[hardware] [b-stock]
Looking for a cheap amp sim in a pedal?
Thomann has the Harley Benton California TrueTone and Harley Benton California TrueTone in b-stock right now, won't last long at €24,9 (price may vary a little in your country).
IIRC they're the Joyo pedals, rebranded.
Said to be great for the price, and I never found a cheaper way to get 'em (except used).
They rarely surface in b-stock.

There were a load of different types of Harley Benton pedals etc. when I looked.

Harley Benton Vintage Overdrive €30

Harley Benton Ultimate Drive €30

Harley Benton British TrueTone €30

Harley Benton California TrueTone €30

Harley Benton Dynamic Compressor €30

Harley Benton Extreme Metal €30

Harley Benton AC TrueTone €30

More stuff at this link if it works: (search = Harley Benton pedal)

The €30 price probably includes evil taxes for my region.

I think you misunderstood, the €24.9 price is for b-stock.

OK. B-Stock. Is there a massive difference between €24.9 and €30 (which may be cheaper in your region)?

..and the b-stock California is gone already. No surprise to me, at all.

Not sure if I understand what you're asking.
OK these pedals are cheap anyway, but this is the cheapest way to get them I know of (unless you find a, even cheaper used one). An opportunity that obviously won't last long.

UVI has just launched Vintage Vault 3 which adds FM Suite, RX P10, PX V8, String Machines 2, USQ-1 and UVX670 to the Vintage Vault bundle plus a whole new set of 4 instruments called JP Legacy which is long awaited Jupiters and Junos. Finally a Jupiter 4 instrument to play with :)

RRP 599 Euros, intro price 399 Euros, upgrades may differ based on what you own, but I can get it for 199 Euros.

Looks like the intro prices are up until the end of January.

Check the vouchers in your account - that's where upgrade discounts beyond the €199 for people who've bought some of the expansions already are lurking.

Yes, already have an 80 euro rewards voucher that expires end of January. It's cool that should be able to upgrade for roughly £100 and gain a whole load of fun new stuff to play with.

Not that I'm anywhere further on from scratching the surface on VV2 and Falcon that I bought a few months ago. There's a lot to explore.

Edit: Just now been emailed a further 30 Euros off voucher because I already owned the Prophecy 10 library. Nice. At this rate they'll be paying me to take VV3 off their hands. And I will, because I'm nice like that.

B-stock is a bit hit and miss. I had an outstanding experience with a pair of Audeze b-stock headphones and a massive disappointment with a Roli b-stock item.

Were you able to get the Roli exchanged or refunded? They have had issues with dodgy sensors IME, which meant replacement. But they weren't B-stock items, so there was no issue getting them exchanged.

Yes, I got it refunded. When you buy b-stock it comes with the same return policy. The unit they sent me was completely beaten up. Most of the used stuff I ever bought was in much better shape. Audeze b-stock items I can recommend (they have regular b-stock sales). The headphones they sent me were indistinguishable from new ones.

I had a Kore like that: not totally beaten up but used enough in-store or by someone who managed to knacker it before the return period expired to have a button fail. So that went back.

Did they just email you on their own? I own everything except 3 libraries and it’s still showing me an upgrade price of $199
