With the wait for TE sticks geting longer and longer… and longer ( I could go on) in the UK, I have decided to look into alternatives.
I am looking to buy a stick with a sanwa stick and sanwa or seimitsu (is that right lol) buttons. I would prefer it if the stick is not that small since I would rather have the extra surface area and weight. As far as art goes I would prefer to previde my own if possible in PSD format.
I am well aware of the benifit of a custom stick and the fact that it may well be no more expensive or even cheaper than a TE. However the hiccup that is stopping me going ahead with this is the fact that all the stick makers seem to be US based, meaning that import costs will probably make it too expensive for me.
What I am hoping to find is a UK based stick builder so I can avoid the shipping cost.
I am also interested in making my own sticks but my own craft skill are not up to the task of making my own case yet, so I am also interested in abtaining pre made cases without the sticks etc so I can begin making my own.
Having said all that if someone can give me a good deal on shipping costs I would be more than happy to place orders outside of the UK.
At this time my budgit is in the realms of 100 - 150 pounds.
Thanks for your time everyone
