    I'm thinking of getting this pedal some time soon, but I'm having a hell of a time finding it. I can only find a few US sites that offer it, and to be honest I'd rather get it from a UK site, unless there's a massive price difference (they seem to convert prices just by swapping the signs). To any UK TBers that have one, where did you get it from? I vaguely remember one site that sold it, but at about £250 for the privilege. I've looked on eBay.co.uk, and there's no sign of it there either.

    I have a Geddy Lee, I'm assuming it will work well with that as with the vintage Fenders, yeah?

    They are mostly sold direct from www.sadowsky.com, but if you find a Metro dealer I imagine they might have one. I'm pretty sure I've heard of a Metro dealer in London if nowhere else.

    It'll sound great with your geddy.

    The Sadowsky pre works well with many kinds of basses, especially anything that looks like a Fender. I prefer a 3-band preamp with a J-bass, but that's just me.

    Ah, thanks, that's where I'd seen it before. What annoys me is that I remember seeing for ~$250, but now they want that in £...
