I was in Portland for a couple of days and got to spend some time in Control Voltage. Wow. Beautiful store in a great neighborhood (Gravy!!). I have never been to a store with such a complete selection of the latest gear. Besides all of the Eurorack stuff, they had the full DSI line, the full Elektron line, the Polyend SEQ, etc etc all on display and ready to mess around with. Great great store

Why is the accessibility of Euro modules so difficult in Europe, in Berlin to be more specific? Schneidersladen isn't really that well stocked. Thorman has a very selected amount. I guess its best if I buy them in the states and just travel with em overseas.....

I can confirm what Dan says however, we've now got a growing selection of Doepfer at Signal Sounds and I'm adding more every month

If there's a particular model you want to see in the store, just let me know

cheers

That definitely doesn't seem like a good situation, for Doepfer. The EMIS website gives the impression of a cottage industry, and that you can buy from there if you ask nicely and negotiate how you're going to pay... That doesn't work, for me.

Once the UK leaves the EU, things will get a lot more complicated too, so it would probably be a good idea for Doepfer to sort out distribution here before that happens.

FWIW, I did order a couple of Doepfer modules from Gear4music, and collected them from a local chemists, a couple of days later, so I nominate them for the list, for the UK.

I could also have got them from dv247 (which is really a German shop, with a UK branch), but I would have had to spend a day waiting in for UPS.

Just want to check in to heap some praise on Nerd Audio in Chicago. Great folks running that place. Worth the stop if you're traveling through (not far out of the way if you're coming in from O'Hare on public trans!)

Is the Missoula Modular website down for good?

I had literally just emailed Jim there about something being in stock and was just about to order and now the site goes down, and my emails get kicked back to me as undelivered.

:hmm:

Awave, Kieron and Louis are both easy to deal with, they keep a lot of the high end audio gear

Storedj is the only music store in Perth I will buy from now. Although they don't really stock much modular gear (they are expanding), they're staff are always friendly and they always offer instore discounts for items not on sale. I got Magneto for 15% off on Black Friday even though it wasn't on sale.

I had a play around at five g when I was there a few weeks ago. They pretty much have every module up on a few racks so that you can try them out.

Yep that's a fantastic shop, my favorite, but it was already listed on the first page of this topic :)

I buy most of my stuff from overseas which is sad, especially in July this year our wonderful government starts to tax us on overseas purchases by 10% (GST) on ANY purchase price & not just anything over $1000 like it is right now.
Has anyone living in Australia been charged gst by customs yet for overseas eurorack purchases?

I've been ordering stuff since July and have not had to pay gst so far. This includes my most recent purchase of just under $1000aud of modules, where Fedex even asked me to send them a copy of the invoice.

The law isn't too clear but it says companies that don't make above $75k aud of exports to australia don't have to register for gst. It's possible that you still won't get charged gst by customs for items purchased from small international merchants like eurorack stores.

Do you do Click & Collect delivery, e.g. via your ebay listings? Ebay says you do, but that appears to mean absolutely nothing. When I check with private sellers, for example, they almost always say they don't, and they had no idea it said that.

If you do offer Click & Collect, I'd recommend saying so, specifically, in each of your ebay listings, for that reason. It is a selling point, but eBay makes so many false claims about it, it no longer really means anything to have it shown in the postage options.

I got charged A$900 on a Eur5000 order from Schneidersladen in December. The value of the order may have attracted Customs' attention. I've made smaller orders from US and UK in the same period in the sub-A$1,000 range and have not (yet) been hit with Customs charges. Or it could have been the physical size that got their attention, as the order included a case.

EDIT: Fedex notified me of the charge and I paid the $900 to them rather than to Customs directly.

EDIT EDIT: +1 customer satisfaction vote for FoundSound and Tin Shed in Australia, Ctrl Mod in Brooklyn, Signal Sounds in UK and Animato in HK. All great to deal with by e-mail and, in the case of Ctrl Mod, FoundSound and Animato, also great, welcoming and generous people in person.

One of the gentlemen at Ctrl Mod in Brooklyn (whose name I've unfortunately forgotten) was incredibly generous with his time. I turned up at the store in early November with a scant amount of modular information gathered from youtube videos and he spent several hours with me guiding me through my first purchases. He was very much the complete opposite of the sort of snobbery I feared encountering in this relatively obscure area of music. Two thumbs up.

Just a rant but why aren’t more modules available on amazon?! I’m loaded up on all these damn gift cards and can’t find a single module I need on amazon. Seems like vintage king and perfect circuit list a few here and there but why not more of their stock?

I hope it stays that way. The boutique retailers are what sustains this endeavor/hobby.

Yea, I guess I can’t argue with that. It’s a real first world problem to not be able to find something to spend gift cards on. :hihi:

i have a similar dilemma. our academic program often has extra $$$ at the end of the fiscal year (in june) that has to be spent in certain ways. amazon is oddly one of the choices, and if they had modular stuff...

There actually is a bit of eurorack on Amazon. I guess it depends on what you're looking for.
