    I just e-mailed Ashdown and asked if they discontinued the RM 800. I'll let you guys know if/when I get a response.

    They did discontinue the RM 800. We ordered the RM 800 EVO, or hope that we did..lol

    I made sure to say rootmaster 800 evo in my email to avoid that confusion :wacky:
    I am quite interested to find out whether I've been told the truth or not.

    Okay. I got a simply reply back from Ashdown that just said, "we have stock." So uhh... I don't know what to think.

    I just got the following email message from a MF representative.....

    My order is still in place and I'm reluctant to ask them to cancel. If they truly can't get them, I feel it's a task that they should do proactively on their part. The way this whole thing has been handled leaves me unsure as to what to actually believe. I've been told at least three times that an amp would be shipping to me the next day. Of course, it never happened. Thoughts?

    I emailed customer service two days ago, and they told me my order would be shipping at some point this week. I don't think it's possible to get any real definite information. I'm going to buy an RM 500 locally if this amp doesn't ship. This is my first time ordering from MF and it may be my last.

    I tried to see if they would give me the RM-500 EVO for half off. They wouldn't do it not even for what I paid on the current order. Full price they said....

    Well good. I'll wait for them to contact me but at least we know now it was all BS and can put that money to a different amp. What a waste of time.

    That's where my head is at as well. I questioned my stamina earlier in this thread. It's bottoming out..... LOL!

    I don't see a point now in keeping the order. Yeah, it was presented as a good deal but they can't deliver. Oh well.

    If what I am being told now is accurate, I agree with you! But, is it accurate? I mean, you yourself just got a back order notification. I've gotten one as well as been told various answers by different representatives. It's really hard to make sense of the whole thing. I have my suspicions but even those may not be accurate.

    My amp situation is solid right now. I didn't need the amp nor did I really need the 500 watt version. Would I have taken the 500 watt head if they had agreed to half off? Absolutely! 500 watt at $349.99? I'm not sure. I can wait a few more days but I think I'm done on or before the 20th of January....

    They haven't charged my credit card - usually they do that when the item ships. I figure to just leave the order in place and see what happens.

    Well they charged me and can't deliver so for me it's time to go elsewhere.

    Well I hope those of you who are holding out hope receive what your ordered. I cancelled and am going to order a amp from Sweetwater. I haven't dealt with MF in some years after using Sweetwater and doubt I will again. Even if a "good deal" like this pops up. Best of luck.
