this is EXACTLY how these tubes came out of the box from Musicians Friend. they were thrown in a box with five or so other things (including a 1 spot) and some other smaller things.

but just thrown in there. i have tested to see if they work, but i called MF right away and they have five more coming my way free.

but just what the **** seriously? i usually buy from doug's or something, but i was needing a 1 spot and high E strings so i figured a few from MF would be fine. guess not.

/rant. think twice.

They probably figured since they were JJs they could handle the abuse


But hey - 10 tubes for the price of 5 ain't bad.

Yep, this. I get all my tubes from Eurotubes direct, no issues. But this is also why I prefer Sweetwater over the others. Never had an issue in many years of buying gear from them.

My thoughts exactly. That's pretty sweet they're sending more to replace the tubes that are probably just fine.

Fuck Musicians Friend.

I've ordered so much shit from them over the years and have had nothing but problems. If it's not the item being damaged, its them overcharging my account, or them forgetting to send me what I ordered..

EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

Why not just hold onto the extra tubes?

I have had very similar experiences with MF and tubes. they will throw them in a box with everything else and then wad a bit of brown paper and it is all good.

I called them and refused the package and got a set of replacements.

that being said, if it's a recurring thing, they should really do something about that.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Post pictures of how the other tubes arrive.

Glad they are taking care of you. It was probably some hourly guy packing everything up and he didn't know any better. Hopefully they fix that.

I'm not a fan of MF anymore. Poor customer service. Canceling orders without explanation is BS.

See, it's important that people clarify when they say "metal", because I pretty much always assume they are a Cannibal Corpse fanboi.

I quit ordering from MusiciansFriend a long time ago and started going with Zzounds and American Musical. Smaller companies and both have a fair bit of knowledge about all of the products they sell, as well as how to transport them.

Yes I was rude, and I was aggressive and I was offending a large group of people. But I was civlized about it.

All of the tubes are fine. Plus all replacements. I price matched them for $10 a pop.

My point is that they could have spent another $0.25 on wrapping material and not have a problem. probably not even 25 cents.

But I really can't complain because I got five of them free essentially.
