Ok, for a while now ive been looking for a protable recorder, and i found a tascam for 60 on sale, so i was intending to go and get that at my closest GC tommorow... However...

www.guitarcenter.com/R...o-Audio.gc

Look at the moveing icons, when it gets to ALESIS VIDEOTRACK, STOP AND LOOK AT THE PRICE!!! Then click on it AND LOOK AT THE ***NEW*** PRICE!!!

Now that you have seen the drastic price comparison ( if you havent, its 100.00 to 180.00 ), im going to drop the hammer tommorow when i go.

Im going to ask the price, then show them the price THEY listed it as online.

If that fails, im going to ask them to match the price to the listed one.

If That fails, im going to TELL THEM THERE POLICEY OF THE GUARENTEED LOWEST PRICE.


ALso i have a coupoun for 10.00 off 50.00 or more... Twisted Evil They are going to be screwed when i wlk in there!!!

I have PRINTED THAT SCREEN THAT SAYS 100.00 DOLLARS!!! I HAVE PROOF!!!

Well good luck. Back when I was hard into music, guitar center was great about that stuff. You shouldn't have a problem.

I don't think you will have an issue. I know they are very good. I had bought some Sabian AAX cymbals and when I opened the package they had some sort of heat marks on them. Took them back and they didn't even worry about the warranty I had bought they just replaced them on site. They are great.

That being said, I would have a hard time duping them out of something. I know it is there fault and a faulty advertisement but they have never done me wrong. If it were say Best Buy or some other store like that it wouldn't be as bad for me. GC has always treated me well and listened to me even when they are annoyed by me and just want to get rid of me. I know this sounds like a moral stand but really it's just politics. Screw me I screw you. Treat me like a family member I will be loyal to you.

Not that I am saying not to do it but I would have reservations. Just my two cents.

Just make sure you act like an adult and don't go in there expecting to get that item for the price. Basically, you'll be interacting with a like-minded musician (i.e. the employee who will enable you to get said item at said price) and if you go in there and immediately start playing the "I saw it online at this price so YOU HAVE TO GIVE ME IT FOR THAT PRICE" kind of attitude you might find yourself in an uphill battle.

I'd say go in there, check the item out, get an employee to answer a few questions, tell him what you want to do with it, say you're a poor son of a sharecropper and say you saw it online for such and such. Just don't go in there pick the item out and drop it at the cash register and say "I'm only paying this much because of your guarantee"

Anyone can forge a website price in photoshop and print it out, so if you're a jackass, they can probably ass-jack back harder.


EDIT: Wait a minute. I just realized what the heck you're trying buy. You said something about a Tascam 60, and now you want a video recorder. Don't do it. Stick with some sort of straight audio recording device. Try craigslist.

Thanks for the input everybody, i wont go in there like a mad man and sue. I undersatnd people make mistakes, but for some, thats opertunity.

Eeyore, it was a tascam dr-03. its on sale for $60.00.

Ill see if i cant get the alesis, if not, tascam is a fallback.

Eeyore, the reason im getting it is for podcast/ robotics class use.

My robotics class has to document everything we do daily, so i was going to bring this so we can record changes in the design and what we plan to do...

for podcasting, i probably wont need the video as much, but if i have a review of something, like my MI bko ( another reason i want the video so i can do a shooting video ), then id like to show that i have used it.

Welp, i just got phsyced!

My dad asked them if they had it and they said yeah. The sales engeineer started asking about the 2 year replacement stuff and stated that he would give us a 99.99 dollar gift card if it broke so immediatley i knew it was for 99.99, then he added the coupon and i pulled out my wallet and my dad had already payed for it...

So i did get the alesis videotrack, the video quality is actually very nice, sounds great! Pictures however are fuzzy, but i didnt get it for that purpose. I like it! now i have to get some air and paint for the MI and ill make a video for yall.

Congrats man. Sounds like the higher price was the wrong one anyways.

Not good, i just pulled out the software yesterday only to find there is a huge crack in it. Looks like a return will follow suit after my dad gets back from puerto rico.
