    bajaao is selling the tri ac for 12500(i know it was for 11000 before but apparently the price has increased in USA so its increased here too, atleast thats what ashu told me)

    is it worth it?

    i have no one going to USA to get it for me for a long time(august, thats also not sure)

    how much will it cost to ship it from music123.com? and is it safe right now(in regard to the bankruptcy claim)?
    and will i have to pay customs also?

    ^^ That is a tad steep. Shipping it from abroad is a risky option cause u may not receive it. Plus the taxes are a bitch.

    Try the Tri AC. See if it suits u. Then decide if its worth the money.

    well of course u'll have to pay custom duty,

    u see there is a jugaad for everything in india, but these gora people know nothing of it


    so...........
    plz do not order it it is a risky option,
    well even if the company is bank rupt, it has to complete all its transactions till it is declared bankrupt officialy(but u won't go around suing that company in us courts)

    oh ya...wats the difference between the blue coloured ones and the black ones?

    the blue ones are the ones shown on bajaao and ishibashi and the black ones are shown on the american sites.

    The black one is the TRI-ac!
    It never came in Blue.

    Blue one is a different pedal called double drive.
    Thats not a sansamp, its a distortion/overdrive pedal but from the soundclips it does sound delicious.

    http://www.tech21nyc.com/triac.html This is Triac
    http://www.tech21nyc.com/double_drive3x.html This is double drive.




    PS: Dude, forget all this.
    Get Tech21 PSA-1. You will forget about GAS for a very very long time to come.

    PPS: Dont forget to check out the soundclips. That way you can decide whihc one you want.





    I dunno when I would be in Delhi. I guess in 2-3 months time.

    err...check this out. there was the same photo in bajaao website also.

    http://ishibashi.co.jp/webshop/amp-effect/effect/tech21/tri-ac.htm

    dude, the psa1 is WAY out of my budget. plus its not available here. and as i mentioned before, i can't get any stuff from abroad for quite some time now.

    dude, alpha1 are u based in bombay by any chance? because i'll be there between 16th and 23rd june.

    As far as I know, there is only one colour Tri AC. U may be confused with the Tri AC for bass.

    If u are going to Bombay, give Ashu a call, and ask him if u can try out the Tri AC. They usually let u try stuff out if u let them know in advance.
    U can also make use of their 15 day return policy. Buy it, and if u dont like it, send it back :beer:

    There are a couple of ppl in Delhi with Sansamps, they hang out on RSJ. U could try asking them too.

    Plus, if ur willing to wait till July end, I may release my line of Handmade Boutique pedals too ;)

    ^ does BAJAAO have a showroom or something in Mumbai ??? :think:

    Uh-oh!
    That IS Triac.
    and the color is black.

    Just that the lighting is not done properly, that the color appears to be bluish.


    Remember the triac has 5 knobs and one selecetor switch
    Whereas double drive has 6 knobs.


    I am in Pune.

    @ Double Click:

    Bass Tri AC?? thats the first time im hearing that. how do i know whether its a tri ac for bass or guitar??

    anyway now its on bajaao too, this blue colour is giving me the blues man hehe

    http://www.bajaao.com/tech-21-sansamp-triac-distortion-pedal-p-3710.html?manufacturers_id=66

    it says "Bajaao.com only accepts returns made within the first fourteen (14) days of shipment."

    does this mean 14 days after THEY've shipped?? which means, it takes 3-5 business days for an item to reach the destination, meaning if i order it on wednesday, it might arrive next wednesday, and if i ship it back on thursday, then it might reach bajaao NEXT thursday which will be more than 14 days after it has been shipped. right? so i'll get ****ed.

    and ya, who was the guy over here who ordered from bajaao and then ashu switched off his phone after the money was transferred. did the guy get his stuff finally?

    And DC who are you talking about man? on rsj forums? i do post there regularly, don't remember anyone from delhi mentioning anything about owning a sansamp.

    @raj.hendrix

    born2tab was the one who ordered... Or was it lefty... Anyway, I remember him saying he got his stuff.

    U better talk to ashu and confirm bout the returns policy. Y dont u just check it out while in Mumbai?

    I dont remember who has the sansamp... It was a long time ago.


    @alpha

    Yup. I've made a couple of clean boosts and overdrives. Now working on creating my own design for an overdrive pedal. If it sounds good, I may put it into production. ( all this EC shit I'm learning has to be used for something, plus I need the cash)

    Elaborate. Which circuits did you make? Where did you source parts from? Your fellow DIYer wants to know;)

    Damn, we need a dedicated DIY thread.

    If you can design your own pedal circuit surely you can make your own poweramp too B|
