We tried to avoid it as long as we could but this weekend we will raise the price for our BeBop with 100 euro. This is partly to anticipate the higher tax rate that will be in effect Oct 1st this year. We have a waiting list for BeBop, so all new orders we receive will be delivered after Oct 1st. That’s why we have to raise the price in advance. By Oct 1st we will also have to raise our other prices. Another thing is that for years we haven’t raised prices and always took the extra cost, due to inflation and increased costs for raw materials, ourselves. We can’t keep on doing that, we have to calculate it into our prices. Since inflation is the bank’s hidden tax, it means that this 100 euro extra is mostly tax money. The basses we have in stock are still for sale for the old price.
