    I have come to the conclusion, that everyone working there, are nerdy ass teenagers who don't know SHIT about equipment, and only reccomend items that aren't selling well, so they can cop the commission.

    If people here at RM suggest something, and we all come to the same conclusion, and you hit up GC, and they come out of left field, with something totally different, ignore them.

    For example..

    Ill called, and they said the 1820 was as good as the 1820M.
    Now that's funny, because ANYONE who's ever reviewed either in the history of E-Mu's launching of them, seems to all agree on one thing...the 1820M holds better quality.
    WOW.
    Now GC claims while the converters are diff, the quality is the same.
    This makes me wanna beat the fuck out of the dude who told him that.

    Another example, I was emailed about 3 months ago, buy a kid from another message board, who went in to buy an E-Mu 1212M, and GC reccomends a Delta 44 instead, because "supposedly" the converters were worlds better, and E-Mu had a history of being shitty.
    Once again, complete lies.

    Now I myself, have noticed, I used to go into GC, to purchase cables, Mogami infact, and I was directed to buy some BULLSHIT Waves cable, or whatever the fuck those cockchuggers called it, and they proceeded to tell me that those wave cables, were the best in the industry.
    So I told the kid to get the fuck out of my face.


    FUCK GC, Boycott those motherfuckers.

    One more thing..before you think you can't get the item you WANTED, JUST because GC or wherever is close to you, and they dont have it..stop and slap yaself.

    Go to froogle.com, search for your product, by lowest to highest, and find the lowest price.
    Now head to music123, 8thstreet, etc, email them the link, and ask them to beat it.

    They'll save you 10%, you can mail them a money order, and get the item you really wanted, not just what GC pushes on you.

    Truth ^
    The only plus side of stores is u can test shit out
    but if ur looking to buy something.. ask them to hook u up with a "Michael is innocent" shirt .. cause either way ur an idiot if u walk out that store with a bag.. might as well go all out

    I bet they be wearing those geeky ass looking glasses. Also, if you tell them you can get the emu-1212 for $170, they will look at you and be like, "Why are the hell you telling me for'. We only sell it for $200.

    Then you'll see a 40 year-old man, that work there, in the background, waving his head like you just did something wrong. You know how they be looking when they figure you don't have enough money. They start walking around, looking like Jerry Springer.

    I'm gonna definitely buy a guitar from them. You know the kind that shoot out bullets? Well thats the one I'm gonna be holding, when I walk out that mothafucka!

    they wanted to charge me $32 for a 3ft mogami gold mic cable

    they sell 6 ft mogami cable cable for like $28

    i told em i can get a longer cable for less and they didn't believe me so i asked em up to load up the internet so i can prove it and those fuckers didnt even have internet although they have a few computers.

    I asked a guy about wharfedale 8.2's and he said "Those aren't mons, they're bookshelf speakers" ... Yes, they're known to be bookshelf speakers, but the fucker didn't do his research to know that they make mons as well.

    Tips for shopping at Guitar Center:

    if you know what you want, find the best price online, print it, bring it in, show the salesperson, and tell them you want the Guitar Center "guaranteed lowest price."

    if you know what you want, tell the salesperson "I don't want anything else, I want this."

    if the salesperson sounds like they don't know what they are talking about, ask to talk to the GC Pro salesman or their manager.

    Guitar Center is a corporation, the salespeople make money off of what you buy. If you walk into the place expecting something else, you'll probably leave pissed off.

    I guarantee that every salesperson there doesn't consider it their job to teach you audio. Everyone is concerned about getting the most money out of you in the shortest time.

    Wake up and rub the sand out of your pussy.

    We don't have a local GC, but all the music stores have a lack of equipment and they're all anti hip hop people so they all talk down to me, I swear, Bellingham sells barely anything of quality music wise.
