I had been thinking of purchasing a KSD Jazz bass from Brooklyn Gear, but no more! The basses are awesome sounding, that's for sure..BUT..... As I walked into thier booth at NAMM, a nice young man working there offered to let me try one out. This kid was full of enthusiasm, and proud of the product. It was about 10:30, and since it was my day off, I had a beer with me. Some older guy at brooklyn Gear saw the younger guy setting up an amp for me, and developed a scowl on his face. He asked me rudely,"how many beers have you had?" Then, while the young man was still trying to set up an amp and cord for me, this older guy took him aside and although it was pretty loud in there, I could tell he was dressing down this young employee for letting me try out the bass! well, the bass was excellent, but I won't ever buy one from a company that employs people like this guy. he looked at me as though I was a homeless guy asking for a hand-out...you know, one of those looks from shoes to shirt... In my opinion, the company should let that sour-puss go, and keep the young guy instead...I won't ever buy from them if they keep jerks like that employed. I am a bass player with 25 years experience, and I don't need to be treated like an idiot. How refreshing to deal with people like Jill and Bill Azola, the guys from King doublebass, and Emmett Chapmann..who treated me with respect, dignity and enthusiasm. That's why they are who they are!
