    Yep! If you are in the USA best to buy from Australia at the moment. The AUD = .70 USD.
    1,300.00 AUD = 918.209 USD

    Yes! I'm jealous!!

    The Ozwinds site has been around for ages but has recently had a re-vamp and become very competative on cost, even for our Aussie pasos.

    On january first all yamaha saxophones jumped up by about 15% in cost because of the huge fall in the exchange rate. The reason you were qouted more might have been that soprano lover bought his yas-62II before the price rise and you were quoted afterward the price rise.

    Still I reckon $1700 is a great price for a 62II.

    Congrats soprano lover on the great bargin.

    I wish I could find that much of a steal on the oboes! The price on the Loree is still expensive but quite a bit cheaper than wwbw (too bad I dont want a loree!)

    I completed a deal with Dave @ "Junkdude" last fall. The price was great and the communication was prompt and accurate. I would not hesitate to deal with them again. Shipping to Canada was just as he described. The sax arrived in perfect condition and well set-up. He sells new saxes and has a nice variety of vintage horns. There is a 10M tenor on there that just keeps calling to me...
