    I have some extra parts for fastening the Full Circle as I had shown above. I will look for them. I purchased the individual items from various sources including ebay and Amazon to put it all together. I can sell the setup for a nominal fee with USPS for USA delivery. Overseas would be at buyers expense. I think the total parts cost would be around $10 or less. Regards. If interested, PM me. Steve.
     
  2. Thanks for the advice, I was able to order two of them and get them shipped as a registered letter. Shipping ended up costing about ten percent of what the website quoted.
     
  3. Is anybody here hesitant to spring for an SLB 300 due to the fact that it has a digital/computational component? I tend to see progress and change as happening more quickly in this area than others. For instance, the David Gage travel bass will probably be perceived the same in 20 years as it is now. The same might even be said for the SLB-200, with the common Full Circle mod, due to how timeless and durable the piezo technology seems to have been over the years. But what if the next update, or the one after that, completely turns the digital element of the SLB300 into a dinosaur? I hesitate to drop 4K on something digital....even if it currently sounds amazing to my ears. It could be totally irrational.

    I don't know if it will become a dinosaur. It will still have the good ergonomics. Interestingly, the SLB100 is still more expensive than the 200 despite the reputation for chewing through batteries.

    But seriously,
    - you might be waiting to see if a SLB 300 LTD comes out.
    - or additional 'load your own modelling' / 'add player X or Y or Z sound' via SD card or USB connection

    I think return benefits will diminish with further additional features.

    For me it came down to a used 200 at a price I could afford. If I had the $$$$ to splash, I would go for the 300.

    I don't see it this way, especially the way in which the microphone "modelling" is incorporated into the SLB-300. It functions in a not overly "digital" way, and it absolutely brings some very interesting (and arguably superior) tonal options to the table.
