    I am curious about different equipment dealers you guys have found on the net that have good prices on a variety of things. I have found a couple that I think are excellent and wanted to pass them on to you guys/gals. I don't have any stock in these folks so don't blast me for promoting people! I stay the hell away from GC and other "super stores" except for very basic things as I have not found them to give inaccurate information at times, and their return policy is lacking on some things like mics... (based out of Knoxville, TN) The have a lot of basic stuff, and are very competitively priced. You have to call or e-mail them for price as they can't advertise below what the manufacturer posts as a retail price. (durham, NC) I ordered my Nuendo Audiolink 96 Digiset from them as well as the Studio Projects T3 and they gave me a better price than anywhere else I could find. I discovered them on ebay. (Nashville) A little more pricey than the previously mentioned two, and I have never ordered from them, but they are very knowledgable and have a lot of items.

    What have you guys found out there?

    GC experience: bought a Logic Control off the floor and they lost the power supply. I made them order a new one and sell me the unit at cost. Had to haggle and it took weeks to get the new PSU.

    Mercenary experience: bought a mic pre. A month later it stopped working. Sent an email. The _NEXT DAY_ a new unit arrived and the old one taken back. No questions, no bs.

    Whether one likes Fletcher and his "outspoken manner" is personal. In my experience, he is one of the few merchants that values his customers.

    You can also try Marquette Audio Labs and Atlas Pro Audio.

    Service is a point that I overlooked (and so very important). Glad you guys chimed in with that fact. Yes, price isn't everything - you definately have to balance the way the dealer handles problems. Sounds like Fletcher is a winner in that regard!

    For the record, I had trouble with the Digiset that I ordered from (not the dealers fault), but the thing stalled everytime upon booting the computer up. It was something to do with the circuitry that Nuendo/Steinberg finally upgraded. When I called soundpure and told them about the problem, he immediately told me what was wrong and that he would send me the upgrade as soon as he got some - which he did. So... Steinberg's customer service on the otherhand is non-existent as far as I can tell. Hope they get their $*^t together, because they have a good product. It would suck for them to not become an industry standard based on poor customer service.
  7. I have had good dealings with Humbucker Music in Atlanta and Bayview Pro Audio in Olympia, WA. David

    I have never been let down by any of these companies. None of them carry everything, but they are all easy to get a hold of and ship quickly.
