Backorder - are they still in production?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I bought a Helix last year, and then decided to buy a Variax to go with it.

I put the order in back end of November and it's listed as "Waiting on Supplier" by the shop I bought it from - which took the amount in payment.
Looking around the net, it really does appear there aren't any in stock in the UK anywhere.

 

Hoping someone on here knows the answers to some of my questions:

1) Are they still in production?

2) Is there something afoot - nothing announced at NAMM2020 tho...

3) Is there going to be another Limited Edition run?

4) Should I just get my money back?

 

Thanks all!

Nobody knows. There have been multiple "Where are they?!?!" threads over the last several months from all over, including customers trying to buy from retailers here in the US. Explanations are likewise all over the map... everything from "shipping bottlenecks" (a tidy, official sounding explanation, but with no real definition thus it can't be argued), to tariffs, customs delays, sun spot activity, and the shrinking polar ice caps. The bull$hit will vary depending on whom you ask. Whatever you do, don't believe what your retailer is telling you... they haven't the faintest idea. Plus, they already have your money, so they don't care. They will feed you anything that sounds plausible so you'll get off the phone and out of their hair.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I did a quick search, but obviously hit up all the wrong words!

Sounds like a whole bunch of typical political bullcrap somewhere in the line.

 

Might change my order and get a SL3 instead to try and improve my keyboard skills.
