When you call my local GitarMart, there is a super aggressive guy in recording. I asked him if they had an XLR gender changer so I could plug into a remap box, and he went into this super long comparison of cables and all these things I could get to plug into my reamp box. He was like "ill have them all up here on the counter when you come in."
I walked in that hellhole and grabbed the gender changer off the rack and bought it in front of him. He acted surprised that was all I needed, and I told him again that I just needed to reamp, and from the blank look on his face I realized (surprise) he had no idea what that actually meant.
