    forget about internet dealers in the uk it would still be twice as cheap to buy from an american dealer, ship it to the uk and pay taxes than it would be to buy in the uk. eg. the gk 700rb-II is available from www.music123.com for $599.99 shipping to the uk will be no more than $100 and taxes and duties no more than $150 that equals $850 (€690 or £465) but dont forget a power converter maybe another $50 incl all the above so the total maybe more like £480. still a lot cheaper than the RRP of about £650 i think. alternatively you could look at www.thomann.de the have gk heads and cabs too but are a bit more expensive than music123. shipping is pretty reasonable though from germany.

    daniel seen as though you have replied to this thread can i ask you why it is so much more expensive to get a gk amp in europe. like i can understand that a different power source has to be put in but still there is €130 difference in the and that even includes duties and taxes thats a big difference.
