I stopped at the Columbus GC yesterday, with the intent of checking out and possibly purchasing a Little Mark II head. I did so, and was very impressed with the head. I then plugged into a Mini 121P combo (LMII head in a very small 112 cab) and was even more impressed, so I said I'd take it. We went to ring it up, and I told them I wanted it at $899, which I believe is the standard Markbass price. They had it ticketed higher. Sales tard went into a speech about how it was just marked down to $899 for the President's day sale the week before. I explained to him, that actually it wasn't just marked down for the President's day sale, but anyway..... They said OK, then proceeded to try to sell me the warranty on top of the price. I explained to them it came AS PART of the selling price, and they should have a memo from Markbass explaining this to them. I invited the sales guy to go to his managers office and check for the memo. Finally, after arguing with the sales tard for a few minutes, a more senior sales tard came over and told him that it was included in the price, but it should be ringing up with the warranty listed on the receipt, and it wouldn't without me paying extra for it. I finally ended up telling them I'd take the amp at the standard price, I would NOT pay any extra for a warranty that was supposed to be included in the price, and that I would just keep the receipt and trust Markbass to do the right thing if there were ever any problem. As we were leaving, my girlfriend just had this kind of confused look on her face about the whole thing. I explained to her how shopping at GC was almost the same as shopping at a car dealership. You should assume almost everything out of the sales tards mouth is born from ignorance, lying, or both, and that it COULD be a good place to buy if you went in educated about the product. I'm very impressed with the product. I understand it's a large distribution channel, etc., but I so WISH that Markbass had gone a different route than GC to distribute the great amps.
