Where to buy APC 40 & NI Machine online/ best deals for US?

Post by Xelat » Wed Sep 02, 2009 4:06 pm

Hi,

I want to buy the NI Maschine and an APC 40 and don't know where to look for good deals in the US.
I'm looking for an online store specialized on Electronic Music Production, DJ & Data Jockey equipment considering the following criteria:

- low additional costs (taxes, delivery to Rhode Island/US)
- competitive product prices
- quick delivery
- good service quality (esp. after purchasing a product, warranty issues etc.)
- more or less specialized on the needs of electronic music producers

Can you share some of your experiences, recommendations?
Thanks for your advice,
X.

I might have a Maschine for sale. I've used it maybe an hour total, but found myself to be way quicker using my trusted Padkontrol. PM me if interested.

I get most of my stuff through musicians friend. Decent selection, usually no shipping costs or taxes and their having a sale for call in orders, all you have to say is the word workers and they'll mark a % off depending on what you buy (over $100)

I'm thinking of picking up the same gear very soon myself (APC for DJing and Maschine samples for producing), but I'm out in Canada and I'll be buying locally.

Good luck!

If you're buying both those items, call and talk to a sales rep. See if they can cut you a deal.

What was your final price at Guitar Center? $250? I'd like to try this too but GC policy stickly states "authorized U.S. dealer", how did you get around that? This company looks based in the UK. Best I could do at my GC over the holiday weekend was $325, but I'm still holding out after seeing your post I'm glad I did. Was this GC online?

@ DJAnyStyle: Will Ted offer a special deal?
@ Makemark: How did you beat down the price at GC? What was your argument?

Do you work there? lol.

They called me after I bought a gear bag like "hey i'm scott ____. I'll be your representative. blah blah" 2 months later I got a call "hey i'm joe _____. Scott went on to something bigger and better and I'll be your rep now." Then it happened yet AGAIN 6 months later.. Are they scaring people away, am I? Or are they actually getting promoted and moving up.

FUCK GC, you can't go in there and look around with out 14 metalhead's trying to sell you shit you don't need.
And FUCK Sam Ash.. you can't get help in there if you wait around for an hour, then they tell you that the Fast Track Ultra is a 6x6 interface and it doesn't have MIDI.

Yeah, that's why when the 14th GC rep came up to me "can I help you"? I said yeah do be better than $349 on this APC40 its labor day BLOWOUTS!!! But he would not budge lower than $325.

Sam Ash is like nobody works there just some people hanging out, and they still don't have the APC once they get them it will be on with them and GC and they'll go down to $299 easy.
