Travelling with a vibraphone to BRAZIL
Hey everyone, I am new to the site and pretty new to the vibraphone. I am excited to be able to get some ideas and learn from this site.
I have dual citizenship and have been living in Brazil for the past five years. I studied in highschool with Jason Adasiewicz in chicago but stopped when i moved to brazil in 2009. I just got an M55 while in the states working this summer and want to bring it back with me to Brazil.
So far, my plan is to take the bars inside a carry on mini suitcase with me, and then package the frame in one excess check in andd the resonators in another. Has anyone travelled oversears with their vibes? I am pretty worried about customs stopping me once I arrive in Brazil, so I'd appreciate any experience with any similar situations.
