I gotta say that Chad is a great guy. I bought a lot of gear at BassNW in the late 90's early 00's. Then I went back to the store in 2010 after not going there for probably 8 years, Chad was there and immediately came over to say hi, remembered my name and asked me how my Lakland was doing. Then he encouraged me to take down a Lull T-bass that I told him was pretty, even after I told him I could never afford it and I wasn't in the market for instruments anyways.
I hope he does well with this effects store, I feel bad but I look to buy new pedals out of state to avoid our sales tax. If you don't live in WA state then please make up for my cheapness by giving BassEFX a shot!
That's my story and I'm stuck with it.
