I've ordered from Impulse quite a bit in the past, and also will in the future, and here's my take on them. The people there are very cool to talk to on the phone....they're excited about the music and have a lot to say if you want to talk music, or ask about any of the artists. Their prices can be a little bit high at times, but they're also cheaper in other instances. My biggest gripe, and it sounds like what's happening to you, is that they take forever to get your cd's out to you....and they always have an excuse, like it's their European contact who's holding them up, or whatever. Thus, unfortunately for them, I try to use other vendors before I use Impulse basically because I want my cd's as soon as possible....I don't want to wait. If I do use them, I ask them if they have that cd in stock. If they don't, and I can get it elsewhere, I'll do that. If they have it, I'll go with them. I like to use AOR Heaven, because their prices are good and he gets them out immediately...problem with them is that it's coming from Germany, and I live in the US, so even if he sends them out that day, I'm not getting the discs for a week. I also like Perris, but they're the most expensive out there. That leaves me with Terrible Ted's, who I'm trying to use and see what they're like. Anyways, back to Impulse, I really like the people there because of their excitement, knowledge and willingness to talk about the music that I love, or the music scene in general, but their service is what really holds them back, unfortunately. In your case, you mentioned that you placed a big order. My guess is that they have some of the cd's but are holding the whole order up until they get the rest in. I'd see if they can send you what they have.

I would like to know if anyone can give me an idea on Impulse Music in the USA. I ordered a SUBSTANTIAL amount of CD's from them about 7 weeks ago and apart from an order confirmation (and after sending them repeated emails) I have no response and no CD's. I'll be ringing them tomorrow but would like to know what sort of people I'm dealing with here. I am starting to wonder whether I'll get them at all. I'd also be interested if people have got CD's from them what the turnaround time was. Thanks.
