UPDATE:


This whole thing has been settled out. Yay!

I called, and the lady said it should've been in the same box, and just shipped me out another power supply free of charge.
Sadly though, it's been 13 days, and it FINALLY CAME! ..works perfectly, too!
I was just about to call them again.

So, now i've got another question: Does anyone else find them taking too long to ship? Or is it just the postal service being stupid?
Old Post:
I ordered a power supply for my Bad Monkey and a pack of strings... and a WEEK later, the strings come with a note in the box with little letters, saying, "This order has other items that will ship seperately."

And it's been a week now since that pack came in... so, a total of two weeks... and i'm running out of 9V batteries!


Has anyone else had bad experiences with MF? Or am i just unlucky?


And also, what music store is more dependable.... because i'm not waiting over two weeks for everything i order.

well, it's not in their control really, it's the post offices. if you not in america it takes forever to go through customs.

I ****ing love MusciansFriend. They've been great everytime I've purchased from them. Had to call in to cancel something because I failed to notice that it was backordered. The guy on the phone was really helpful and took care of it within minutes.

Yeah, the people on the phone were REALLY nice... i'm just pissed that it's taking so long.

But i guess it's the post office's fault.... and i got the cheapest shipping...

but still, it said 3-5 days, and it's been 2 weeks now. I'm just ranting....

Nope.

I ordered mic stands and mics, were supposed to come within 2-5 days, came in two days.

Edit:
But my friend ordered two mixers, drum mics, and mic cables. They were set to come the day we wanted to record. The Mixers and cables all came that day in time, but the drum mics ended up coming the next day. It was kinda useless.

Ehh only problem i've had with music websites was when I ordered my music stand from Guitar Center and they failed to tell me it was backordered. It took like 4 days extra but thats the only problem i've had.

be glad you didn't order a Hellraiser C-7 FR from Schecter. They had none in stock at my local music store, none in stock at Schecter HQ in california, and in fact, none currently finished at the factory in south korea.

Yeah, I ordered 4 weeks ago. I've been told at least another 3 weeks. 2 weeks is chump change man, I want my freakin guitar.

Wow.... that's gotta suck. Lol.


The UPS truck probably fell off a bridge and destroyed your guitar.

That's always my worst fear for some reason, like when i ordered my amp, i kept hoping the truck wouldn't explode or something....

They shipped a drumset to me in about 4 days with NO CHARGE on the huge ass box that contained the drumset. Now that's a great company.

Also, my halfstack had no shipping charge.

I thought any cabinets had a handling fee?

I know the Marshall 1960s on their site have a handling fee of around $60.

musician's friend might sometimes inconvenience you, but they know how to say sorry. one time i was informed that my guitar would come with a case but it didn't, and after emailing them, they offered me 50% off a pretty good case.

I am a big fan of musicians friend. An online music store is only bad when you wait a month for your purchase, when it finally arrives, you eagerly open the box only to find a bloody stump in the packaging. Upon a closer inspection, you realize that the stump is not in fact a finger, but is actually a penis. Upon an even closer inspection into this grusome discovery you realize that the penis looks awfully familiar. With gut-wrenching terror you rip your pants off only to discover nothing but a bloody stump where your best friend used to be. The last thing to run through your mind before insanity claims you is: "How the hell did they get my penis?"

That is what I would define as a sucky online music store.

i've only ordered through musicians friend once (actually, twice, but i didn't know about it, my mom was getting me stuff for christmas) and it came to me in like....4 or 5 days, but it's not bad. However all i ordered was a digitech rp150 and some picks. it all came in the same box, and in great condition. i think they threw in this Gillette or suave stuff for your face, i dont know, the box is in my room somewhere with the stuff still in it. the other time, i dont know how long it took, but my Les paul hardshell case and dunlop wah came in perfect condition.

When I ordered my guitar last summer, the day after I got it, the price dropped $50. I called Musicians Friend on the phone and they refunded my $50 immediately.

So, yes TS. You are simply unlucky and Musicians Friend is a top notch company.

Wow.... i guess i'll just keep ordering from them. From what i'm reading on this thread, i shouldn't have many more encounters such as this.

My next purchase will be an ISP Decimator!!! Wish me good luck on this one... i need it, my VK feedbacks like crazy.

Oh no, it's shipping JUST fine.

Except it's currently on a freighter heading to california. When it gets there, it has to be set up at their shop, and then it has to be shipped allllll the way to my local music store here in Michigan.

My only problem is that they won't ship to Quebec... I asked why , and I included a map of Canada showing what if someone from Newfounland would order something it would pass right through town...

The last few things I ordered from there came within the 3-5 days. I was also able to track them with the email they sent. Did you try seeing where your stuff is?

Yeah, it just says i can't track because of using cheap shipping... or something like that.
