Buying before possible price increases?

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Freightshaker, Jul 11, 2018.

  1. The landscape of international trade is changing. Just wondering if others are stocking up on gear like strings, etc.

    Personally, I just moved up the purchase date of items that were on my mental list. For example, I re-tubed one amp, bought tubes for another, and picked up a couple of pedals not made in the states.

    I have no insider knowledge if these items will see a price increase, but I don't want the goal posts moved on something I was planning to buy.

    Please, NO politics, just seeing if others are doing something similar.

    Nothing out of the ordinary for me.

    I'd rather wait and respond to what I do know than react to what I don't know.

  3. I don't think anyone knows for sure. I do know that the steel wear houses where I deliver, have been stocking up for months. How this trickles dow to MI gear is anybodys guess.

    I can’t let things like that dictate when I buy things I need. I don’t drive around on Empty waiting for the price to go down.

    To avoid politics, I'll stick to answering your question. No.
