Musical instruments on amazon.com ???

  1. I couldnt believe what i saw today: a (beta) musical instruments store on amazon.com!
    and the prices! when ordering a 5 string bongo on amazon.com, I could save about 400-500 euros (incl. taxes).

    has anyone of you guys (+girls) ever bought musical instruments at amazon?

    best,

    I looked at that, but when you get to actually ordering - a lot of the stuff actually says that they won't ship outside the US... :meh:

    Also - you have to add on VAT and customs duty and you have the problem of what to do if it is damaged in transit or just a bad bass...?
     
  3. As far as I can tell, the Amazon store is just a shop-front for Music123/ WWBW. And yeah, there are a lot of brands they can't ship outside the USA, eg Fender, Yamaha.
