Big Music Retailers and Their Nefarious Ways

March 20, 2009 at 5:09 am (Guitar Stuff, Personal Stuff) (, )

While I was reading in the blogosphere this past week, i came across this interesting article. This particular blogger had enough with the nefarious ways of the big music gear retailers online. Obviously he’s named one in particular, but there are others that can be just as frustrating.


I don’t have a problem with large companies or corporate America. I have a problem when those companies sacrafice service for efficiency to try to save a buck. Just like HP and Dell having customer service centers outside of the US, these companies shove you through the press to get your order and forget you once you’re on the other side, other than to let you know about a new promotion.

Now I know what you’re saying… “I had a great experience!” I’m not saying tey’re horrible all the time. They have their moments and glimmers of hope, but mostly because of outstanding individuals who’d be that way no matter where they worked.

All I’m saying is that there are alternatives out there for buying guitars, strings, gear, etc. online. I found these guys and they really try hard to take care of you. A lot of their more expensive stuff has free shipping and they just really try to make it easy when buying stuff. So, I try to let folks know – there are alternatives!

Anyway, check out his post and leave a comment about what you think about the giant retailers.
