hihingin number mo for update kung in-stock na yung item, tapos hindi ka naman iuupdate kahit meron na yung item dun sa branch... at parang hindi pa trained yung staff or kabisado yung items na meron sila, buong araw naman sila nakatambay sa store. plus, yung iba hindi ka ieentertain kung yung ichura mo mukhang walang pera.. tsk tsk..

what's really frustrating is....

ang mamahal ng mga gears, it increases your GAS attack, drool attack na rin and i there is always one store that exclusively distribute this and that brand of gears.

hindi ba pwede na bawat music store eh magcarry ng same brands para naman may totoong competition when it comes to pricing? parang SM vs Robinsons lang hehehe  :-)

ako naman last week dapat bibili ako ng cables sa perfect pitch.
siguro mga 5 mins na akong nakatayp dun sa may cables section
ung dude na supposedly magaassist nakikipag usap lang sa cellphone

nakatingin na nga ako sakanya..wala parin

tapos ung lady sa counter nakatingin lang sakin walang nagaassist >_<

i stormed out of there and decided to save up for lava cables nalang
Personally, mas prefer ko yung hindi ako pinapansin ng mga staff kapag tumitingin tingin lang ng items.

But if i've asked for assistance pero di ka pa rin ako pinansin, ibang usapan na yun.

kadalasan out of stock yung hinahanap ko, lolz.
weird experience kahapon: went to a music store and asked politely to test a certain pedal, tapos pinipilit akong bilhin yung pedal ora mismo. wtf.

High prices limited choices :-D

the law of supply and demand at work,

pero we must consider that these companies are paying for duties and customs, lagays, palakads and all that (may cost lahat yun) just to get em stuff in here thats why minsan umaabot ng 84% ang mark up especially in these trying times

Daming zombie threads ah. Anyway, here's something I personally experienced from one of the attendants of a certain music store.

I was checking out a couple of amps and the attendant walks up to me with a trolling look on his face, "Opo, sir?" he asked, as if he wanted me out if I wasn't buying anything since I was in shorts and a really worn shirt. Mukha akong tambay basically. Since I was asking for prices anyway, "Boss, pwede ba patingin ng mga 2x12 ninyo?" "Wala po kami niyan sir." "Eh mga 1x12 tube amps ninyo?" "Wala kami niyan." *I point at the 1x12 tube amp in front of me*

:facepalm:

On a lighter note, there's this one Audiophile store that was really attentive. It was at one of those Robinson's shopping centers pero hindi full mall. Forgot where exactly (just moved here) and ayun. I was price checking the AC-30s and the guy there (middle-aged guy, might be manager or something) was asking me what kind of AC-30 I NEEDED. Okay, that's a first. He then went on to show me different AC-30 stocks they had (the ones with different color panels on the top) saying "Okay, this has a different speaker set and if you notice the blah blah blah, it's lightyears ahead of the stock AC-30s we have here. Lightyears, pare. If you could go the extra mile, I highly suggest this. Baka gusto mo muna subukan?"

I would've pero I had to leave right away for a family thing. Haven't had precise service like that tho. I like that. I wish I'd see more of that in stores.

Nag Chri-Christmas sale or whatever sale, sasabihin 70 percent off or 50 percent pero yung price na yun, mas mataas pa din sa online price. For example: Online price is 5000 and pag dating dito 11000 na, tapos pag nag sale magiging 9000 na lang or 8K. IDK if it's just me or napapansin niyo din yun. hehe That's why I prefer buying online na lang.

1. Minsan yung mga noob na employees ang nagtetesting para sa mga bumibili. Like the ones I saw on a music store. Sobrang badtrip sarap sampalin ng tsinelas nung employee na nagtetest. Tinodo ba naman yung volume 200w amp with distortion na may nakaconnect na nakatodo ding electric guitar? Tapos palm muting ng palm muting kala mo naman ang sarap sa tenga! Kabadtrip eh! My point here is kumuha sila ng employee na marunong at alam nila yung ginagawa nila. Nakakabwiset tong mga ganitong encounter! Kumukuha kayo ng mga poser na empleyado na wala namang alam sa salestalk at customer service.

2. Napakaoverpriced ng mga items. Kahit lumang luma na yung item binebenta parin for a brand new price.

3. Confusing promos and ads.

4. Disorganized music store. Nakakalat lang yung ibang mga items.

5. And most of all. Halos lahat ng music store. They only focus on sales!

kelangan ng improvement sa sales dept. walang knowledge and experience sa mga products na binebenta. i recently had a bad experience in a new music store in cubao... itago na lang natin sa initials na JB!    :-D

i hate it when they "Sell" it and know nothing about it.... they make you wait... for hours... then giving you the wrong information... and making stupid mistakes regarding product model and prices and are not even familiar with their promos.

Pag walang stock ang isang store ayaw nila irecomend yung ibang branch nila or ihanap ka sa iba sa halip kukunin nila yung number mo at pag dating pa ng item mo malalaman kung meron o wala(why? kasi paunahan silang maka kota para sila yung may bonus) ang solusyon ko tawagan nalang muna lahat(landline) before ako magpunta sa kanila at bumili
