Just bought some Hammond chokes from razzmatazz-it on eBay. They arrived 2 daoys later direct from Hammond in Basingstoke. :D

Thats good to know. I think you can order direct from Hammond though.

Bluebell Audio was always my Hammond supplier (before we fell out), and I read somewhere that Philip Ramsey was not trading anymore ?

Were sent next day delivery as well.

Just seems strange why not have their own UK eBay account. Must be a tax thing - might be moving hq because of Brexit.

As Bluebell doesn't exist any more, I tried these guys https://www.enrgtech.co.uk/ and it worked out well. Prices seemed good to me.

Only looking to post in this section did I discover this thread already existed so didn't try razzmatazz-it on ebay nor ordering direct.

Another option for Hammond with stock available showing which was helpful. Didn't get charged shipping for a small order which might have been a mistake but hey, I'll take it. Took about a week.

I know Philip Ramsey had been in poor health for some time and had been trying to keep afloat by selling off assets.

Don't know when he stopped trading.

Yeah, I knew he'd been poorly and your's and Nick's experience's came as a bit of a shock. Hope he's okay.

So do I, although he fell out with me I wish him no ill.

You can/could indeed order directly from Hammond. I ordered some bits over the phone, lady confirmed they were in stock, and I picked them up a few hours later.
