I mentioned it in my introduction but Im wondering why the European market pays such outlandish prices for musical gear. I looked up mouthpiece prices and many of you pay nearly as much for an out of the box stuffy Link than I generally charge for a hand faced and customized piece (pardon my shameless plug). So what's the snag...is it greed or taxes...or both. Ive wondered this for a while and found it very odd. It has to make GAS very painful!
