Re: Musictoyz.com (was Re: Electro-harmonix 16 second Delay reissue first impressions)

Personally, I don't order gear offline(mostly because I end up paying too
many additional cost to get it into canada, and I am a person who likes to
try before I buy).  People I know?  A few have read about bad experences
dealing with musictoyz, be it being treated terribly, or that they waited
8-12 months to get there gear from them(and msuictoyz ignoring request to
cancel orders and refund money).

A lot of guitarist webfourms have stories about dealing with musictoyz on
them, and I have no reason to NOT believe them.

I have no idea who ron is beyond a nice, informative site on EH.  I know
others experences with musictoyz.  If yours went smoothly, great.  maybe
they are changing there buisness habits.

Also, I probably missed the first posting about musictoyz, i tend to go 
without checking this fourm as I am not a EDP user, and am only really
interested in the posting about pedal loopers/upcoming shows.  I probably
missed it......
