Almost every piece of gear I've bought in the last decade has been from out-of-town merchants which means shipping is involved. I've had so much stuff shipped over the years that everytime I see a UPS truck go down a street or see someone in a dark brown shirt I feel pressure in my pants. But invariably, they always deliver my stuff after 4 p.m., which almost always means either I don't have time to try it out the same day or I get a "no one at home" sticker on the door saying they will make 2 more attempts to deliver. Like today, for instance, I'm supposed to have 3 deliveries of bass stuff and it's a safe bet none of them will be here till 4 p.m. at the earliest on a gig night. Is it like this for any of you??? Is there some constitutional amendment that says these guys can't deliver before 4 p.m.? My home is in an old metro area about 20 minutes from the muny airport, not out in the boonies.
