On a practical note, though: Do customs REALLY bother to check peoples privately purchased boutique pedals and modular synth components? Has anyone actually gotten "caught"?
I don't know anyone in sweden who has. I checked with some synth boards and there's no mention of the RoHS whatsoever. I'm actually starting to think that sweden has no actually "applied" the directive (if that's even possible). I find three people with dotcom modulars and absolutely no mention of the RoHS or any trouble with it at all.

Most of my gears are imported from US or EU country, and I never had any problem with RoHS compliant. As SickMonkey said: "anything manufactured before 2006 is ok to import". I bought my Emulator II and both Emax from US and I didn't have any problem with it, though I had to pay custom fees 25% for them but what could I do? :wink:
From another EU country you can buy stuff for up to €200.00 without paying any taxes, everything more than that, taxes applies.
