Behringer today announced that the Edge – their knockoff of the Moog DFAM drum synth – is now shipping, with a retail price of $199.
The company had announced in March that the Edge was ‘ready to ship‘. It’s not clear why it takes Behringer two and half months to go from ‘ready to ship’ to ‘shipping’, but it may be that they want to ship enough stock to retailers to meet initial demand.
