If you purchased the T3's from L&M in Canada within the past 30 days, they will give you the new price :)

Really? I think whether you buy through a retail store or directly from Moog... if you buy a Taurus new and yours is one of those first 250 units, you should have gotten the discount regardless. (Mine is #0130)
Then, the Canadian distributor, SF Marketing, seems to be potentially pocketing an extra $20,000 for their supply of them.

>>I'm in Canada so this only applies in my case with the specific store and distributor....

I didn't get in on the first 250 discounted units from Moog, but, I did place the order early through the L&M music store before they knew the final price from the distributor. The distributor placed the order with Moog and I picked them up from the L&M music store last Month.

The price was recently adjusted down by L&M...I don't know the reason for the adjustment, possibly the US exchange?

The distributor got a batch of low S/N units because they ordered early for their stock and their early commitment entitles them to the Moog 250 unit discount...whether they pass that on to the retailer, or me, is not my business ;) but I was happy that I caught the price decrease within the month

Anyway I'm happy....., just passing on info to those that purchased at the slightly higher price from L&M in Canada :)

I bought mine at Gordon Price / Mother's Music here in Winnipeg. To the best of my knowledge, no other Taurus' have come to Winnipeg... the only other store here big enough to carry Moog is L&M, and they have not sold any.)
And yes, it could very well have been to fluctuation in the dollar... I got a price of $2679Cdn. initially, but then when they arrived, it was suddenly down to $2249Cdn... which was roughly correct based on the $1995US price. Now, I hear McQuade's wants $2199Cdn. for one.

All things being equal, and though I'm more than bit displeased about not getting the discount, I couldn't be more happier with my Taurus'. They are without doubt my favorite piece of gear and playing them live through a PA is just so cool!!! : )

Quick question for the Canadians ordering direct, did that require a call? I tried to place an order online tonight and got a notice saying only orders for the states are accepted.

Thanks

Hey Tjodoin

Just order from Steve's Music or Long and McQuade Music in Ottawa...they may even have one in stock that you can try in the store!
