    I wonder if anyone can help...I'm about to visit Washington DC and would like to treat myself to a new Bach Strad which are cheaper in the US.

    What would be the best place to go ?

    Thanks !

    You might like to investigate Chuck Levin's Washington Music Center 11151 Veirs Mill Road, Wheaton, MD 20902 USA - look it up on the net. Make sure you tell them that it is being exported - you save state sales tax - I guess about 8%.

    I agree with Ted, plus Washington Music generally has the lowest prices of any music shop.

    Ditto! In the area, I don't think you'll find a wider selection or better prices.
