I purchased a tap tempo from a very reputable builder around these parts (TGP) in June, and I just received today. I'm pretty put off about it, but is this common for something like this to take that long?
Sounds like it is not acceptable to you then, I suggest you find a new builder in the future or buy one that is in stock, there are tons of people who build these things, I cant imagine why you would wait for one unless it was a one of a kind type thing.The Thing is, this guy is not a basement builder!
Who builds tap tempos that are NOT basement builders?The Thing is, this guy is not a basement builder!
When you put it like that, maybe he is, but the builder is so well known and popular, I figured It would be a quick and easy build guess I was wrong?Who builds tap tempos that are NOT basement builders?
Even the slightly bigger guys like JHS, google search the address...looks like a basement builder.
The non-basement builder guys....Analogman, Keeley, Barber, etc....they don't build tap tempos.
While this is true (I own 2 of them)....most of use don't want that monstrosity on our board when you can get one 1/4 the size for the same price.You can walk into any major music store and get a BOSS FS-5U - I think that's the model number, you want the unlatching one - and be done with no waiting for under $30.
Totally agree 4 months is way too long a wait for a tap tempo.When you put it like that, maybe he is, but the builder is so well known and popular, I figured It would be a quick and easy build guess I was wrong?
And I'm not trying to start a whole fest RANT here, I was just surprised and was wondering if thats a normal thing.
Agreed. It's less about the complexity of the build and more about your place in line and how many orders are ahead of yours. OP - Were you aware of the wait at the time you ordered?A tap tempo is a simple thing but if its in line behind 100 other orders of varying complexity I can see why it would take long to get through the queue.
