So there I am, cruising the aisles at the local Cosco shop this morning (waiting for new tires to be mounted on Mrs's car...there is snow in the forecast for tomorrow). What do I spy? A display case holding one each of; Bb trumpet, clarinet, flute. The brand? "Atlantis". The place of manufacture? CUNNINGLY NOT PRINTED ON ANY OF THE MATERIAL AVAILABLE W/O OPENING THE BOXES! Now, maybe these are made elsewhere, but the labels on each box that said "Imported by" sure looked like the typical stuff that is stuck on all the other Chinese merchandise. Now, get this... the price! $249 Cdn per instrument!! For that much money you could get yourself a real instrument on Ebay (or the local pawn shop). I don't suppose they've actually improved the quality, do you? Guess I better put the notification out via a school music teacher I know that there are some "Christmas Gifts" that Grandma had better not buy! Jeepers, maybe I better check those Michelins and make sure they aren't Chinese too!
