Re: Price sharing etiquette

As someone that used to word in a retail music store, I'd have to say that 
couldn't be more wrong.  Do you have any idea what the markup on a piece of
musical equipment is?  How about less than 20%.  In a high compatition
situation, it is usually as little as 10 or 5%.  Where they get you is for
excessories and sheet music.  Anyway, next time you mail order something
cheap, just think about the day that there wont be a local music store to 
and check stuff out in.
