Pretty sad as it is THE super partner for MT brands in the us. It’s pretty much the only place I buy these days. If private equity does to it what it did to Guitar Center we are in deep shit. I used to buy a lot from GC but have not in several years, it is a shell of its former self. I’ll ask my sales rep what the deal is.

Yes I agree @GaryH , not good news for either Sweetwater or Music-Tribe.

I buy from Thomann. Their prices are cheaper that SW and they have stock on almost everything I've looked for.

I just got a new order from Sweetwater and noticed direct evidence of them going right down the tubes, the little packs of candy they always put in their orders was noticeably smaller than usual! That’s it for me and that place!

I considered doing so from the U.S. but tariff costs are 25% plus shipping costs +10% state tax now. Things have gotten too crazy.

You may want to consider becoming an importer of record and hiring a broker to help you with the proper import category.
