Strymon won't ship to NZ. I've tried multiple times. Plenty going for $420-450 over the past year. Well worth it, in my mind.

Simple case of supply and command.

Go onto a site like prymaxe then ping their support and ask if they will ship you one, maybe they'll do it kinda off the books for you like they did with my MXR trem :mental:

420 + shipping + GST = 500+

I’ve tried buying Strymon pedals from Australia because of the better pricing but they are not allowed to ship outside of Australia even

You can try mine for a week or two if you like; after next weekend's gig.

I checked Strymon and Prymaxe and both allow shipping to NZ when placing orders through their websites. Total with shipping is USD$330 (plus the usual GST gamble). Still too spendy for me but thought I’d pass on the info. I have to sell off more gear before I can justify it to myself. :cry:

You won't pay GST unless it's over NZ$1000. My bike parts were NZ$950 and came straight through customs once I sent them the invoice (which was missing from the parcel, presumably removed during a previous trip through another country's border)

Actually not quite accurate!
If the company overseas that you buy from sells more than NZ $60,000 of product per year into NZ, then they have to register for GST and charge you as a buyer and then they pass it on to our Government. Ebay does this.

Correct, so if they don't charge it when you checkout you won't pay it, which is what I was alluding to above.

Yep, I’ve ordered a couple things from Prymaxe and they definitely don’t collect GST at checkout. Strymon doesn’t seem to either.
