A lot of American music instrument manufacturers have had trouble with
importing things to Europe lately, because CE approvals can be an expensive
process. Most of these companies are small and have a tough time finding
the money to pay for emissions scans, the engineering talent to design
products that pass, and the resources to completely redo the thing so that
it can be exported to Europe. We had this problem with the Echoplex. Since
I'm not involved in that anymore, I don't know if they have actually passed
CE and are allowed to sell it in Europe yet. That's one reason why these
things are so expensive there. I'm not sure if Sam Ash or other American
distributors can sell overseas. They would probably get in trouble with the
manufacturers since they would be competing with European distributors.
