Guten abend. Ich bin in Deutschland!
Starting a new life over here, and GAS has set in already. Part of my deal was one month's extra salary to cover the costs of moving everything. Instead, I came with two bags and I'm going to blow it all on new shit.
So looking for a reputable source of tech stuff.
Thomann look promising (they have the least crappy website I've seen.
I avoid online stores, trying to support small local stores like Cream Music (since 150 years) in Frankfurt or Uli Rhode`s in Heidelberg where you can try instruments, talk with people who love music and instruments, but above all have knowledge /experience and if they dont they say so. The huge shops like Musicstore, Session Music, Just Music are not any better than online, they all moved more and more into online business and competent salesman became rarity, than better ordering online instead of wasting time listening to rubbish sale talk. Years back shops like Session Music were started by passionate musicians, or music fans, meanwhile sold to big entities with no connection to music.
Thomann defines the prices on German market - all the other online shops try to follow, match their prices (if they dont they will matvch the price if you show them that Thomann has it cheaper) check online shops located in eastern Germany like Korn Musik and Musik-Town, very often they have better deals than Thomann. http://www.meinpaket.de
have interesting deals, it is actually DHL trying to compete with Amazon and co. so they actually subsidies the sells. I bought 299€ Novation from Korn Music through them but paid only 250, most recently Aiaiai Capitol cans for 39€ instead of 99.
