    I fucking hate them!
    In the past they have sent me the wrong record, sent me a very scratched record and once I bought a promo and ended up getting the full release a few weeks later.
    Avoid like chlamidia!

    Disagree. They fucked me around over the D-Bridge LP which really pissed me off. Brought it off em, recieved it, one of the tunes on there (coincidentally my favourite one off the album as well) had a malformation on it near the beginning of the track that caused it to skip. Sent it back asking if I could get a replacement, they told me it was their last one and it was out of press (fair enough) but then told me that it worked fine on their deck and that I should probably change my needles. Changed my needles, didn't work. Tried it on a mate's deck, still didn't work. Took it into my local record shop to try it out, still didn't work.

    By this point it's been about a month since I bought it. I can't really ring them up and ask for a refund cause I don't have the receipt any more. So I have to find another fucking copy of the same goddamn LP for 1 tune. None of this would have been a problem if they'd just refunded me instead of lying and saying it was fine. I don't like being lied to, especially over something as expensive as a 4 piece LP where if one track that you like is fucked, then you essentially have to spend another £20 just to get a working one.
    Boo to Catapult. Won't be using them again.

    Yeah thats gay, spose everyone has different experiences n shit that puts em off places which is fair enough. Only reason I use Catapult is that I know the guys there quite well so I'd rather give them my business and I know I can trust them and they always sort me out.

    Different strokes for different folks ;)

    Don't you know it! I like to mix things up personally, mostly use the local store but I've also used Redeye and Mirage in the past and I've got nothing but good things to say about them.

    I reckon its the other way round... you got lucky!

    HTFR really are useless cunts. The customer service is shit & the delivery times are bollox.

    I'm suprised they're as successful as they are really, i dont know anyone who still gets stuff from them coz they have all had problems with HTFR in the past.

    Still, the deals on equipment can be pretty good & that little catalogue they send in the post every few months makes for good readin on the shitter. And the cover of it makes perfect roach. lmao

    HTFR = Bunch of Douches

    Hate the cunts, (when i was still a bit of a n00b with Djing n shit) I had a dodgy mixer with shitty connections which cause loads of feedback and hum whenever I mixed, which made Eqing a nightmare, I didnt realise it was a shit connection at the time, so I went to HTFR to buy something to fix it, They insisted a "Hum Destroyer" and a pair of gold plated Phono to Jack leads would stop all my problems, Cost me about £45 in total, Didnt sort anything out at all.

    Turns out it was a dodgy connection that a bit of soldering wouldve fixed for pratically nothing, and yet not one of the HTFR staff even suggested that mightve been the problem- seems pretty obvious to a decent enough DJ/ person with a bit of know how, They blatently robbed me for a sale :/

    They also have a pretty shitty record collection n all.

    Definately Tempest for me.

    Only bought something from them once. It was the only place I could find "The Third Stage EP" - Culture Shock. Took quite a while to get to me but nothing was wrong with it. However I continue to hear bad things about them and will not use them againg in the future.

    Fan of Chemical:D
