IF you bought from us earlier..

.. you just had 16% VAT and perhaps much bettter prices? How lucky you are! But if you buy now, you pay the VAT to your own country and you will get the first issue of our

STECKBLATT (21.1) added to every order you made as long as stock lasts. Merry Christmas and happy new year, or .. fröhliche Flügelfigurenfesttage zum Jahresende, wie die Heiden vielleicht zu sagen pflegen?

Das STECKBLATT 21.2 liegt dann irgendwann ab März 2021 in jedem Paket. Wir freuen uns schon… äh .. STECKBLATT 21.2 will be included with  every delivery in march2021 somehow… we’re looking forward!!

Sorry, we`re Europe now!

If you are buying at SchneidersLaden from other european countries, you could be disappointed coming back soon finding higher prices, now. But .. it is not us making more money, it is the tax dept of the (your) country where the goods are going to, where we have to pay the VAT to – logically – with the VAT-%% of your country. Sorry.

We did just hit the offset for a few european countries, some others could follow still going with german VAT now,  you will find out at the beginning of the ordering  process / price check.. This is Europe and it’s ok, thank you for understanding.

join the Gedenktafel Release!

Morgen, am 4.12.2020 inmitten von Corona-Wirren wird Bernd Kistenmacher die von Hans Zimmer und ihm initiierte Gedenktafel für das einstmalige Electronic Beat Studio in Berlin Wilmersdorf feierlich der “Öffentlichkeit” übergeben. Immerhin 60 Personen dürfen teilnehmen, es wird aber dringend um Anmeldung per Mail bei contact@berndkistenmacher.com gebeten.
Hans Zimmer kommt aus nachvollziehbaren Gründen leider nicht persönlich, weitere Informationen zu dem “Event” stehen z.B. hier (Klick!). Wer nicht dabei sein kann oder möchte, kann sich später das Video anschauen, der gesamte Ablauf wird aufgezeichnet. [Freitag, 4. Dezember, 14 Uhr, Vorplatz der Nelson-Mandela-Schule in der Pfalzburger Straße 30, Berlin]

SuperBooth21 stands fixed!

Especially all “rooms” of the wonderful Bungalowdorf (also known as Huettendorf) are booked fix now for SUPERBOOTH21 (already!).
An interesting community including Doepfer, E-RM and Vermona confirmed to make this new spot an attractive goal (.. not to talk about a hotspot here and nowadays!) for all visitors of next years spring times highlight probably .. and hopefully for all of us.
So our idea to let you have a smart walk in the park while checking out all news and products for electronic musicians has made a big step further to become concrete.

Please do not miss to see this vision of misusing the place for “just” sleeping an living made for the SUPERBOOTH19 as it really happened. So, for obvious reasons, this video is not addressing our hygiene concept which we will have in place, but it seems to be perfect to promote the planned use for product exhibitions and presentations and concerts over the days of SUPERBOOTH21 now:

For your safety as for ours..

.. we have to change a few things back to “normal” as already experienced during the (first) corona Lockdown in spring time  this year:

Within this week we will unfortunately have to close the little pickup counter in our stockroom at Ritterstraße again. From now on we kindly ask you to order online or over the phone again and – at least if you are from Berlin or around – we will send it over to you for free.

For rather complex support inquiries ..

.. personal visits and auditions in our showroom at the Kottbusser Tor will stay possible (for now), but on appointment only with one of our dear team members. Please accept that we will have to force you to follow some hygiene rules before playing around on all our knobs and buttons. Buying things or pickups from Kotti will not be possible, just repairs and returns can be handled directly here.

In addition we will expand the phone support time to be available for you easier as soon as all internal changes could have been realised successfully.
We also work on a digital support channel to share and let you see, what we are showing you inside our beloved showroom.. soon.

So far?
Stay healthy and safe, please, dont be frustrated and have a good time whereever you are.

today and tomorrow ..

we will be engaged again on digitalanalog.org, an event for the next generation of musicians normally playing live in Munich’s Gasteig for two nights now, but .. due to corona also this is happening just online this year, so please .. do not miss the participation of Dieter Doepfer, Tom, Arno and Sasha for SchneidersLaden and plenty of others good old friends on their (virtual) F-KK stage and have a nice weekend. Here’s the full plan.
