hi,
Could anyone recommend somewhere i could buy a couple of c stands in Britain? either used or new.

i was gong to get them here http://www.videogear...p;productId=484 but they are out of stock till end of april.

Being in birmingham, renting isnt really an option as there doesnt seem to be a rental house close, and by the time i had driven to get them and paid for the rental buying just seems cheaper. Dont want to have them shipped from the US either duty to ridiculous customs charges and taxes.

Thanks

Arri make C stands:

Unfortunately, C stands aren't cheap and the weak pound isn't going to help against the US dollar or Euro, plus the 15% VAT on the listed price will add to an already expensive item.

You could check with a lighting company to see if they're selling any surplus C stands. http://www.panalux.biz/

However, I suspect they may have been though the wars a bit, but you can get spare parts to repair them.
