    I am interested in a Palomino V3212 combo. I see all are on backorder right now. I understand that the new batch will be coming from Vietnam. Any info would be great, thanks in advance.
    :jo.

    Considering the V32 normally sold for 599$ at GC I would be surprized if the 2x12 version was US made but I honestly dont know. Next time Im at GC im going to check it out. Bob

    99% sure they're Vietnam. I would not turn it down for that. My V32 head unit is Vietnam, my 5w V8 is St. Louis; the workmanship looks equal to me.
    Good luck

    Mine says Vietnam and I`ve had mine since last summer. My 2-12 V50 was made in St. Louis. That Polomino screams, don`t let the build location slow you down, you will be very happy. Did I mention that your ears might bleed!

    My Palomino V32 says USA. The newer V18, V33 series are Vietnam. The older Saint Louis Music ones are USA. Loud Technologies bought Crate from SLM and moved production overseas.....
