I might be interested. K & K pricing is $64 a piece for the 2912s.

I have Cinemags already and they are very good but wouldn't mind trying Lundahls.

Any idea of the price?

still no word back from K+K on a price break. from my search, this is the only place we can get them from :(

i'll call 'em tomorrow.

the number is right at 25 transformers for everyone.

If this is still happening... I'll go in for one (1) of the Lundahl's.

Thanks

gah! sorry everyone! i've been tremendously busy, and i seem to magically work ONLY when K+K audio is open.

i've left some messages, but never got a call back.

i'm waking up early tomorrow and going to try to talk to a person for once.

i believe the total number is at 26 or 28 now...i'm going to say the buy is for 30 for k+k, so there might be one or two left over if anyone changes their mind and wants one more.

tomorrow, details will be posted, barring some unspeakable disaster (phone cancelled, alarm doesn't go off, they're eating breakfast, etc).

I'm pretty sure I'm still in for two of them but would like a final price. I know for sure I'll at least get one, two if they cut a decent break. Let us know and thanks for doing the legwork!

ok! here we are!

good news and bad news!

GOOD:

the price break at an order of 25 is 20%!

so, original price: $64,
new price: $51.20!

that's not shabby!

the next price break would be at 50, and that would be 30% off. so, that's a whole 'nother 20, which probably won't happen.

to factor in the shipping from him to me ($1) and from me to you, ($5.25 for priority).

i'm not sure what tax will be, but it looks like it's $57.50 (plus tax) for the first one, then $52.25 for any past that, shipped to your door. it's at, if not more than, $10-15 off per transformer!

cool!

BAD NEWS:

he's completely backordered from the factory until mid/end april!!!

gahhh!

well, that'll give everyone a little time to get the funds here.

i'm going to go back through the pm's and everything, get the final list again, and get the exact amount per transformer for everyone, and send everyone a PM to confirm with details.

to get the funds to me, so i can get them to him: paypal is cool, but you'd have to add in that 3% (which looks like it's around $2). bummer, yeah. otherwise, pop a money order in the mail to me, and buy yourself a whopper or something!



ok. recap:

20% off, price is $57.50 + (*tax*) for the first + $52.25 for each additional, shipped to me then to you!

to be expected: transformers are backordered. everyone would expect to have them probably by the end of april / beginning of may, according to K&K.

payment: money order to yours truely (please, no personal checks, pleeease!!!), or paypal (add fees to your total)

ok.

that's it.

i'll get a list, and send out a batch of PM's.

so, i'm assuming that the buy is off. i've only had 1/2 of the people needed to confirm, and i sent a pm to everyone who said they wanted one, so i know that everyone got a message.

but, it was a nice try!

sorry that this didn't work out, everyone.

i really wanted some lundahls. eh, i'll just order two on my own!
