.... but don't expect too much! Last time I was in, there were some 'potentially' nice horns, but most needed work that wasn't reflected in the ticket price.stitch said:If you decide to visit Windblowers, you should drop in at Toot Sweet as well - it's just across the road!
You are likely to get a better price without part exchange, ie more likely to negotiate a discount which is fair enough IMO as (a) the shop gets the money sooner and (b) they don't have to find space for your old horn.Michael Ward said:My 2 part ex's at Bradford were fair. Watch out for shops hiking up the price if you do have an instrument to dob in.
It might be, but the people at Bradford Woodwind Exchange are very decent sorts and will give probably give you a discount if you ask and they are able. You will also be able to build up a relationship with a great dealership that also has a repair service on site, so you might find that what you don't save will pay other dividends in the long run. They have a lot, and I mean a lot, of horns and you can spend all day trying them out. You can't do that on line, they don't bring you cups of tea on line either.However, is it cheaper to buy it online? It could save me lot of money.
