Balanced tilter substitute?

(1/2) > >>

Mario Roman:
Hi All,

I was ready to purchase a pair of balanced tilters until I found out that it would be $120.00 to ship them to the states. I'm getting reading to place and order for a pair of Danley SM96's and thought it would be nice to finally be able to aim my FOH cabs at their intended audience. Does anyone know if there is a U.S. distributor for these? I've googled it to no avail. If not can anyone suggest a similar product that may cost less to obtain. I love the design of the balanced tilter but can't stomach the fact that it'd cost me almost a third of the price of the product just to get it shipped here. Thanks to all.

Bennett Prescott:
You might ask Nimrod Webber, since they're his design and he has them made to spec in Israel, AFAIK.

Steve Hurt:
From what you said (120 being a third of the cost) it sounds like they are quite a bit cheaper now than they were when I bought them.

I have no regrets though, they work great!

Jay Barracato:
Even if there was a distributor, the cost of shipping would still be rolled into the total cost.

They work great. I have no problem with the price I paid given the design,workmanship, and materials. The only other options I have seen that would allow the same flexibility in aiming involves truss and cable.

A little steeper price than I would like, but everything else Jay said is right on the money.  I had mine shipped via slow-boat-to-China rate, and it got here in less than a week - 2 days, IIRC. 
The other thing about the cost was it was a small production run, and Nimrod had to amortize the setup/tooling into a relatively few pieces.  I think Nimrod did a phenominal job - design and quality production for a reasonable price.  Would I like to pay less?
