Impulse Music - Trustworthy store?


Recommended Posts

I found a cd that I want from the Impulse Music web store. Has anybody bought from them before.

 

Is it a good store to buy from. Are they a trustworthy store?

 

 

:rofl2::rofl2::rofl2:

 

Oh wait a mintue, you're serious. Avoid them like the fucking plague.

Cheers all!!!

 

I think I stay away.

 

As I've said before in other threads if you call and talk to a person you're okay.

You just want to call to make sure it's actually in stock since they don't list their items as in or out of stock like NEH does.

It shouldn't be as hard as it is to get somebody to answer the damn phone. From my experience, trying to deal with them is a complete waste of time.

I made the mistake of ordering 4 CDs from these idiots at the end of November and not only have they not arrived but they won't answer emails..... so I just put in a claim with visa for non-receipt of goods.....what really sucks is they always seem to have Cds that I want at reasonable prices..... oh well live and learn.....

I bought several Sun City releases from them, 2 out of 4 came scratched (and they were supposed to be new). They were very slow in responding but eventually replaced them. I haven't bought from them since. I did have to resort to calling them (they did not reply to any of my emails).

Emailing them is a waste of time but I used to get them on the phone when they were still in Chicago but haven't ordered from them since they moved to Colorado and since their service seems to get worse and worse I probably won't order from them again. Now that I think about it it's probably been a year and a half since I did order from them. It is very sad since they used to be great to order from and for years and years of dealing with them I didn't have any issues at all.

So I ran across the Impulse site, new to me, and start checking out the stock. Plenty of stuff I've not seen in forever. So much in fact that I decide to check here to see if any post were made about them. Glad I did. Thanks for the heads up (aka horror stories).

Again if you can reach them by phone that's the way to go since then they can tell you if something is in stock or not.

The way I look at if they do not answer emails then I am sure there shipping will be about the same!! Good Luck!!

I ordered some CDs from Impulse Music back in the early 90s when they used to advertise in Metal Edge magazine all the time. I had no problems with 'em then, but that was a looooooong time ago.

Clutch, good call!

 

I don't know how many more people from this site have ordered and NOT had bad experiences with them, but regardless of whether they eventually set the order right or not, for the amount of trouble it takes to get said situation resolved, it's usually worth it to pay a few more bucks and get the CDs from somewhere else, if possible.

 

Sad too. I used to love ordering from them.

Yeah Jay, they may have actually had some of the stuff I was looking for in stock but we'll never know now. Damn shame.

Never had problems, but I was a little bit push-y! :christmas:

 

So they actually answer your emails?

 

Yep. Always! And I would say very fast. The first experience wasn't good as there was a late response & no stuff in stock but all the other tries were excellent.

 

I never had problems back in the mid 90's to early 00's but over the last 4-5 years they never ever answered emails but were always great over the phone. I haven't ordered from them since they moved to Colorado and to be honest after the last couple of dealings I probably won't. NEH is wonderful to deal with and have never had an issue and Mike responds to emails very quickly. Of course sometimes Impulse has some things that NEH doesn't have but those things usually aren't in stock.

Call them first to make sure it's in stock and then place your order over the phone. I've never had one issue doing it that way.

    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
