    Carmakers can't get chips, either. New car lots are empty.
    Hope it gets better for you soon, Tavo.

    Who didn't see this coming. Food shortages next in line.

    Dang Tavo! Sorry to hear that. I can emphasize with you in that we finally pulled the plug on touring after trying to wait this thing out. I hope you navigate safely to shore with what you can produce and sell. I was hoping to pick up a Brain in the near future but I’m actually going to have to sell off some things as it is. Good luck man.

    Tavo,
    I'm feeling it too. I've had 25 speakers, amps, mixers, L-Pads, etc. on order and paid for since the 3rd week of August and it's all still on back order. So I have a job and can't do it. I feel your pain buddy.
    I bought a gallon of paint and a brush from Sherwin-Williams and paid $52 for it. The bill had a 4% supply chain surcharge on it - unbelievable.

    I ordered a Quilter Superblock US that was to ship October 5, a date that has been pushed back 3 times now to November 5. It's probably sitting on a container ship somewhere off the coast of California.

    The global supply chain was cheaply built, and we're all paying for it now.

    The question I have is why is there such a hold up on unloading ships on the West Coast?
    Who's dragging their feet and why?

    its everywhere, work is constantly getting our stock shipments pushed back or even pushed of cargo ships that were booked already booked on.

    Shipping to Australia isn't a priority so have to get the ships when we can.

    Airfreight is back to somewhat reliable now but i can't air freight in a set of 30 Tonne track chains and sell them for our retail price and that's if i can get the stock.

    It's not a who so much as a multiple variables at play in a horrific manner. There's a labor shortage stacked onto an increased demand for goods (over services) and likely some miscalculations on the parts of all the entities that rely on the shipping industry. There's more goods coming in and fewer hands on deck to process/transport them.

    If only we could bottle neck live music in a similar fashion and drive up the performance fees for musicians ... ah, to dream.

    They'll just use canned (or bottled) music then.

    And if we can get shipped from overseas, it'll reside in a port waiting to dock :).

    But we both digress. Let's send positive vibes for @TV the Wired Turtle to sell a bunch o' pedals and keep that shop thriving!

    Such a cool color combo. Leave it to Nocturne to think outside the box and make our boards look look great.

    Bummer about the FV-1 shortage. Maybe somehow Santa will come early for you this year so you can put out some more.

    Florida announced that they would take all the ships and unload them and get the items out for delivery. I honestly think all the ships should fuel up and make the trip. Yea it would increase shipping costs a bit but you know what they are already jacking the prices up might as well get a product along with the price hike.
