I shot Thomann an e mail this week telling them I'm interested in buying a Marshall 4x12 cabinet from them. OK €555 seems fair enough for a cabinet, so I ask them what the shipping would be from Germany to Malta. Yesterday I got a reply saying shipping is €950 Now thats alot of cash for something that weighs 37 kilos, last year I bought an Epiphone Les Paul and case, they charged €30 shipping.


At €950 for shipping I'm going to build my own 4x12 cab and make it look like a Marshall

WTF, I didn't read that closely because I just ignore numbers when I see '€,' but that's ridiculous. Ask them if it is being shipped via unicorn.

Thats what I'm going to do, I think that €150 will get me

2 side handles
4 meters of white piping
4 rubber feet
marshall logo
jack dish
speaker cloth
metal corners
vinyl covering

I'm going to skip out on the rubber wheels and the castor cups. This is going to be a bottom cab not an angled one

^ Just make sure you use good wood (not particle board,) and make sure to secure everything tightly with screws or bolts, and then glue... These are the most important things to your sound.

I would still put wheels on it unless you intend carrying it everywhere.

That can't be right. Malta is literally below Italy, with shipping costs of anything at €20 (as long as your order is above €25).

At 150 miles more for thirty five times the price is ridiculous.

I know you checked twice but surely that's not right. I understand Malta might pay a bit more for shipping but that's insane.

I added it to my basket and it told me I have free shipping on it. I'd expect extra costs for a 4x12 but it doesn't say anything about that anywhere.

Did you actually CALL or EMAIL Thomann, to see if it was an error in their system?

You mean one Marshall 4x12 speaker cabinet MR1960A which weighs a mere 36 kilos will cost me €950?


Are you sure about this? Is this the only way?

Then I got this e mail:


Hi there,

Yes, because of the weight the only way to ship to Malta would be via Airfrieght - hence the high shipping cost


Many Thanks

That Airfrieght something is the one at "fault" here. It might be the only company Thomann can use to ship to Malta, and it seems they are charging a bit too much =)
