I'm in the same boat as you Jazlover.
I placed my order on June 8th and still waiting. They did email me to let me know about the price drop from $699.00 to $599.00.

It does sound like it should ship soon, but they are waiting on Korg.

My guess is that Korg may have had some manufacturing setbacks related to the earthquake, but I don't know the actual reason.

I hope you get yours soon,
Marty

Thanks for the confirmation. Sweetwater has been great with me, but I bought the Kronos elsewhere because I could get one a month earlier at a local store. This is good to know..... Anyone else?

I just received notice that my ORT has just shipped from Sweetwater. The website still says they are waiting for more, so there must have been only a few delivered. Hopefully anyone else waiting gets theirs soon.

It's been a tough 3-1/2 months waiting for this to ship. I would still like to know what caused the delays.

I ordered and received mine months ago. Did you try calling them? They were quite friendly.

The big problem for everyone is the destruction of the ship yards. Doesn't matter how much you can produce if getting your product out is stalled.

I am sad to say that I am canceling my order for the oriental. The arrival is now tentatively set for November. The wavedrum was always a luxury for me. I was hoping that it would help me write more intricate rhythms for large music compositions. As time passes and more family needs come up, I don't think it is wise for me to spend on this luxury now. Maybe another day.

I waited 3-1/2 months. I almost canceled several times. I know how you feel.
