Why don't Thomann make a full printed catalogue?
Thomann currently stocks over 200,000 products and as an authorised dealer for all notable brands we have access to over 100,000 additional items and over 1,000,000 different types of books and sheet music. Believe us... it is not easy to keep the prices up-to-date and promise great service standards for that many products! (not even with over 1,000 people at Thomann).
Another reason for us not to offer a full catalogue is that we want to guarantee the same service-level throughout the year! With regular mailings every week and a volume totally depending on the current work load of our service and shipping departments, we can guarantee a stable service and availability without such things as a "catalogue season" where we have to hire untrained staff.
With our online catalogue (35,000 products) and our HotNews mailing list, we are able to give you a quick overview of what's currently hot in Europe's music business.
By the way... if we printed out the information that is stored in our cyberstore, this would be a catalogue with more than 20,000 pages!
