Mammoth Electronics - Pre-Tariff Sale on 3PDT Pro Switches
« on: July 23, 2018, 04:48:29 PM »
I was wondering when / how / and if tariffs would affect the pedal industry and community.

I just got an email from Mammoth that their Pro 3pdt switches are on sale for 2.50 each. The email said that they are going to have increase their prices on a few of their items including these switches because of the tariffs. Nothing saying how much they will go up, but 2.50 is a good deal, might not want to pass that up.

Their website is acting really wonky and itís hard to actually get an order through. I just kept trying and it eventually worked.

Some great info about it can be found here:  https://money.cnn.com/2018/06/14/news/economy/trump-china-tariffs/index.html
One thing I found interesting was this statement:  "American companies will be allowed to apply for an exemption from the tariff." How many do you think will actually apply for exemption, get it, but not pass on the savings? This is a classic move. "We absolutely must jack up our prices because of "X" excuse".

"However, when you start noticing a hum on the tonal rendition of your play, then you know there is a need to change the pickup."

I wondered the same.  Seems like it could be a handy bandwagon to jump on.  :(
