Buying over phone discount?

I'm just curious as to whether stores like novamusik are more likely to give a discount when orders are made over the phone rather than online? I'm sure I've heard people mention that... I assume it's more likely for high end stuff?

I got a discount on my LP this way through novamusik and they were also willing to do a better price on the MEK but it was still significantly cheaper used. It doesn't hurt to ask "What's the best price you can give me on...?"

It doesn't matter how you contact them...the key is just asking. Nova has given me discounts via e-mail and phone... and so has analogue haven and sweetwater. It depends on the item, but usually it is about 10-15%.

bought something online from novamusik, shipping was going to be ridiculous, talked to them on email and they halved the shipping cost. very cool people!
