Hey all, damn it's been a long time since I was last here. GPO is still workin' fine with me for the most part
Anyway, has anyone bought stuff online from sweetwater? I'm looking at getting Drumkit from Hell Superior and it's about a hundred bucks cheaper buying it online and getting it fed ex'd than getting it here.
They're known for their customer service. Personally I haven't worked with them much because I'm poor and I can usually find stuff for a few bucks cheaper somewhere else. But if a few bucks here and there isn't a big deal for you, I'd recommend them. They're very communicative, and they'll talk to you for a half hour answering your questions on this vs. that. The cynic in me knows it's all in the name of making sales and getting return customers, but ultimately who cares? If the service is good, the service is good, so why question it?
I bought my first sampler, a Mirage, from Chuck when he was just starting the retail business that would become Sweetwater as we know it today<G>!
Over the years I had one truly bad experience with them, and sadly they let it fester for quite a while. Then out of the blue they finally made good on it. I think that speaks volumes.
If I buy on-line I tend to buy from either Sweetwater or Full Compass, depending on what I need, each has their strengths. Mostly, however, I buy locally. I'm fortunate to have a great music store about 30 mintues away, and I am happy to pay a small premium to keep them there. And, much to my pleasant surprise, often there is no premium...
