    Anyone up there feel like helping me out?

    Can't seem to get the EBS MicroDrive II down here, and getting quoted silly prices by Bass NW.

    ClubBass are doing them for $399 CDN plus taxes, but they won't ship to the US at EBS request. Anyone feel like ordering one on my behalf, then shipping it down here to me.

    Long shot I know, but I thought I'd put it out there...

    I'll let you know in a couple days if I can help you out or not. I don't think it'll be a problem.

    USD $421 at this store:

    Click on the link: "Basforstarkare, baseeffekter"

    Althought in Swedish, they will speak English. The pedal doesn't weigh much so shipping might not be too much.

    MontyP, thanks. Obviously I'll cover all your costs and throw something your way too for your time.

    bmc, I'd prefer to do it via ClubBass (cost is just under $300), but thanks very much for the link.

    I'm very glad to see that alex covered this. I really would have liked to have helped you out but I got very busy around the time I replied with work and exams and I didn't get back to you.
