Local Pickup Changes

Posted by

No More Local Pickup?

Beginning January 2nd, 2019, we will no longer have guaranteed open access warehouse hours. Local pickups for existing orders will be available by appointment only, during our customer service hours Monday to Friday 8am-4pm. If you stop by the warehouse without making an appointment, you may find the warehouse doors closed and locked with no one inside to assist you.

As usual, after you place an order you will be notified when your order is "Ready For Pickup."  Please contact us with the time you plan on arriving to pick up your order.  We will make sure a staff member will be here to assist you.

Speaker Cab Power Handling For Guitarists - Part 3

How loud will this speaker be? Contrary to popular belief, wattage doesn't determine overall loudness. The speaker's efficiency is the real key.
