Yeah be patient international shipment is never quick unless you pay an arm and a leg in shipping.

My Mamba SE took 20 days to get from Anthony to me and I know LunatiBSW has his module in limbo here in states as well and I believe his left our customs after my mamba and he still has yet to get his delivered. USPS really needs to have a better tracking system for international shipping.

FYI from what I've seen on international amp sales (i.e. Ceriatone) the shipping can take like 3 to 6 weeks, unless you pay the extra money for air. Customs is always a wild card. I bought a module from Canada and it was shipped quickly, but it took almost four weeks to get here. That meant 3 to 4 days to get to the border, and 3 days to get to me via USPS. The rest of the time sitting in customs.

This is why I don't do international purchases or sales.

USPS priority mail 6 to ten business days is only to the country of origin. Once there customs gets it and as Julia said it can be a crap shoot, then it goes to you. Tony from Salvation put out an email to his customers stating that some customs stuff had changed and it can almost double the shipping time over the pond. I got my stuff from him in about 4 weeks, so you could be waiting up to two months. I say be patient. I've never seen an amp make it through customs and to someone's house in less than 3 weeks.

Peace, Joshua

It really depnds on how you ship it....if you use ems it will get there in 3 weeks max...tracking is good up to the point of delivery to the individual...and it costs about 2 - 2 1/2 times as much as shipping in the states..for example...a module shipped/insured for $400 in teh conus is around $18...most places overseas the cost is between $40$45.....you can ship 1st class internation for just alittle more than here in teh states but no tracking is provided and it takes a few weeks longer....I have shipped about a hlf dozen items abroad recently and the longest it took was 12 days and that was with 1st class shipping,the buyer didnt want to pay more for ems,which was fine with me,I just explained to him it would take longer and no tracking and he was ok with it...anyways....If the item was shipped in a timely manner after payment you should have it in 4 weeks tops..otherwise your seller probably shipped it later than was stated or there is a slightly off chance that it is lost...really hope this works out...seems that sticky situations always follow certain sellers.....Good luck....

Now not from US but Japan, I've seen tracked packages held 2 weeks in retention by customs

not to mention status updates being as slow as a snail,
I've also seen trackingnumbers put into systems AFTER I recieved the package

I live in west Australia with initials W.A. It's a long standing joke in this place it stands for Wait Awhile. You get used to long long waits for gear in this corner of the planet.

Man...I haven't heard anything from you since the beggining of august so I assumed you'd gotten it by now. Give it two more weeks and if it hasn't shown by then we'll work something out. I know this doesn't help, but I have two packages sent from within the states, pretty close to where I live that were sent monday and still have not arrived and a clerk where I work sent a set of important contracts from North Carolina to Tennessee 2 weeks ago and they never arrived. I could walk that distance in two weeks and I've had two heart attacks and back surgery. I'll shoot you an e-mail today and we can try to figure something out in the event that the amp doesn't show.

OK, Matt, I hope it will show up eventually, because you know I want the amp, not the money back.
