$699au is $734nz, so the real difference is only $66 .... really don't see that as a big deal at all. I can tell you that the RS guys will give you a bigger discount than $66 on an $800 purchase



Agreed about the difference in the RRP, but you can get em for $595 over there at the mo.

convert that to NZ $$ and hit Dave up for a discount and I think you will find you are still only looking at around $70 difference with the added bonus of on shore warranty back up

I wasn't thinking of importing one, just annoyed at the price difference. I can't see any reason Australian prices should be more than 20% cheaper than here.


NZ price NZ$799 inc GST (15%)
= NZ$ 694 (ex GST)
Convert to AUD @ $0.95 = AUD$659 ex GST (

Australian GST is 10% so the ex-GST price for MS-3 here in Australia is $635.
That makes the NZ price a princely sum of $24 more expensive than AU. A whopping 3.7% increase (seems reasonable to me)

What neither Rockshop or Roland have control over is how much the AU retailers choose to discount products. It's freakin mental over here. The tight margins these stores are operating on in Australia is ridiculous.... hence why smaller stores are falling over on a monthly basis.

I applaud Rockshop for advertising at what is (I believe) a very reasonable price for a killer product.

Of course you can ask for a discount and I'm sure they will put a smile on your face..

I'm surprised that these things can be kept a secret - with Boss being such a big company, I expected details to be leaked etc
