The pricing is on it. Pro Net is actual price. There is no discount or manufacturers "suggested" retail price (MSRP). They set the price and thats it, so no one can get a bad deal... its only one deal.

Mesa would kick my dealer's arse if they knew he sold me my Road King II for $2349.00 plus tax, ordered in early 2008. That is a $400.00 savings.

aCk!!! Thfpppttt!!! :shock:

This is so weird.

In Canada its barter away on Mesa gear like any other music product. I have always gotten large discounts on any Boogie amp.

I also know some dealers in the US will discount a Mesa (or whatever) amp by writing on the sales slip that it was a floor model with a tolex rip etc. and has to be discounted. (Whether damaged or not).

In Canada having a fixed price like that dictated by the manufacturer with a threat of loss of franchaise is against the law.

There has to be the same laws in the USA.

The prices all seem to be a lot higher in Canada, so maybe that's why they can discount? Mark em up higher so they have room to move or something....

I think this goes back to the early days when you could only get a Boogie by ordering direct from Mesa. When they started getting dealerships, They still sold direct and didn't want conflicting prices as their dealer network was small. If you were a Mesa dealer wouldn't you want to keep saying that it's Mesa's fault you can't cut prices. I don't know what would be illegal about it but, it's a sweet deal for the retailers if they all stick together on it.

I think it's geared more towards not charging people more for the amp, not less. Obviously if a dealer wants to sell it for less, he can.

Am I wrong?

I was speaking of the early days of their business. You make a good point about dealers charging more because they have them in stock and customers wouldn't have to wait. In the early days you would have had to pay Mesa's price to order direct, no dickering there, hence dealers were not allowed to vary their prices. I have a clear memory of a dealer telling me that they weren't allowed to cut prices on Boogies. At this time the bulk of their business came from direct sales and Mesa didn't want to be undersold. I think it's reasonable to assume that Mesa didn't want their customers to be price gouged by greedy dealers as well so both answers are probably correct.
