The Canadian dollar is at par with the US dollar. Big difference in prices between canadian and american online music stores. I think it would be a good time to order online from a US store. Also, I have family just on the other side of the border, about an hour drive. They would do me a favor and drive the gear to me. Also, I would save on international shipping and duty. 1 - Good idea? 2- My main question is I would lose out on the warranty. Is it that big of a deal?
