Black Sand Cables Group Buy
« on: February 08, 2007, 09:25:39 AM »
John at Black Sand Cable has offered to provide a discount for his cables if we order as a group.

I'll be glad to orchestrate the order, and then distribute all the orders to each person.  I'm trying to keep this as simple for John as possible in hopes of a better discount.  I'm also sending him a T-shirt for our gratitude! :)

I think it's tremendous that John is doing this and I think it's a great opportunity to get his already excellent-value cords at a discount!

So, step up if interested.... and tell your friends.  I'd like to at least gauge interest now and see if we have enough interest to get a dozen cords ordered.  Reply here with questions and email orders to BSCGB@AudioNervosa.com

Thanks,
Carl

OK, I've gotten the official go-ahead from John and he's offering a GREAT discount on his cables.  If you've EVER been on the fence, now's the time to try these wonderful cables.

I'm very excited about this and hope everyone can benefit from John's generosity.  So... here are the details...
Discounts (on entire group buy quantity)
6 – 12 Cords 25% discount off the posted web-site pricing
13 – 30 Cords 30% discount off the posted web-site pricing
31 – 35 Cords 35% discount off the posted web-site pricing
35+ we will cross this bridge when we get there ;)

Note: You must be a member of AudioNervosa and include your member name if you email me, send Paypal, check, etc.


Payment and Shipping:
Shipping cost is $5 per cable up to 9-foot length.
All orders must be placed and money sent by March 9, 2007.
You can use paypal or a check to me.  

Please contact me by email, BSCGB@audionervosa.com and include your username in the subject and I will reply with payment details.
 
I will send 1 order to BSC for all orders.  In the US, I will distribute and ship all cables to the people who ordered them.  

Outside the US, the cords will be drop-shipped directly and BSC has offered free shipping in Canada!  (Others please contact me via PM or BSC for actual cost but you will get a 50% discount!)

Once I have received all the cables from BSC, I will send an update and let everyone know that I'll be shipping them.  Please be patient.  This is a 1-month group-buy.  I dragged it out a little because it's fairly rare and I wanted to make sure everyone knew about it.

I will update this thread as new information arises.

Thanks,
Carl

I wish you fellas the best of luck w/ the group buy.  I also wish I could help out, but at the moment, about the only place I could put another PC is on my frig.  :lol:

That said, when the time comes that I *do* get another component or build another system (a distinct possibility), all PCs will be Silver Refs.  

John is the man, and his cables are amazing.

If you doubt it, try it.  Only your bank account will regret it.

Yes!  Basically you'll send me your order for whatever you want... and I will put them on the big order I send BSC...

I will need the type, size, and color (if applicable) and then your name, address, etc.  I will reply with instructions for sending payment.  I will need payment by early March.

Please contact me by email, BSCGB@Audionervosa.com and include your username in the subject.  That would REALLY help.

Thanks,
Carl

Some clarification, Carl. So if we buy a total of 30 Violets, plus one Silver, that would be 35% off on each of them?

That's the way I understood it from John at BSC....  As the size of the order goes up, the amount of the discount goes up.  So, if we get 31 cables total, regardless of which type, there would be a discount of 35% on all of them! :)

I'll send John a PM just to be sure but I'm 99% sure about this.

Thanks,
Carl

I'm not paying any attention to what the actual model of the cord is, only the quantity involved. You guys can mix and match however you like. Doesn’t matter to me at all.

For those looking for a Silver Reference MKV this may be your chance to get a great deal on one. 35% off a Silver Reference MKV would be under what they go for on auction at Audiogon!  :D

I might be interested in 2 or 3 Silvers, depending on some other sales I have going, but I'd really like to see it get to at least 30 off, preferably 35.  Tom
