The Keeley has been touted as a 'Flint Killer' - not sure I believe that, but it's $150 cheaper so more within my budget.

Keeping with my 'one-in one-out' policy, this means I'll have to sell off an Eminence RF10C and a TC Electronic HoF2...
In order to be a Flint Killer, it doesn't have to sound better, it just has to be half the price.

If I could find something 90% as good as the Flint for half the price, I'd take it in a heartbeat.

Looks like it takes up less room than the Flint too. Another tick in its favour.

until you have to plug cables into the sides...

looks pretty cool though, slightly cheaper than a Flint and it has presets.

How long are folks waiting on things coming from the USA these days?

I have something that has its last update as departing Tokyo on 2nd June and has yet to turn up. I’m guessing this is how it be now?

Does your tracking info look anything like this? If it does, then yes. APC are especially rubbish, but it seems most of the US freight companies are subcontracting out through them for NZ deliveries.

According to an interview on the radio last week, US shipping logistics is a shambles.
