Shipping a tube amp from Canada to Germany.
posted by molecicco to travel & transportation (4 answers total)
Has anyone here ever shipped a tube amp? Recommendations/advice? I have a beautiful, well-maintained 1970's MesaBoogie head and would like to bring it to Germany instead of selling it back home. It came with a very nice flight case, so it should be safe - but I wonder if the tubes are likely to break if it is treated rough?
Is it possible to send it as 'Fragile'? And who would you recommend shipping with? It's going from Toronto to Berlin.
Additionally, should I change the power supply once I get it here, or is it safe just to use a regular converter (shape, not voltage converter)?
