    So, i picked up a cabinet from there, and i said i needed a speaker cable with 2 speakons, about 5 feet. They said they had one in the warehouse. 10 minues later, "oh, i guess we don't have it...". So, i got a cable which is speakon to 1/4" (my amp has 1/4" and speakon). So I go home, hook it up. nothing. Turns out the cable is wired wrong. Its wired for mono bridged or something like that. So i try to take it apart to rewire the speakon, and its glued closed!

    I had volleyball tonight and my mom was going shopping, so I sent a note with her saying:

    ' 1/4" to 1/4" speaker cable, 5 ft. '

    You know what they sold her? An instrument cable. With two mono jacks on each end. One end marked red, one marked black. :mad:

    Now I have to spend another 10 bucks on gas to drive a half hour there and back. :scowl:

    I wish there was a better store less than an hour away...
     
  2. Just order from Bayou Cables. He doesn't get things wrong. AND he's cheaper than GC is.

    If you don't have anyplace good within an hour drive, start shopping online. Believe it or not, it is pretty easy. ;)

    I think music stores should hire musicians. I shop elsewhere. :D

    with such a descriptive note that you left your mom, i don't know how they could have screwed it up.

    I think this is his mother's way to teach him to get his own damn cables. :p

    yeah i love that place... only, its a rare occasion that my parents are ever up that way. I actually live 20 minutes south of albany, so it isn't exactly around the corner. Now that i have my licence, I'll be heading up there a bit more often. Maybe i'll see you there! :bassist:
