I went to my local music shop to enquire about buying a C trumpet Now, I've bought quite a lot of stuff off them over the last 20 years so I'm not unknown to them. They didn't have any information on list prices or availability but took my number to call me back. I heard.....nothing. So sent off an email to an interstate company looking for information. Nothing. I can only assume Australian traders are living very comfortably and have no need of customers with cash.
