I went to the site. I tried adding a Fender Strat to my cart and when I went to checkout it was blocked - they can't sell Fender in the US. But I put a Marshall SV20H in my cart and I apparently can have it at my door on Monday for $871 including shipping. Or I could pay Sweetwater $1499.
EU price fixing laws prevent UK (=non-EU) companies from charging higher prices to NON-EU customers?
besides, we have Friedman.
it does say this:
I wonder if the power trans' can be wired for US...
Has no one spotted the line under the 1959 price?
"The prices shown exclude VAT" (Value Added Tax).
In the UK that is 20%.
So $3,599 x 1.2 = $4,319
Is that still a good US price?
Interesting! I wonder how they can maintain a more than 70% markup, when this import option exists (nowadays, when people are used to shop globally)?
Would there be any customs fee? When I import directly from the US (to Sweden), I have to pay a fee that's outside the price including shipping that I get from the seller.
What would happen if you told e.g. Sweetwater that you have an offer for $871 for the exact same product (instead of $1499)?
I want to support local business (for service, etc., and to have a living community), but I don't accept too big price difference. I often ask if they can match web prices, and if they come close enough they get that deal.
For the 1959hw it's not a problem a quarter or a dime couldn't solve.
It applies to EU dealers like Music Store, Thomann, Session Music, ... no matter with whom they do business.
on the SV20 the back looks like this:
As i already said at the very beginning of the thread ...
According to the original post it would be!
But regardless, amps are duty-free in the US. You might have to pay a small customs brokerage fee to the courier, but that would be pretty negligible on an order this large. You'd also have to pay state sales tax (although you might get away with it tbh), but you'd have to pay that on a domestic order (e.g. Sweetwater) too.
It is directly related to pricing. It might not be "price fixing" in the strict sense, but it falls under the general category of "anticompetitive behaviour", which is likely to be considered by regulators.
If you have two geographically-restricted markets A and B, and a retailer in market B could offer a consumer in market A a lower price than anything they can buy from a retailer in market A, then the price for that consumer is artificially fixed at the lowest price a retailer in market A is willing to offer.
