Excellent point, and I had thought about bringing that up, but I simply don't understand why the SKB rep didn't explain this to Tim, if that's their situation. I do rep work for Hercules, but Hercules doesn't sell direct. To purchase the products I'm showing, you have to go to one of our dealers. At MBLV09, as in previous years, our dealer has been Six Star D.J., also an exhibitor at the same show. This year, our presence was within the Six Star booth. In previous years, we had our own booth, and I would direct those interested in buying to the Six Star booth. SKB could have "partnered" with a retailer at the show, or have "show specials" pre-arranged with an online dealer (perhaps), and direct customers to them, for orders, instead of saying "tough nuts, we only have one item (each) to sell"
I was preplexed why the SKB rep didn't just say **Tim, we only have 1 per at the show. But if you want to buy 3-4-5 of these, I'll take down your information and they will get back to you next week...**
