I've been browsing amps in the UK and have noticed that the British models are quite a bit cheaper than buying from Germany, around 10-30% up to a stunning 43% in one case


Marshall DSL50 head
UK £699
Germany £902 - 22% cheaper in the UK
Sweden £1143 - 39% cheaper in the UK

Orange Rocker 30 Combo
UK £725
Germany £811 - 12% cheaper in the UK
Sweden £836 - 13% cheaper in the UK


Randall RM100M (not very British but a price difference)
UK £749
Germany £1281 - 41% cheaper in the UK
Sweden £1109 - 32% cheaper in the UK


Vox AC50CP head
UK £499
Germany £782 - 36% cheaper in the UK
Sweden £880 - 43% cheaper in the UK



Kind of makes me GAS for a Marshall DSL or that VOX maybe. Randall was a big surprise too.
And the long term trend of the GBP is still falling so possibly it'll get even cheaper in the future.

That's a big difference. Here the DSL50 head can be found for 800euros. But there is a small catch - currently there is none available biggrin.gif

Wow those are huge prices differences also considering that gear is not not generally "cheap" in UK. I think some of these items shipped would still be cheaper then getting it in Germany or Sweden!

Definitly cheaper than Sweden. And with the low UK currency now also cheaper than Germany. Shipping from the UK is around £30, about twice compared to Germany but stil that's small potatoes in the bigger picture.

I'm waiting for the GBP to drop a little further before I place my order. It went up the past few days and I rather it didn't, have to wait for it to drop for a week or so. I want cheaper stuff or none at all! laugh.gif

guitar amp keyboard

But like someone said earlier in this thread if you look hard you can probably find them even cheaper.
