Maybe it would be cheaper to ship a batch of these to a US distributor?  Maybe there's enough people willing to preorder?

I've checked on the shipping cost and it is $25.oo from England to the US.  The shipping is for size, not weight. So... the stands are $20.oo and the shipping is $25.oo. Total $45.oo. If you buy 2 stands, or 3 stands, or however many you can fit in the box, the shipping price would be $25.oo for the box. We have a US warehouse in Michigan. They might have some.  Shipping prices might vary according to the method you use for shipping, but the $25.oo from England (FedEx) is the same as FedEx within the US. If someone wants to order a batch of them and send them off to others, let me know and I can arrange it and at the same time, let you know how many will go into one box.

I don't know the exact shipping price to Turkey, but it is less than to the US. If you are interested, let me know and I will find out the exact price.

It's unfortunate you use FedEX.  That would be a deal breaker for me.  FedEX will charge you $25 at your end (which of course you charge to your customer) then they will charge me another $25+ at my end brokerage, forwarding and handling.  I've been burnt by FedEX and UPS too many times.  Not sure how it is with them when receiving stuff from abroad in the States, but here in Canada the gouging is legendary.

Have you ever considered using Her Majesty's Post?

Never look at the conductor. You just encourage them.

Have you noticed, some folk never stick around to help tidy up after practice?

Hi Bill...   We have used the Royal Mail in the past and it costs about the same and sometimes more. And... it takes MUCH longer. If you want me to, I will go to the Post Office with a stand in a box and find out how much it would be to Canada. (you're not committed to buy. It's just for both of us to know how much it will cost and how long it will take) What's your postcode?       Regards...    Chip

US (and maybe CA) People:

I have several interested in a shipment of these (5). PM / email me asap and I'll add you to that list and I'll ship it to you at cost (stand + shipping to you).  I'm located in WV, will be travelling to NYC, Pittsburgh, Toronto, and Ottowa in the coming months. I could arrange to drop it off somewhere instead of shipping.

some o  the new  hamiltons ////MADE IN VIETNAM    OUTTA RECYCLED HELICOPTER and shell caseings !!!!!!!!!!!!



Yeah...but...

My several month old Hamilton's screw tighteners are already pretty well worn out and the cup suppoprt for the bell that's supposed to be adjustable never worked.

A large piece of crap, basically. I'm using it...using tape to set the lengths...but REALLY!!!

They probably sent you and Posaunus extra feet because they can't read very well.

Sorry...I get pissed off when things that I pay for don't work. If I played like they are now making trombone stands I'd be working as a fry cook now.

that wessex         looks  great  for a studio stand  ///even w shipping to us  its  a good valve
------
 when i  was  in  hs  --i asked  mr b   if there was any  broke drum gear  and   made a stand
 bach then  it was  k&m  w a  blach  wood ball w  wool felt  and  little  wools  on  the  things that stuck out to put
bell on  //thumb screw  //nickle   plated
--------
over time   dust and rust  well there  were  different   designs  of the   legs  and varnished  wood  for  bigger bones
  i  got jimmy archies   stand  and  couple mutes  w the  ring  mute holder
 ================
in this whole thread   //nothin //no  history //it never happened //no pics ///no licks
there is some real  junk out there
------------
 well what i  would   like  is  a  redo   of  one[or more ] of the  early  k&m
 a  lt  in  aluminum  maybe     how  about carbon fiber //titanium
 w some  bicycle  technology  
  come on  GET WITH IT  --A GRADE SCHOOL KID  COULD DESIGN A BETTER STAND  
somethin to think about  at  mickies while  droppin french fries in the  hot  oil

Unfortunately both Ottawa and Toronto are quite far from where I am.  Thanks for the offer though Matt.  I wonder if Chip was able to find out about the Royal Post?

 Pant Pant Pant Pant Pant Pant Pant Pant Pant Pant
chip  sent  5  stands  --and  just  unpacked  them---
sent  by  fedex  !!!!!!!!small  heavy   box------very  nice  --- super  gripper rubber  feet
very  strong  base  triangle   w  double chromed  legs  much  like  the  k&m
   spring loaded bell  rest   --------
---------------------------------------------
very  stable  and  can  have  a  smaller  or  wider  set up
---------------------------------------------
 cost on the  five  shipped was25x5   + 50
  so any  of you  with  trombone  studios  or   needs  can order  for  your  bone   buddies 
----------------
improvements  i would  make in design  --slightly larger  thumb  bolt  diameter on the adjustments and
   forget  the  light domed height  adjust  knob and just use  the  same  size thumb tightener
the  top  of  bottom section is  really  beefy  !!!!!!!!!!!
----------------------------
  i have  many new  newer and  vintage  stands 
---------------------------------------------------
of course i would  like  to see  lighter  weight stands  made  with  camera tripod materials
   my favorites   are  the  simple  vintage  stands  for  bach 6   2b  holton 65    martin committee
 besson   conn 24h//4h//12h 6h  la williams    and moderns  rath shires bac  edwards  straight small  bores
----------------
 i think  better  stands  can  be  made  --function  first --ergonomics  that  incorporate
    features  used  in  bicycle  construction     so  i feel  that  a bicycle  designer  actually 
       could  come up  with a great  stand  with  off shelf  designs such as  used on seatposts
         as  well  as  great  tube --and  probably  be  very  competitive  with  other  designs
            and  not  over engineered  or much higher  cost
 -----------------------------
 i  have   bought  many  cheep stands  for  ''student  use''  but  encourage the buyers  of such
   not  to consider  the lowest  price  but  long term  durability
--------------------------
  the  wessex   has  a few flaws  but  the basics  are  there  !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
