Where Did You Buy Your Sennheiser ME66??

I can almost predict "B & H" as the main answer, but being a NY resident I'd like to know if there are other quality dealers elsewhere, if you catch my drift. I can't seem to find many answers searching online, aside from a somewhat curious case & kit offer from saferseas.com. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I bought mine from ZGC. I'm in Vancouver. When I ordered it, I got the fasted shipping of almost any item I've ever ordered from the U.S. I believe they're in New Jersey.

I bought my Canon GL2 from Zotz Digital in Oregon (I think that is where they are.) They were very professional and had much more personal service than B&H. The camera was $10 more and it was worth it for the service and advice. They do carry the ME66.

Got mine from ZGC. I think they are still offering that free foam sock for the ME66.

Thanks; I checked ZGC but their website was last updated in April, and the now-defunct free windfoam offer is still hanging there (the offer ended May 15th, so I don't know what's going on with that). Too bad, since it's the kind of website deal I'm looking for.

I got mine from Zotz Digital and I'm all the way over here in New Zealand. ;) Brian was really helpful answering all the questions I had and it arrived in perfect condition, well packed and at a good price.

You can't go wrong with Zotz Digital. Give them a call, their service is excellent. On top of that they are one of the sponsers for this site. I have never purchased from ZGC before but based on a number of email correspondence they are very professional, courteous, and also willing to help out. They're also sponsers. Give either a try.

Don't be fooled by ZGC's web updating. They are pretty specific with what they have on their web site (they can get things not listed though), and prices in this industry don't fluctuate too often so there's little need to constantly update the site.

Yeah the windsock deal is still up because it's still in effect, I got mine a week ago as well. :)

I just got an E-mail from there about the ongoing windscreen deal (good "for another week or so"), so I guess I'll go with them. Thanks again, everyone. All excellent suggestions.

Just got an ME66 from ZOTZ along with a bunch of other stuff. It was $375, came with the foam wind sock, and free shipping. It was a big order & he cut me a deal so I'm not sure if the shipping & wind sock are always included.

Great to do business with a real person.

Thanks Brian

Heh all these ME66 purchases... I'm trying to lower the hiss with mine. I'm using a Canare XLR-RCA cable instead of paying a few hundred for an MA-X00... maybe that was a mistake?

Wow, ordered the ME66 from ZGC yesterday and within 24 hours it was at my door--with the windscreen too. Thanks, ZGC. :)
