    I'm here to warn any of you thinking of purchasing a cab from Marc Serio at Dr. Bass. The guys a crook. I ordered a DRB412 cab from him over a month ago everything was going fine. two days later my wife looses her job of many years because her local toy store can't stay in business. I asked Marc at Dr. Bass for a refund & to please cancel my order. Marc said no problem, I'd have the money back in my account by the end of the week. I waited...Nothing. Two weeks later Marc said he would take it out of his personal account to pay me back. Weeks later... Nothing! I email & call but to no avail. I've contacted the Better Business Bureau already & I'm talking to a lawer to see what legal action I can take. My family is going through hell trying to keep afloat. I've had to sell all my gear to pay bills & keep food on the table for my wife & son. I even had to take a 2nd job. Be forewarned! Do not buy from Dr. Bass. Crazy thing is, about a year ago I bought the DRB610 from Marc off ebay. I got a little bit of run around but didn't think too much of it. Ebay & Paypal had my back & got Marc to ship the cab when I complained. Great cab by the way, too bad I had to sell it.

    the crappy think is that it is hard to search dr. bass on TB, at least I have a hard time due to the three character thing

    There have been a number of Dr. Bass complaints over recent months. There are also many happy customers, so it's not like he's the devil or anything, but I have seen an awful lot of complaints about him failing to deliver the goods in a timely fashion, and dropping the ball on communication with the customer.

    It's true that "Dr." gets you nothing with the regular search, but (a) the advanced Google TB search does just fine with Dr. or Dr. Bass or whatever, and (b) one of the Amps forum mods recently started changing the Dr. Bass thread titles to "Doctor Bass" for easier searching.

    Thanks for closing this before it got out of hand Chris.

    To the OP, we already have an existing thread for concerns/complaints regarding Dr.Bass. Please post it there and stick to just the facts of your business transaction. Good luck and I hope you get the situation resolved quickly.

    Read the following response...

    Yep, that mod is me. :cool:
