After emailing to ask what was delaying my order, I got them to switch the cable for another one (longer, same price!) and the order was shipped right away.

Second time around I figured I would email first to make sure they had everything before ordering. I ordered a bunch of TT modules, but there were a couple I wanted which they didn't have listed on the site. Turns out they had them in stock. I had to wait a few days while their website team added them to the site so I could add them to the cart. At this point I'm waiting for that order to ship after pulling the trigger today...

Definitely not the smoothest process either time :/
Just went to order a 0-coast from Moog and they emailed me after saying they are out of stock - but they have a demo model for 10% off, so they refunded the difference and are shipping it tomorrow.

When ordering in Canada Moog has been the best of the bunch in my experience. They'll have to include stock info sometime this decade :bang:

I figured something must be up when my order from Saved by Technology had Long and McQuade price tags on them.

The linked letter says they will continue to carry Eurorack, so one can only hope.

It's the boutique version of L&M :hihi:

Long & McQuade now has a full line up of Intellijel and Mutable Instruments products on their website.

Is it expensive to have modules shipped from the US to Canada? I usually go to Montreal at least once a year but there do not appear to be many eurorack stores in Canada (brick and mortar or online). Moog Audio has a pretty decent supply but they don't carry everything (e.g. no SSF), hence why I'm asking.

Yeah, a lot of WMD/SSF but no SSF it seems. I'm looking for SSF Entity modules specifically and Moog told me they don't have it.

It can be. You have to pay shipping (in US dollars), import duties, and HST. Moog’s prices are competitive if they carry the module and it is in stock. If not, I usually suck it up and buy from Control (my favourite) or one of the other US dealers. I’ve had pretty good experiences with all of them.

It's not always that bad. For 1-2 module shipments from the US I've mostly escaped paying tax, and it's not like Moog doesn't charge tax (though free shipping and 5% off offset it). It depends on the modules, the size of the order and luck of escaping tax, and whether the US dealer insists on premium postal services, but overall it's often not too different ordering from US dealers vs. Moog.

As a Canadian I'm not sure I'd order from Control again. I paid $33 USD (their cheapest option) to ship one small module to Edmonton, and nine days later it says it's in Toronto.

Meanwhile, a module I bought from someone on the forum who lives in Florida arrived after only a week, and he only charged $10 USD for shipping.

I’m on the vintage synth one, but it doesn’t seem like a lot of eurorack gets traded there. Any others I should know about?

Axe and You Shall Receive in Brantford apparently carries WMD/SFF, a little bit of Tip Top and maybe others. Don't know about stock levels.

I've had only good experiences ordering from Detroit Modular. And duty (essentially just HST) is really hit and miss.

Tom Lee Music in Vancouver is apparently interested in getting more/back into eurorack and they're looking for a new synth specialist.

They're hoping to eventually have a filled Intellijel 7U case for demoing modules.

There's a new shop in Victoria BC, on Vancouver Island: Capital City Transistor & Valve.

The shop's located at 2808 Rock Bay Avenue. It also has an online presence at <https://www.cctv.fm>.

The shop will do repairs, custom builds and mods, circuit design and it also offers DIY workshops every so often. You can find kits and ready-built MI clones with attractive original panels.

No affiliation, just gratitude for the excellent advice and services I've received at the shop. Love that place...
