NAMM visit and Holiday Leave

Post by GeorgeG » 22 Jan 2018, 09:19

Just a quick mention to all Ozbass members that we will be attending NAMM this year and having a small break at the end of this, so we'll be closed for business from the 22 January till 13 February.
Any orders placed during this period will be processed and dispatched on 14 February.
We will have limited email access and will try to respond as quickly as possible.
We do apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Thanks you! :)

Thanks everyone for your good wishes. Really am looking forward to it. A lot of new products coming out of from some of our current suppliers but will also be checking our some new brands.......

Just some quick mentions:
Sadowsky will be launching their new METRO EXPRESS line - a cheaper line to the current Metros.
Dingwall - Sheldon Dingwall has got of a lot of nice new additions coming out with the NG3 and Combustion C3 - 3x pickup versions to the NG2 and standard Combustion.
Bergantino - launching the new HG410 - sealed 410 w/ 3x10 forward facing and 1x10 rear firing.
Genzler - slanted BA12-3 cab - slanted version of the standard BA12-3 and also launching the new Acoustic Array combos.

Possibly there might be some surprises as well.
BTW, I will be meeting with the bosses of Sire at another location where they will be showing us the newly released V3 and M2 models which are being priced at an even lower price point to the current Sires, so that will be interesting as well :)

@ Jimmy effected, will be in touch with you mate when I get back, the new Dingwall price list will be available by then and I'm sure the standard Combustions will still be routed for 3x pickup upgrades, they sent us some info on upgrade kits so I'll be meeting with Sheldon on Friday and will know more about it then.

@packrat - Sheldon Dingwall is definitely working on improving the wait times for all their models, he is looking at training more people and expanding the workshop. So hopefully it won't be long before we start seeing improvements in the build times to a more reasonable level.

I'm looking forward to your opinion of the HG410, George. I think I'll have to put my name down for one of them if it lives up to its promise.

Have a safe trip mate!
