    Hi Everyone!


    Just wondering if you kind US chaps might help me. I'm upgrading my regular sansamp to the new three way programmable one. My girlfriend is visiting her parents in AZ, USA at the moment, and I plan to order it, and have her bring it back to the UK for me, to save money.

    Thing is, I'm familiar with the UK online stores - but could you point me in the direction of the best deal I could get on it from a US website?


    Hope this makes sense! Thanks in advance!



    Regards


    Mike

    Thanks Jim!

    That's perfect. Although it was the three way programmable one I was after, I found it. One hundred pounds, for me, roughly - suits me just fine!


    Much obliged!

    Chaps - sorry to resurrect, but musician's friend is out of stock. Anyone about who can recommend an alternative at a similar price?


    Humbly,

    David - I checked music123, and have already said I couldnt find it. A further two checks have yielded nothing. If you could perhaps direct me, I'd appreciate it.

    As for ZZounds - seems ideal. Many thanks.

    Be aware that once you find it, you may not be able to pay for it - most take only credit cards issued in the US. I've had to go without or ask the old girl to get stuff for me in the past. The alternative is ebay sellers/stores who tend to take paypal.

    yes you could try ebay. i saw the model u are after going for $199 US that had a buy it now function so you wouldnt have to wait. i think that item has ended now but it was listed by a store that tends to advertise items weekly.

    i can also confirm that music123 didnt have sansamp programmable when i last checked there.

    is there a possibility of asking ur gf to check at one of the larger US stores in person?

    **EDIT: found one on ebay - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=41411&item=7330406365&rd=1

    1 day remaining, 1 available.

    also, musictoyz and pedalgeek stock every other tech 21 pedal except the sansamp prog.

    hi

    you can tell her to go to a shop and buy it there.
    at Robb's (Boulder, CO) they lower their price to come close to the internet price so...

    it can be a solution

    I'm amazed, I searched for it on there....

    You'll be delighted, no doubt, to hear that the item has been orderered from ZZounds, and my gf will be bringing it back for me.


    Many thanks ! !

    Sorted. I sold my Fulltone bassdrive after getting mine - it did all the grit I wanted on the second of the three switches (paid for it too!)
