Schoeps From Europe
« on: November 07, 2022, 05:00:59 PM »
So, who has ordered Schoeps from Europe lately?  Who did you buy from and how was the experience?  I'm looking to buy a pair of Schoeps 41 caps.  I still have the one and have been looking for a second one for a while.  Figured I'd buy a matched pair and sell this single I have.

Thanks.

A lot of people run a race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself into exhausting pace, and then at the end, punish himself even more.

I have not pulled the trigger yet but I got quotes from funky-junk and pink noise.  I had a 3rd quote but they said there was no such thing as a matched pair so I deleted their message.  I was being quoted ~$1500 to the door for matched MK41s A-stock

Maybe try Thomann in Germany. They are a big outfit, so they usually have things in stock. Well packed and fast shipping. I have ordered quite a lot from them, although no Schoeps.

Note that the prices displayed are with VAT added; when you put them in your basket and select US shipping, the price will change to reflect no VAT. It looks like an MK41 is $635 at the moment.

Will they match a pair?

Is import duty added by customs? If yes, what's the cost?

I have no idea; send them an e-mail. They have always been responsive in my experience. If you send it through their UK webstore, it will go directly to an English speaker...

As for customs, I haven't looked in some time, but the personal exemption is pretty high and the first big chunk above that level is subject to a fairly modest duty. This would likely be duty-free, but definitely worth checking.

I think Digital Audio Service (from Hamburg, Germany) will sell matched pairs upon request. At least, they did so for my Gefells. Same price as Thomann's.

No problem asking about the Gefell caps.

Thanks to those who shared some info. 

I'm wondering what the duties will be for a pair of 41's.  Maybe 4v's.
