:lol: good response. I feel for you. Any chance you can cancel your order before it's shipped, receive a full refund and then cop off Tutor?

I've never paid import duty on anything from MPC Stuff, albeit only pad sensors and a few buttons. Something to do with being identified by the sender as a gift? Possibly, im not sure.

But yes, UK and EU members should support Tutor's project if possible, and put the word out that pads/fat pads are available right here in blighty free of import duty.

Maybe some marketing or a site banner would help tutor, if that is permitted by the distribution deal. Even a presence on eBay UK would be cool.

Hi MPC tutor,

great site.

Do you have a site selling MPC thick pads compatible with the MPC 500? wont even ship the UK at all at the moment unless its >£150

or do you have any stock I could buy directly?
