Dear Friends from America,

We're very sorry but The Submarine is not going to be available in the USA. We've had some very aggressive lawyers’ letters representing a company who have recently patented the method of using a two string pickup with an octave pedal. Quite how this is possible since the method has been around since at least the 1960s They are preventing us from doing business in the land of the free. 

This is very frustrating and disappointing, to say the least. As much for us as it is for you, believe me.

I know many of you had your heart set on The Submarine and were looking forward to buying one. We've been desperately looking for a way around this tricky situation, all to no avail. I can only offer you my sincerest apologies and wish you all the best in your musical experiments. Thank you so much for your support and kind messages over the last few months. Perhaps there will be a way to bring The Submarine to the shores of the USA in the future – it’s a place that means a great deal to me, and I would love to see it sail there one day. If you would like to hear of any developments...

If you are not in the USA and have ended up on this page in error, you can find our store here
