    I'm going to pop for the Barber Launch Pad and buy it online.

    It's not on musiciansfriend, zzounds.com, which are my usual online spots. Barber's web site does have a few online retailer listed, including musictoyz, tonetronix, and others, but I haven't heard much about them.

    Do you folks have any online site you'd recommend for Barber?

    Thanks!

    I got a Direct Drive from Musictoyz last week. Really fast shipping (like 2 days)and the same price as anywhere else......

    Bob at The Perfect Note is a long time dealer for Barber... http://www.tpngear.com/

    I bought my Klon through him and he's top notch to deal with...

    Although with Barber Pedals, I by directly from Dave through paypal... I feel it helps him be more profitable IMO... not to take away from the dealers...

    You can buy directly from barber online. Just follow the directions on their site. He sent me a personal confirmation e-mail, even after I didn't 100% follow the instructions.

    I'd put a WTB ad up in the Effects Emporium first. I'm sure you'd find one fairly fast and save yourself some money.

    I hope they're actually in stock.

    I was just going to recommend a search for them. I've never bought from them myself.

    why did you even ask if you were just gonna go with musictoyz?

    everyone gave you better alternatives to musictoyz IMO.

    musictoyz has a terrible customer service in my experience (taking weeks to get refunds, hanging up the phone mid-conversation) ... also ... they don't always have a good track of what's in stock or not ... and they have terrible spelling all over the site :roll.

    Tonefactor is great! Every transaction I've had with Brad and Jess has been easy and super quick.

    No big mystery. Someone responded said they had a fast turnaround with musictoyz, so I went with them. Sorry you had a bad experience; I hope I'm luckier.

    FWIW, I've had very good luck with zzounds.com several times. But they didn't have this pedal.

    I use Musictoyz all the time. No problems here.

    I had a problem with my Teese RMC3 when I got it, and Teddy shipped a new one out to me before I even shipped the broken one back. Excellent service.
