So, Pit.

My mom left to the airport today in the morning, she is going to the USA, she asked if would like anything, so I told her I'd like an EHX Metal Muff, she's going to buy it in Guitar Center.

Since I won't be with her, and she knows absolutely NOTHING about musical instruments and things like that, I'm now afraid of what might happen to her while there.

Will she get the wrong pedal? (Even if I gave her the printed GC page with the Metal Muff)
Are they going to eat her alive?
Are they going to scam her?
And, the most important of all. Will she come home with a MG or a Spider III?

I'm scared Pit.

If you gave her a print out, she most likely will just go to the counter, ask for it, pay, and leave.

I sent my mom to GC once to get me some picks, and she came back with a pickguard for a Tele. I don't even have a Tele!

So yeah, you're pretty much screwed.

More importantly, will she throw away the packaging and the receipt, so you don't pay huge amounts on duty when she gets home?

If i ever send my mum to get me music related stuff i tell her not to buy it if its above the lowest price i can find.
And i tell her exactly what it is.
And if i can i order ahead and just have her pick it up.


Ring GC and put on on hold for whatever your mums name is and find out the price they have it for at the same time.


easy.

I do now.

Actually, i just go myself now.

But man, breaking it to her that she got the wrong thing was so hard. It was like, "Mom... This is a pickguard, i asked for PICKS." "Well, the guy said thats what you needed." "Mom... GC sales dudes rape the innocent."

Call her and tell her that they might make her buy something else, so tell her to stick to what you wanted.

I told er not to accept anything else than the Metal Muff, I could call them but I'm in another country and calling would be ridiculously expensive

They will send her home with a spider 3 claiming that it's a better version of a metal muff because it has a built in speaker.

Seriously, Spider III's aren't that bad. I don't have one, but my friend does. The "Metal" Preset has great tone. All the effects are great except the delay. It's not top quality but it doesn't deserve all the hate.

I don't profess to be an expert on Amps, far from it. I was going to get a Line6 Spider 3 I I assume that is what we are talking about).

I never did. But the following video, speaks to me like night and day. I do have good ears.

I know what I am getting.

The Spider III's really aren't as bad as people think. It's mostly just the noobs who buy them at Guitar Center and use the crappy presets who give it a bad reputation. If you have some idea of what you're doing, you can actually get a pretty good tone out of it.

This is what I understood too. But then I fiddled with a Vypyr and when I was released from prison for doing that, I decided I would get one, over a Spider as they just seem to sound waaaaaay, better.

The guy in that video, though possibly retarded, seems to know what he is doing (almost), so from his demo, the Vypyr sounds better to me.

Just tell her to get the pedal and not to listen to what the salesmen have to say.
