you can do a musical hommage to El Pibe with your 2600.

I'm one of the few who was able to get Thomann to ship to the USA - no notice yet.

I know but I seem to remember that people were posting that they would not take orders for the 2600 from the USA.

Cool.

Weirdly their web page is not showing current stock and a 14+ week wait (like a preorder) which means no one outside of Europe can order it.

I had the chance to lock in a Korg 2600 reissue for January, but I now I feel even better about passing it up. I love this synth, but I don't know if I love it enough to drop $4k. I'm bummed Behringer's lacks a real spring and the speakers, but those are okay tradeoffs for me when we're talking about a difference of $3k+. Extremely excited to hear that they're starting to ship already!

Don't forget the unboxing vids too - I want to see this thing closeup and get reports of what the sliders are like to work with, etc.

I wonder what would happen if you VPN using a European server?

Tried that, doesn't work. When it comes time to calculate shipping cost to North America it won't let you pass that point. I think part of the problem is they aren't allowed to hold funds that they haven't charged VAT on which would be the case with
a foreign preorder.

I could have it shipped to a friend in the UK or Europe (Who wants to be my 2600 mule? Anyone? Anyone?) but then I'll end up paying shipping twice, VAT once, and get dinged for GST+duty when it enters Canada -- probably will double the price of the synth.

i think i would rather wait tbf , that is a whole load of mither and we still have to wait for shipment xxx to get here anyway, it'll likely hit worldwide all @ once come Jan / Feb

never an early adopter be.

if beta testers enjoy doing what they do then good luck to them.
i aint a beta tester. i want something to work straight out of the box.
if company X wants me to beta test anything then they can bloody well pay me.

To be fair, I was an early adopter of three of their synths, and they all turned out pretty good.

I was very early with the Bro-1 and it was unplayable out of the box - total disaster.

I was an unintentional beta tester for another company’s new product recently. On one hand it was a couple of weeks of frustration I could have done without. On the other hand after those couple of weeks when all the problems were finally sorted I still had the product before most people were getting their hands on it, and it’s been wonderful ever since.

Pros and cons.

the first is the last, or don't buy synths as first, let other do the job..

That's a good theory. Cept my source says a Blue Marvin Version for Behringer with the spring reverb was designed.

Not saying we will see that in reality, but passing on the info.

2600 is the third best seller at Thomann at the moment.
