Sax on the Web Portal - Evaluating a Used Saxophone For Purchase (video)

  • Evaluating a Used Saxophone For Purchase (video)

    Hey guys,

    I made this video a week or so ago. I wish I'd thought to visit this section first, as I am sure there are things in the stickies at the top that I could have integrated into it. But anyhow, here it is, hopefully with the visual stuff added this is helpful to use yourself or to link to a friend/student who starts asking questions about buying a horn. Also it was one of my first ever edited videos (typically I just do one long unscripted take, this was from a script and I tried my hand at simple editing) and I screwed up the very first cut, by forgetting to take off the first few seconds! But I've got crap internet and I'm too lazy to re-upload it. So enjoy a few moments of awkwardness before the video starts.

    I also copied the script here in case you'd like to read it as well, but I ad-libbed a few things in the video that aren't in the script so watch the video if you can.

    The short answer is it depends on the customs officer. Luxury brand goods have the highest possibility of getting taxed. Mouthpieces I've had sent here never got customs fee on them. Also if it's...

    Of course it is taxable.

    EVEN id this is not necessarily an IMPORT tax.

    For instance, the EU VAT is NOT an import tax.

    The Japanese Consumption tax (8%) is also not an import tax.
