Hi Zero D

I've bought Tang Band from Strassacker (lautspecher.de) on several occasions.

Strassacker: Lautsprecher - Boxen - Selbstbau


They don't always carry the model you may be after but I got the models I wanted in good time.

As with so much in the UK I have more gripe with Parcel force than any supplier issues and can highly recommend the business.

There is a German and an Italian distributor in Europe. I had some dealings with the former a few years ago and found them helpful and knowledgeable.

These....
TB speaker | Loudspeaker freaks

Caution, do try to ensure that they have reasonable stock levels before ordering. They're not the most communicative unless they're doing somthing.

Speaking to Jerry at Falcon Acoustics a while back, you have to buy a whole container full at a time...and THEY get to choose what drivers go in it!!!. I guess the DIY demand in the UK or even most of Europe is not big enough to gamble thus.
Which make loudspeakerfreaks an extremely risky proposition.
Europe Audio - dreadful experience
Problem with Europe-audio, time for a warning?

I've bought twice from them with no issues. Did have fingers toes and nethers crossed or knotted for luck though. I believe they are better than they were. But, if you're not European and/or order something not in stock, expect it to take ages and don't expect updates until it's ready to be shipped.

@ drewan

I looked at Falcon Acoustics & several others in the UK before i posted, but as you know they don't sell them. Well, having to order a whole container with what they choose is a funny way of doing business ! I guess that's why no UK dealer is interested.

@ Jerms

Re Loudspeaker freaks - Europe-audio

Yes i had seen that thread about them/Him. You were lucky. I doubt if "He" buys a whole container though ?

you can get most of the good TB drivers from blue planet acoustic in Germany and their webshop at oaudio.de if you have questions, call them. Their sales manager is American so english shouldn't pose a problem.
