german music equipment shop (and website)

Recommended Posts

About two years ago someone told me about a German retailer of all things music technology related, apparently they sell things way cheaper than other shops/sites. Trouble is I've totally forgotten the name. Wanna buy a nice field recorder and I thought I might check the site before looking elsewhere.

 

Anybody happen to know the place I'm talking about?

They're good, I've never had any problems with them, but prices aren't as good as they were pre 2008 due to the weakening of the pound. Some UK shops (DV I think) will also price match them.

do they fuck - digital village are a bunch of rip off artitsts. wanted to get a dark energy - not only was it £30 odd quid more from Digital Village, they also wanted to charge me about £17 for the privilege of paying with paypal funds (had some in my account I needed to use), making the whole price nearly £50 more than the same product from thomann. thomann were more than happy to accept paypal at no extra cost, plus shipped it from germany free, plus give you a 3 year warranty. fuck digital village. fuck them up the ass.

Some things are cheaper from Digital Village, some things are cheaper from Thomann. The Dark Energy is a specialist product made in Germany, so I can see why that'd be a bit cheaper in Germany.

 

But taking another example, the AKG 702 headphones are almost 50 pounds cheaper on Digital Village:

The Akai MPC 1000 is 145 pounds cheaper on Digital Village:

It's always worth checking both sites.

honestly, the paypal thing has put me off DV for life - just the kind of snide, rip off trick typical in this country. oh you want to pay with paypal? that'll be extra. absolutely no reason for it at all, just a cheeky way to extract more cash from their customers. plus whenever i have used DV in the past, I have found their staff to be rude and off hand and generally not a pleasant experience to deal with. thomann gets my money every time.

 

i suspect there are DV employees in this thread :fear:

paypal takes a percentage of payment for a product . . international (non-US) purchase payments are 3.9% + a fixed fee. sounds like thomann was very kind to you.
