Translating our catalog … La traducción de nuestro catálogo … Übersetzen in unseren Katalog

¿Sabías que puedes traducir nuestro catálogo en línea en más de 100 idiomas diferentes ? Probablemente no es ni de lejos perfecta, pero tal vez va a cerrar la brecha un poco mejor que nuestro personal pueda cuando se trata de explicar las políticas y las descripciones de los productos a una persona que no habla Inglés .

Did you know that you can translate our on-line catalog into over 100 different languages? It probably isn’t anywhere near perfect but maybe it will bridge the gap a little better than our staff can when it comes to explaining policies and product descriptions to a non-English speaker.

Wussten Sie, dass Sie unseren Online- Katalog in über 100 verschiedene Sprachen übersetzen ? Es ist wahrscheinlich nicht annähernd perfekt, aber vielleicht wird es die Lücke ein wenig besser als unsere Mitarbeiter überbrücken kann , wenn es um Politik zu erklären und Produktbeschreibungen zu einer nicht- englischen Sprecher kommt .

At the top of the catalog page, in the middle is a button that looks like this:

translate button
Click on that and a dialog box will come up and allow you to select the page and the language you would like to translate to – and hopefully that makes doing business with us just a little easier!

It is that time of year again … and we don’t mean the holidays.

Pad prices are going up, most pad prices will be increased by December 1st.  In addition there are changes related to pad sizes and types that may no longer be grouped together and priced the same.  We are updating the pad pricing page from our price guide and will begin to include the updated pricing with your orders very soon.  In the meantime PLEASE feel free to call, fax or email any pricing inquiries!  Remember, all prices are subject to change but we are happy to quote a price for one item or a hundred, and written price quotes are good for 30 days.

Like the flip book but miss your paper catalog?

We understand that change isn’t easy … that’s why when we chose an option for our online flip book catalog we chose one that might be able to mimic some of the things we know you do with our catalog.  You can bookmark pages, you can make notes, you can copy pages, all things you are probably doing with your paper catalog.  Do you have your customer number written on your paper catalog?  Add it to your flipbook catalog with a note!  See the screenshot below for tips on how to add notes.

Help me find a part in the catalog …

In response to our customer that replied, “Please make it easier to find a part number in the catalog! Sometimes I need to backwards reference my part numbers, this would be a huge help!”

In the upper right corner of the flip book catalog you will see a small search box (quickly get to that box by hitting CTRL+F) … enter your part number or keyword in that box, hit enter and on the left side of your screen all potential matches for your search term will show in a “screenshot” list, choose the page you would like to go to and you will see your search term highlighted within the page.

Alternatively the left side of the screen will always contain a thumbnail tab and a search tab … Happy searching!!

Catalog Update

Allied Supply Co. publishes an updated catalog every about every 5 years. It is once again time to get all the information we can from you, our customers, as to what you want to see added to our 268 page catalog. Now there are many that wonder why we still take the time and incur the cost of publishing such a large catalog. Well many repair technicians do not have a computer readily accessible at their bench nor do they have the time to boot it up and then search for the part they need. Because of this, we publish a catalog and will for the foreseeable future.

We ask that at anytime you come across a part, supply, case, new tool that you think might be of value to another technician, that you let us know and we will look into the possibility of adding it to our extensive inventory. If it’s a new tool and we deem that it can be made by us and that it has use to other technicians we may even name the tool after you or will credit you for the idea. (You will be “famous” but not rich, unfortunately)

For those parts that we add between publications of our large catalog, we publish an annual Parts and Price Supplement that comes out each spring. In it we have the most recent pricing available for all our parts, tools, cases and supplies as well as additional pages of new items that we have found to help you be a better repair technician and service instruments that are new to the market.

We hope that you have ideas of new things that can help others and that you will share them with us, as we truly want to be the one company that no music store or repair shop can do without.
