Was thinking about getting Mimeophon as well, but ended up getting Beads.
Does clocked delay stuff very well, has a nice reverb, modes of quality and noise (i.e. you can have crystal clean signal should you want) and then does all the granular + wavetable oscillator.

So yeah, if you can't find it and don't want to wait, I would say get MI Beads.

I keep hesitating over beads, I always end up watching Arbhar videos instead. At least the stock shortages are curbing my spending!

Never used Arbhar or checked out many videos of it to see if it does delay.
I mentioned Beads because it does delay and has a lot of overlap with Mimeophon, both doing delay and from what I've seen in videos anyway.

I have a Beads and Mimeophon next to each other in my case. At least for my use, they are very different and with little overlap. I would say the new Strymon Starlab is much closer to a Mimeophon. With echo on, Starlab combines clocked delays with a reverb in a somewhat similar way.

It's not that there are no second hand Mimeophon, it's that they're all listed at a higher price than new ones.
399 euros new with Shneidersladen, 450-500 second hand on Modulargrid.
What the hell?!

Wish nobody would ever pay more than the retail price, for modules still in production, ever.

From Elevator Sounds update on Monday:
Good noise for Make Noise fans - the Mimeophon and 0-CTRL are coming back into stock next week. Their flagship delay has been sorely missed from our shelves, preorders highly recommended.

I’m kinda holding out for a mimeophone to replace my Qu-bit Prism and finally complete my rack (haha) but none to be found anywhere, should I wait or should I get something else?
Elevator Sound in Bristol UK reported they are getting some this week. Not sure where you’re based.

Completely predictably they come back into stock after I picked one up from eBay, I saved £60 on new though.

Oh that's too bad, I'm always sad when I read such reports because I've always had good experiences with them. Maybe that's because they're close to where I live which makes things go faster (an make me biased), but I'm sorry it did not work out well for you.

I ordered with them. I live in Barcelona so I'm not a million miles away. Fingers crossed no problems!!!!
