Start adding stuff to your cart and go to checkout to get the carriage.

shipping says... Shipping (All Countries Standard 7 to 16 days) $1.26

That doesn't seem right! lol that is very fair!

Asian shipping is often cheaper than national shipping here in Denmark! I have seen mail from danish firms printed far away and sent back to Denmark to save money on stamps. Seems odd to receive mail from a company next door with an asian stamp!

Yeah i just posted an order last night! but being impatient i just clicked on stomp switches, went to cart and then confirmed the order. i then realised.....

"crap i should've ordered pots as well! :slap: lol

But shipping is so damn cheap it doesn't really matter! not like some places where shipping could be 10-20! so will prob just place another order later.

I think I will definitely have to order a few bits and pieces. I browsed the Tayda site last year and liked the prices but figured shipping would be prohibitive so never bothered to order anything.

Did anyone try their 3PDTs yet?
How's the quality of their Alpha pots? They're different than the ones being sold on pedal parts sites.

I just placed an order. It seems the shippingprice is gone up a bit. I order a bunch of stuff and the shipping was 21$ or so. Not expensive in any way, but not crazy cheap anymore. 3pdt was 2.99$ and the price doesn't go down with a large order. Still half price compared to banzaimusic.com

But it's from Thailand so only time will tell if I'm lucky enough to avoid the import tax. I should have made several small orders instead :hmmm:

Can confirm they are EXTREMELY similar to the switches I have bought from pedalpartsplus. It is a killer deal. I bought several dozen of my wish list of ic's also from Tayda and all seems well. Good source if you can wait 3 weeks. I will now buy switches and ic's and leds from Tayda.

I would still buy box caps from mouser and metal film resistors and ceramic caps from ebay seller. I also always find Pedalpartsplus to be the best source for BB enclosures. Culturejam is the source for vero boards on the web to me. I like his knobs, sockets,diodes, transistors too.

I brought 14 pots, 50 caps, 10 fets, 10 bezels and a couple of toggle switches and postage to England came to $2.88. The parts took seven working days to turn up and the parts are good quality. Good stuff.
