's time it'll be game over for decent prices....

Taking this to heart I've just spent £2K at Thomann on a new pa for my rock trio :)  Upgrading the vintage Carlsboro....

Easily solved. Just leave the UK.

Plenty more cheap Thomann goodies for me. 😁 

Oh, and did I mention the cheap beer, low cost of living, borderless travel, and the right to live and work anywhere in Europe unhindered. I really miss the UK. 😋

Except if they take our 'secession' seriously, and retaliate by not allowing Brits to settle in Europe without the same amount of hassle this country's going to give EU citizens trying to settle here!

At this stage I'm not sure whether I should be glad or worried that have a EU, non-UK passport.

I might just do that, what with my newly minted Irish citizenship and all! :)

I've got a couple of bits to order, will hit 'checkout' tomorrow while we're still in!

They'll probably put them up a bit, and "blame Brexit" for the increase, on Friday. 

Or course the sensible solution is to not buy anything at all - own 1 bass guitar, 1 amplifier and 1 lead.

I'd invite you all over here to stay in Ireland but... you know... well... wow, this is awkward... 😳

For the next 12 months the UK is still in the Single Market and Customs Union (and must abide by all its rules), so for those 12 months there should be little or no change. After that is anyone's guess. In the UK we might not have to pay customs on items from the likes of Thomann after we leave properly, however, I can't see UK customers benefiting from distance selling protections they have now.

They might just buy a UK operation to get round any taxes etc. Like Musikhaus? have done with DV24/7.

It's Music Store, the other internet giant in Germany. 😉

Not a problem for me, as I have a UK passport, and pre-existing EU citizenship. Best of both worlds. 😎

(Of course all UK citizens had the same rights before the lunatics were put in charge of the asylum)

I really wish I could but thanks to Brexit it looks unlikely that I will be able to. Ive looked at every option for getting a non uk passport and can't find any way. I'd give anything to get me and my family out of the uk permanently.

I'm very thankful I got out of the UK when I did. Over 4 years ago now, but I was working, saving and planning for the move for 10 years prior to that, so it's been a long road. Luckily I got my residency card here long before the U.K had a mental breakdown. Sadly, as you say, it's unlikely that it will be so easy after the next 12 months is up.

Speaker, mains or instrument?

11 months, not 12. Transition ends 31/12/20.

/pedant, but don’t want anyone to get caught out.

Thanks. I have now been vaccinated against Brexit so it makes no difference to me.

 

Anyway........

 

Back to Thomann

That's the one. Knew it was one of the German retailers.
