    This is my understanding of this:
    If you had a sagging ribbon from the previous group buy, (not the 2008 GB, the one before that...), Chance has said he will replace those ribbons. Replacees had to wait till all the new GB items were shipped before Chance would start to ship the replacement ribbons. He requested that you email him with your info (musicians.workshop@gte.net) and I understand that some of the replacements have begun to arrive. HTH

    zombie thread, back from the dead!

    I got a couple of replacement ribbons years ago. i was suprised that they actually showed up.
    Half of the stuff i bought was ok, but I don't think i'll ever do a group buy again.
    whatever it is...i'm against it.

    Yea I was so mad about this I havent' posted for 2 years. I had this bookmarked to come back to, and here we are.

    Chances not for profit group would have produced a nice profit if he stooged everyone else [not sending all the goods, not replying to PMs] like he did me.

    I'd love to see those who are still waiting post up what exactly they are waiting for. I'm heading over to LA in March to work for a few months, i'd be more than happy to take a list with me and see what I can do

    Not forgetting this one.

    When all of this was going down a few years ago, here and at Prodigy Pro forum, I tried to convince people that group buys are not a good value - this pissed off folks who didn't like any rain on their parade.

    Let's look at ribbon mics as one example. $79 for a Nady RSM-5 delivered in three days from the major vendors.

    These misc are being sold at $79 to the end user with almost no profit margin to either Nady or Musician's Friend once shipping, import duties, distribution costs and, importantly - customer service - are figured in. One microphone manufacturer in China told me he saw Nady products being sold at retail for less than what the Chinese manufacturer charges for them!

    In effect, microphones have become cheap commodity products that attract visitors to vendors' web sites where the vendor counts on the prospect buying higher profit or higher revenue-generating products.

    Groups buys were a bad idea whose time has come and gone.

    whatever it is...i'm against it.

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.
