Is there likely to be a UK re-seller anytime soon or do I just take my chances on international mail and UK Customs?
I would take your chances and just get one, be prepared for a possible delay from China etc…import tax is about £35. Until they have a full working windows and Mac version plus online store I don’t think it would wise to get a distribution deal.
I am in the UK and got mine from Hong Kong. Import duties via DHL was £25.00 and it took about 2 weeks to arrive. My advice is just go ahead and get it, I had no problems and BB are pretty good at keeping you informed of order status, despatch, estimated arrival, etc.
Oh, and it’s a brilliant pedal, really adds to your playing!!
Got mine from Thomann in Germany no issues and arrived in 3 days…
