I did, but at over £40 a pack that's going to cost me about £60 more than Jewsons.
I can be patient for that much.

Well Jewsons have come through in the end with the cheapest price and by far the best service. I can wait a few days for them to get it in stock for that kind of response. :thumbup:

I gather there's a national shortage of RW3 at the moment! :o

It's a knock on effect of the SOS regulars recommending acoustic treatment as the first step too a good recording room. If we'd suggested a good coffee machine I wonder if there'd be a shortage of Tassimo pods? :D

:lol: I know... I'm trying to secure a few packs myself at the moment and am having trouble finding someone that genuinely does have it in stock and doesn't require me to buy an entire pallet load!

I recommend Jewsons! :D

Maybe we should have put in a bulk order for SOS forumites?

There's definitely been some sort of issue going on for a while, Jewsons were struggling to get hold of any at all when I needed an extra couple of packs a few months ago.

Oh nice to see a very old thread of mine resurrected!

In the end, fwiw, I have in years since done much as Drew and ordered them in through builder's merchant (Rembrand did better than Jewson in the end, if anyone has one nearby). But it's always a special order.

Either way even for a single pack it was way less than studiospares.
