    Hi guys,
    I recently fell in love with Aries basses and am thinking seriously about ordering one. However, I've had a lot of problems contacting them; they just don't reply to my e-mails. I also tried to contact Joey G's Music which seem to be their dealer in the states, but their mailbox is full ( :confused: ).
    Has anyone had simillar problems while trying to contact either Aries or Joey G's? I would be very happy if anyone could provide me any e-mails through which I could contact them.

    Thanks for help

    Their customer service doesn't seem to be anywhere near good. I have emailed with no response and called only to have them answer "we just got some basses in, call back another time." How's that for being helpful?
     
  3. I ended up calling them, becuase they took 10days to respond to my emails.
     
  4. Joey's is a typical NYC shop...gotta pester them, and when they finally notice you've been e-mailing they'll write back.

    Every time I have called Joey I have gotten him on the phone. Forget email, if you are really interested pick up the phone and call the man.

    Of course, it might also be good to nudge Aries to pick up some other dealers in the 'states as well ;)

    Joey has Aries tied up as the distributor in the US. BassAlone is the only other dealer in the US for Aries which goes through Joey G's. Joey has a number of Arie's in stock so you might just keep trying him.

    Those basses are from Croatia, why you go through all USA to find it? Luthiers are from Varazdin, maybe 100km from your place...

    I am the owner of the Aries custom bass. Ironically, I just listed it on Ebay. Paste the link;

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=4713&item=3770202036&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

    The electronics articulate every nuance of the bass... Unlike some preamps the sound is colored and doesn't enchance the natural characteristics of the wood. The tone on this Aries custom stands out! I believe it has Lefay "rough crystal" pickups. Nonetheles, the wenge, padouck and maple 7pc neck truly brings out a grand piano tone that is truly awesome. The only reason I'm selling is I have too many basses sitting under my bed.

    Peace,


    David

    I just got off the phone with Arijan, what a great man; I ordered a bass which I hope is going to be phenomenal. :)

    23 hours left and it's reserve's not met at $563? Tell you what-cancel the auction and I'll give ya $700 for it :D j/k

    I emailed Joey G's once and got a response back the next day, although their website needs a LOT of work.
