  • or maybe they are good to their customers and ship on good faith that the customer will hold up their end of the deal.


    That doesn't make them commendable. That makes them naiive.

    • Unprofessional? Childish? Sure.
      But I personally like when businesses sorta throw the rulebook out the window and operate as they are as individuals rather than the total pc safe way businesses are expected to be these days.
      This is rock n roll isn't it?
      Want a professional in pr company that is all about business? There are plenty of options out there for you.
      Like I still think its lame what they said (making threats on the internet always is) I really like that they stay true to who and how they are.

      I like it enough infact to want to go to their facility and check some **************** out.
      Anyone know how custom they're willing to go? I'd like an oversized 4x12 with a straight cab design but with a 1 piece slanted baffle. Also would like it to have a divider between the top and bottom speakers and seperate backs for each so I can run the top 2 speakers as partially open and the bottom 2 as closed.
      Paul when you gonna go man? We should hit it up together.

      • Well, the poorly written status that the OP is talking about does say they shipped the cab out instead of accepting an opportunity to actually meet the buyer (and his mom) in person...

        And it was still shipped either A.) before the check cleared, or B.) after it bounced. So still, wtf?

            their customer base is generally dirty metal heads with acne using allowance money to get gear.

                Exactly the kind of people I'd expect to be sketchy.

                I don't see anything wrong at all with a business waiting for transactions to clear before shipping goods. I have no qualms about them calling out the dude and I don't care about political correctness, but this just seems like a situation that could have easily been avoided.

                But I'm waiting on Dr. Picklebottom to enlighten me on option C of how the cab got shipped out. It's apparently glaringly obvious, so he should have no problem with explaining it.

                • from what i gather, check bounced, and the dude was going to send his mom in with cash.

                  never happened.
                  i fully support what they are doing as do a lot of people, they are about to sell a **************** ton more cabs because of it while you guys get butthurt over something that doesn't involve you in the slightest.

                    If a meeting was arranged and the dude didn't follow up on it, then I'd be pissed too. It's just that the wording of their status update implies that for some reason they just shipped it out instead of even allowing the meeting to take place.

                    If they sell more cabs from this, good for them. I just think it's business common sense to wait for payments to clear, so hopefully they'll do that in the future. Actually, maybe they won't need to, since these chances to call out shady customers are actually functioning pretty well as PR boosters.

                    I have no beef with the company or with calling mofos out. I'm just genuinely surprised any company would operate so strongly on good faith like that and not expect stuff like this to happen sometimes.

                    • taking a risk in order to help a kid realize his dreams is commendable, no matter what happens after shipping.

                      • i agree with your naiive accessment. that to me is commendable, to a degree. being willing to have faith in a stranger is pretty cool in a world of ****************ty black and white, '**************** you, pay me' mentalities.

                        was this whole thing preventable, of course. was their reaction juvenile and pointless? yes. will i continue to ask myself questions and then immediately answer them? no.

                          If they're willing to accept a potential loss (after all, that's what you do when you knowingly take a risk), then it's commendable. If they seriously expected this occurrence to not be a realistic possiblity, then it's stupid. If the risk is not an acceptable one to take, then use common sense and safeguards.

                            I agree that it's a cool mindset to have, but it's just silly and impractical, unfortunately.

                            • ****************ing hell, people. The amount of stick-up-the-assery and "how dare they" PC horse**************** in this thread is enough to make you choke.

                              The fact of the matter is that Emperor bent over backwards in even accepting a personal check as well as shipping the cab before it cleared. Clear signs that they're #1 priority is meeting their customer's needs. That combined with the fact that they make an exceptional product...it's a no-brainer.

                              Get your heads out of your asses. Half the "I'd never do business with them NOW" crowd in here never would have ordered one of their cabs anyway. Cut the ****************.
