I'm assuming you didn't give him the right to put those pictures on his website? I smell something fishy...

Why shouldn't they have the right to post those photos?

Most LW IEM have a name or SN on them unless you ask to leave it off, so it's good these don't identify whom they belong to.

UPDATE.....

Sent my livewires to TN Feb 6th from Ontario, Catherine Neal followed up with me the next day to say that she received them and that they will be about 2 weeks.

I emailed her today to find the progress and she told me that they will be shipping them out Feb 19th, and there is NO problems.

So far so good.

Catherine is great, hopefully i have nothing to complain about later.

I got home from UK... Long fast week... im beat.
The LW never made it to my house like i was promised.. They were to be here before i left last week then i was promised they would be here in time for my GF to bring them when she flew over to meet me...

So they never showed up as promised.. It was frustrating..
I understand that John may be having issues and that is rough in bizz....but dont make a promise that you cant keep.. it devalues your word. I dont believe a word he says now.. and that is sad to me.. im sure he is a good guy.. but he needs help and someone that is real good at CS to remake an image...

Anyway i got an email that he would ship them to the UK but i already told him to ship them here to me home.. and i just wondered if he wanted to buy more time....

So i told him once again to ship them to my home since i dont want them showing up late at my hotel, then missing me once,then getting reshipped to NYC where i will be next week.. its self defeating.

SO lets see if i get them soon.. I was told in the email that they were in house in CA office as of yesterday..... So if they are FEDEXed today i will have them by Monday... just in time for my NY trip next week..

We will see.. I just hope they fit right at this point... I need another cable as a spare but cant get in touch with him to leave a message of what i need,, and what color am i getting.. did he get the email where i asked for a color change?....

The shame is, i could have sold over a dozen sets of LW for him the past month but the people that am working with are pros, and saw what i was going through and turned away.. Its a shame.. i wanted to help a small business get off the ground... oh well..


You have no idea how much i want to come to this forum and say.. You know what. John pulled through and went above and beyond.. he did exactly as what he said... The LW sound and fit better than anything that i have used.. and they worth the wait..

That can still happen.. i just hope that this time they were promised that they will really show up.. because i think they have a great idea and product from what i have heard of them.;

Have you considered getting them from the Nashville office? I know a lot of people that have gotten them from them and from what they tell me they seem to have their act together and get things out on time.
post #3402 of 3897
I have considered that.. but the CA office keeps stringing me along and i have basically been a sucker. yup i fell for it ..

I got an email the other day from the CA office saying he physically has my IEMs in the office on his desk that day and to give him an address to ship them to my hotel in the UK...
Honestly,i think it was BS from him... he could always say they were lost in shipping and that will buy him more time...its not like i live in the UK and i could wait until the end of time for them to get there..
All i want is the truth so i can plan ahead....thats all i asked of him... I wish i paid with CC so i could do a charge back.. but i paid with personal check..

I told him to FedEx them to my home address since i am home the next few days before i have to go to NY for a few days to do a session...

That was Thursday when i emailed him back.. if he really had them he could have FedEx'd them on Friday.. and i should have them here today .. being Monday.. The FedEx guy has not made it here yet.. mmmmmmmmm

I hate to be a whiner.. but my job depends on good ears.. and i was given promise after promise of delivery date... and i waited all day for them to show at my office/studio before my last trip, when i had stuff to do...and they never showed up..

Now i was told they were on his desk as of last Wednesday @ 4:47 pm PST and he will ship them... im still waiting for fedex... i have to hit the road again late next week for a few days then back home..

my UM2 that i have been using suddenly got a bad wire so im down to a pair of old shure E2s.. so im a bit Angy at this point...

do i go and buy another pair or UM2s or get a pair of futuresonics to hold me another month or so.. or will the Livewires show up today?
I think i have been pretty patient amongst the BS /CYA stories that i have gotten from LW and him not responding to any questions that i put forward,,,

I know that if i pulled my order from John when i got my first BS story and sent it to Nashville i would have been up and going weeks ago..It seem Nashville is much better....
Im from NYC and i have heard it all. but the CA office is bringing new meaning to BS...

Lets see if they do show up today .. after all they were in his office the other day just waiting for me to give him an address to ship them to me in the UK when i was there..
If not , all i can do is pull my order... and am looking at a professional deal with westones custom line.... Im done and dont appreciate the stall stories form that person.
So i will report back soon folks..

Its Miller Time

dual post.. ooops
post #3404 of 3897
Ok. .here is the latest.. I called to speak with John today to see if he actually did ship Friday.. he is not in the office today..... but Martha called me back.. they said they will ship them today and i will have them by Wednesday...mmm i have heard that before.. in fact i have heard that more than one time.... good thing he did not ship them to me when i was in the UK.. otherwise they would have been following me around the globe.

I also spoke with Kathleen in the Nashville office.. they have nothing to do with what is going on in CA.. and Kathleen really seems to have it all together and knows her stuff.
SO yes perhaps i am a sucker to not want my money back today!


Like i said i would prefer the truth of a late delivery date in the beginning... than to be given excuse after excuse and new promises after a deadline has passed... that has now affected my job as a pro bass player.....thats why i am frustrated.... and thank God for the Forum to express the concerns of buying public.

Lets see if they get here Wednesday...

Hey,
I've been trying to contact John or the CA office, John's cell didn't reply (so far) and I tried his email and the new email given on their new site, but never got a reply.

how can I contact them?

..assuming that's even possible haha
