GC At least 50% Off

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Fetch Da bass, Nov 14, 2002.


  1. Did you all get something in the mail from GC claiming that they are having a "Save Not Up To, But At Least 50%. Green Tags Mean You'll Find Savings Of 50%, 60% 70% Or More"....
    They are claiming the manufactures that they do business have to much inventory, due to the slowest economy in over a decade. Don't miss your chance for these extraordinary savings

    I think they have one or two of these every year, don't they?...Everytime I go to one of these events at GC it's nothing short of nothing really marked down...maybe some scratch/dinged up stuff that they didn't to return to the manufacture. anybody smell any real bargins?????????:



    Fetch!:oops:

    Take it from a former and angry GC employee...

    If it's on sale, there's something wrong with it.

    (Although I hate to sound sympathetic to GC, the last sale they had, a Goliath senior went for $450 and a Megoliath went for $650. I believe it was because GC won't carry them anymore. Nothing wrong with either, so maybe you should at least scope it out)

    Yeah, monster truck rallies are a good approximization. Same thing with their website...they list stuff when its normal at like 40 PCT...duhh everybody knows thats just off MSRP...then whenever they do have a sale it is like 70% off...dupes beginners on thier first purchases. I'd like a goliath for cheap, though...

    Neumann KMS 105 mic, $599 list, $300 sale. AKG C-4000B mic, $848 list, $200 sale. And, of course, this, $3,995 marked (probably more like $3,695 list), $1,500. It can happen.

  11. I am sure that not all of their sales are erroneous, but the other day I was at the GC near my place and they were having a huge Halloween sale with the whole tag schpeal (sp?) and so I look at the price of a brand new Line6 POD, which normally sell for $350, was tagged and had a price of $349. I don't know if I am mistaken but Maybe they mean like 0.5% sale, not 50% sale? Oh well, some day I will get lucky on a clearance sale. ;) :p
