How come buying a LM is so difficult?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by rasrick, Feb 22, 2008.

  1. I don't mean to keep harping about it. I just don't get it. I have gotten zip for even a price on a LM 250.I have called and emailed from Texas to Toronto. What gives?

    That is strange. I called my local GC, was quoted $599 with one left new in the box and went down and bought it an hour ago. It couldn't have been easier.

    Only GC sells them new, and they are $599. Easy. See?
  4. You guys aren't serious, right? you're toying with me.

    You can check with Peter Murray, but I don't believe the LM250 is available here yet. With the price the LMII is going for it would be hard to pass it up. I wouldn't think the LM250 would be that much cheaper. Don't know anything about the LM250 so maybe it's got features that the LMII doesn't.
  6. Guess I'm just impatient. I just need to be able to use an 8 ohm cab and I really don't need a batch of volume. Just want that low. Argh. so many LM's out there. , so little time........ I have to calm down. I'm slapping myself :}

    I have my new LMK 2 running through an 8 ohm cab right now. Just be sure to watch the volume level and you will be fine.

    Sounds great by the way.
  8. I appreciate the words of encouragement. Now all I have to do is score one somehow. I'm calm, ohmmmmmmmmmmm:cool:

    I'm with r379. I don't believe the LMK 250 is available in the US. I emailed clubbass.ca and didn't get a response on the price. My guess is calling them might be better.

    I was thinking that ordering from Canada would put the price close to that of the LMK II. Not certain though.
