yeah, i hope so too. someone needs to start selling cool gear here (not only pedals). the only "boutique" pedal builders here i think are TRex and i think Xotic effects? They went through the store "Bhargava's Music". Also I think, they're the only store who also carry EHX stuff. I have no clue how they are doing.
you should look into how Boss manage to keep their retail price relatively close to what they are available at in the States.
maybe tie up with a builder here? have a budget line? something along the lines of "Vexter" series?
