The next day when Ty basically confirmed on that Sonictalk episode, I breathed a sigh of relief knowing that I should be first on the order list and that I'll actually be able to afford it.
Well done --snooze and loose---already these are appearing on Yahoo Auctions Japan at double the retail price ----one sold one available from a new seller if someone is desperate

Like many, I'm on the wait list as well. I have the cash on hand so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

I was on the phone the day before the official launch. I’m in the first 10.

I’m more or less over it now. Thinking I could get a Xerxes or Super 6 and have cash left over.

Greetings Matthew! Thanks for starting this one! How did you order via L&M - still no sign of it on their web site and I first checked their site at 7am EST on Jan 10th. Likewise for Cosmo...

Anyways, I found out about this 2600 late- over a week after the initial announcement-, but somehow was able to lock down one of the alleged 20 for 100% certain.
Called the shop I always go to for all my synth needs who at that point had a list of 15+ at that point, but were only getting a guaranteed eight, seven of which I was told already had money down on them, and that if I could put the money down, I would be promised one. Needless to say, I've never whooped out my credit card fast enough. I feel very fortunate, especially considering how few Canada got and how late I found out about it. A 2600 has always been an absolute dream/pinnacle synth and this will be a lovely piece to help rebuild my synth collection, all of which I had to sell off a couple years ago. Really can't wait. And fwiw, while they wouldn't give me a date, when I asked "will it be sometime in late spring?" the guy said it'll be much sooner.
Sounds like it's meant to be yours! Which shop? Feel free to send me a PM if you don't want to say publicly.

Nicely done! I'm surprised it's still not listed as a product on any Canadian retailer web sites.

Maybe cause there's only apparently like 20 nation wide they just didn't see a point? How many retailers do we even have that would carry it? L&M, Moog Audio, and maybe Economik?

Hey - where did you hear that? Both my retailer here in Canada and a retail source I have in the states have said that they're expecting them mid February still.

March is generally what Sweetwater is saying. They tend to underpromise and overdeliver tho.

It’s unavailable if you try to order it though.

I received some good news today. I had made an attempt to order a 2600 through Musicians Friend in mid January and they told me they were completely out at the time. I got a call today and was informed there was a cancellation so I was finally able to place an order and mine is expected to ship this April! The interesting bit of information I received is they mentioned their "first batch" went out a couple of days ago and are getting a second batch in which those will ship out in April. This doesn't necessarily confirm anything, but I believe Korg Japan may have started production on another batch since initially it seemed as if all these companies were only getting one limited amount.

Congrats on getting on the list!

Also, we were told from the announcement that there would be two batches, with the first shipping mid February and the second in March - so it seems they are just delivering as scheduled.
