Good karma story:

so yesterday unexpectedly i got a package with the box labeled blackstar!

oh boy....yep....they sent me another amp...weird right? if you dont remember, they said that it had gotten damaged during shipping and went straight back to the warehouse....

well i had got my money back and decided to put an extra 100 and get the full stack....well anyways...

i said hmmm....i have this one here, i could sell it for $400

but nope, i went and did the good guy thing and returned it to guitar center and explained what happened. apparently it was shipped from a different order number, and the warehouse didnt even know or have any record it was shipped!

so the manager said since i was so honest, he would give me a discount on stuff in the store if i wanted to buy anything.

so i did

i bought these new things:

TC Electronics G sharp
M audio Mic Pre amp
2 3foot cables
1 patch cable
1 18foot cable

all for a whopping $100

yay me!

i finally got a mic pre amp, so my recordings through my mic wont sound like crap

look heres a sound clip with the g sharp + blackstar full stack + random crappy tapping (the little buzzing you hear is a result of me plugging my gsharp power in the same strip as the blackstar)

listen to that bass and bottom i get with a 1x10...kinda cool huh?

Great stuff man. All that for 100$ sounds hard to believe even with the discount. So lesson learned - be honest and you will be rewarded smile.gif
