Not sure about elsewhere in the world but they've lost their distributor here in the UK. Nobody's picked them up here so only option is importing from Thomann or US with crazy additional charges.
It's certainly a shame. I've been calling call, sending emails, ask my local music store about what's going on. No one seems to have answers. I notice that some models are available on the RT website for, what I assume is, direct purchase. However, the selection is very limited. Which leads me to speculate that once they are out of this supply, they may be done? I don't know for sure, but it sure seems bleak.What's the latest status on RT?
I am back to gigging next weekend. Just went to order my RT sticks, and I can't find them anywhere on the planet. Ugh.
In the meantime, if you are struggling finding your stick, there is a chance there is an equivalent at - Promark.
I managed to find a stick I wanted (5BX) in stock at Regal Tip. Hopefully it won't be a 6 month wait...and hopefully more of their models will be available again soon. There are several more models I want to try.
A rep for Regal Tip emailed me after my first order finally shipped. She told me that the reason it took so long was because they were sold out.Hmm, it's interesting to hear the different stories.
I originally reported that my dealer ordered a dozen pair and thought he received tracking info.
He wrote to me yesterday saying he takes it back. Order is now listed as back ordered with no ETA.
For now, I have switched over to Promark Jazz Nylons which are nearly identical in length, width, and weight to my RT Jazz Nylons.
