What's super odd (at least to me) is that if you scroll through BBs stock, you can see that some items are sol and shipped by other companies - like Cosmo Music.

I just bought a Line 6 HX Effects (helix without the amp crap), so I checked BB to compare and it was the same price - sold from the same store I bought mine from (Pro Music in Markham).

I don't get it.

I think they do it sort of like Amazon.

Damn. I wish I hadn’t missed out on that fuzz. The guitar player I used to play with had one, and it sounded like poop, in the best kind of way.

I love shitty pedals and even I can't hack that one hah. It was tempting at the price still though, but I decided to just get the tr2. The blues driver was already out of stock last night or I would have got it as well.

Does Best Buy have sales like this often? Or are they stopping carrying a line? I've actually never looked at their site, and I never go in the stores anymore.

Hence the reason for the sale. I give them 2 years. Amazon is killing the retail electronics sector.

I don't even have a huge aversion to stores, I just always hated both Best Buy and Future Shop. It's been so long since I've been in the one in my town that I had no idea they had gear in store.
