#beginquote# #beginquote# The biggest problem with buying a no-name instrument, or a supposedly new instrument at a price that ridiculously low is that you will quite likely have trouble getting it repaired. I have had students purchase instruments over ebay or in local stores that have paid very little, but when it comes time to do a repair or adjustment on it the local music store cannot get the parts! The bottom line is that you get what you pay for. If you are going to buy a musical instrument somewhere other than a reputable music store then always ask at your local repair shop if they can get parts and/or fix it if it breaks or goes out of alignment. --------------------------- Chad Criswell Altoona Community Schools Teachers Helping Students At:
he said. There is no way an American company makes an instrument and sells it for $77. That wouldn't cover the labor costs. There ARE, however, American companies who are buying Chinese/ Korean instruments and putting thier name on the them and selling THEM at relatively low prices. Selmer for one. They STILL aren't $77. More like $450 (trumpets). And they ain't that good. #endquote#
