Salvation - recent user experiences?

Post by aside » Mon Oct 14, 2019 5:20 pm

Hi all,

Heard a couple of reports about Salvation being a bit off the grid lately for MTS work, some waiting months with no returned emails etc.

Anyone having any luck, what's the deal?

Thanks.
Salvation: Camerock, MarkUS, Dread Plate

I, too, was wondering about Motor City Mods. Have any of you guys ordered successfully from them? It looks like you don't need a donor module?

Forum member mattfig runs motorcitymods. He isn’t on here much anymore since the board isn’t that active.

Anyways, my last order with them was about two years ago. Motorcitymods is the American distributor of sorts for salvation. They basically handle all the dealing with customs and international shipping and communicating with salvation. Any updates come from motorcity.

Salvation has (or at least did when I ordered) donors on hand so I just ordered finished modules from motorcitymods. Salvation shipped them to motorcity and they turn around and send them to me.

If you have donors, you can ship them directly to salvation and save money that way. I never have as I’m not versed in international addresses and custom duties, etc.

I will add, there is a turn around time that is unavoidable whether ordering from motorcity or dealing with salvation directly or any modder for that matter. There is no inventory on hand and the work is started in the order the money is received. All work is custom done by hand.

The two remaining modders are just a one man shop that do mods in addition to other work. The turn around can be a month to two months depending on what is in line in front of the order.

I grew impatient with my order, but I have been spoiled with same day shipping, etc that the big box music stores all do. Mods are completely different.

Appreciate the response! I was curious because I have never ordered from them or Salvation. I did recently send a module to Rob at Jaded Faith. He was amazing and only took a week to complete my Mach X. He is absolutely top-notch!

Most of the mods I have, regardless of modder, I got off the classifieds here or an auction site or the fb page.

It’s more of a fishing trip, but I guess the thrill is in the hunt sometimes. Some mods I was glad I didn’t pay full price, while there were a few I would pay full price a second time without thinking twice.

Rob is top notch. He has done a lot of work for me on my Randall rm amps. The outcome was consistently stellar.

I haven't purchased Salvation in a few years but I understand he is quite busy with other production work but is still very much dedicated to MTS. Some missed responses have happened but he always gets back if you pester a bit. It's a totally custom piece made overseas bu one guy. It's understood that it takes up to a few months to get your biscuit.

All of my Salvation mods are the tits. Seriously good.

I have been waiting for my order for a year. Antonin is not responding to messages. If at all I get my modules, can I rejoice? I do not know...

A year is kind of unacceptable. I have these two emails. He also has facebook that he responds to.
