Pigini are the ones that make the best mics I have seen anywhere... well, actually it's HA Tools that makes it for them, they have the 10+8 system.

Wow that looks very cool (though I don't have any single clue how it works :D ).

PIGINI never told me they can do this. The page is in German so I guess that's the trick of the German PIGINI reseller?

1. It's deceptively simple, even to someone like me that has no electrical engineering background. If you search on Youtube for "how to make a condenser microphone", there are some very easy to understand videos. Easy enough to make me consider making my own DIY system one day. Packaging is the biggest challenge, the rest is fairly easy. :)

2. Well, it's Heinz Aumüller's design, I suspect he is the Pigini Germany distributor. He does have some explanation in English on his website, and the videos are pretty self-explanatory. I like his design very much, but it is very expensive. I figure that I could maybe make my own design for about 25-30% of his price.

Ah man, I'm really sorry about that. The good news is that when it does come in, you are going to LOVE it, so please try to stick it out. :)

Really weird.
The shop I bought mine from in The Netherlands got one for me to try in one week. I tried it and bought it and never looked back. Must be something "odd" with your importer.

I had earlier suggested that he try at another retailer, but there are ties of friendship and therefore some feelings of commitment. I personally feel it a bit of a mistake as I know of 3 others that ordered theirs and they are all happily playing now, each about a month after the wait. I'll be the first to say that this is in Canada, not the UK, but still. I think I even provided links with dealers that had it in stock some time back.

I'm checking with other retailers now.

From Liberty Bellows:

Thanks for writing. Sorry but they are backordered indefinitely. We have had a standing order for 12 months to no avail. If we get some in new or used, we'll let you know! Thanks, Mike

Somebody went a little crazy with the decorations:

I talked to three US accordion dealers today.
They said not to bother ordering from another dealer because Roland isn't fulfilling their orders, but the dealers don't know why. They never know on any given month if they'll receive what they ordered.

But they can sell me a nice 4xb right now. :)
