    I just got my wheel in the mail from Gollihur Music. Yay!
    When the doorbell rang I was pretty excited. I was a little surprised when the mailman said there was a $15 fee from customs. I thought it seemed a bit high for GST (goods and services tax) which is sometimes charged at the border. Upon inspection of the customs form I noticed my wheel had been categorized under fishing reels hence the reason for this fee. I thought 'I guess they thought it was some kind of fishing reel' and then I read that the package was unopened so I figured they had x-rayed it and come to this conclusion. Then it dawned on me. The name in the product description- Bass wheel.

    LOL, that sounds familiar. I had someone from customs ask me why we were classifying fish as musical instruments. :p
