Midwest Percussion Discount

It wouldn't have been that big of a deal, if it I hadn't of ordered it NEW. They told they would replace it, and they would ship another one ASAP, and when I get it I could send the other back. Never heard from them again. The rack doesn't really bother me, especially since you can see it from a crowd, but when I buy something new, I expect it new. When Guitar Center shipped me a new cymbal with a dent in it, I had it taken care of with-in a few days. MidWest Percussion has awesome prices, I can't find anyone that comes close, but for the service I got, it wasn't worth it.
this is some terrible stuff. I've had my share of horrible service by a drum shop that was similar. Always lying to me and it ended up really shafting me in the end. So I'm very sensitive to these kinds of stories. And therefore I do not plan on sending them any of my business. I judge a business by their worst stories, not their best. And this one (and the other) go below what is acceptable to me.

For what it's worth, I ordered a complete set of bags from Midwest Percussion a month and a half ago. I still haven't received the bags, and when I called to check in, I was told that they were all there except for one, and I should have them in a week. That was about a month ago.

Yeah, wonder what's happened with them. I've purchased from them a few time now and the last time I did, my experience was like yours.

Last order was for a few things (three run of the mill Yamaha Cymbal stands) and was told, like you were, "all but one was here", to find out a month later - that wasn't true either. Took them another 5 weeks. It's terribly frustrating as the end consumer. The discounted promo wasn't worth the hassle so as of my last situation with them, I have taken my business elsewhere.

Again, what I ordered was nothing out of the ordinary.... Could of and should of got it elsewhere.

The feedback on Midwest is appreciated. I was about to order a snare from them as along with the 16% discount I selected a "free" $55 Midwest gift card. However, when checking out it was not specifically listed and after seeing the posts above I decided to bail.

The other thing I don't understand:

"For the next 16 days anything ordered online that is over 99.00 before tax and or shipping will be discounted 16 percent by using the coupon code #BIG16. Offer good through 2/10/2012."

So, they are running this for the next 16 days but the offer is good until last February?
