Where to buy a Vibraphone in the UK and what to buy?
I've got to that point in life where I need to buy a Vibraphone. I program and play keyboards for a living and can afford something reasonably good. I'm going to be playing jazz and not working on more 4 to the floor!
However, I'm in the UK and I'm unsure of what to buy and then where from. Vibraphones seem to be in short supply here!
Firstly, I'm a bit worried about buying something old because if it needs repair or tuning - I won't know where to take it in the UK.
New, it seems like Musser are V expensive here, when compared to the states - and it's difficult to find a supplier.
Yamaha don't seem to keep any stock of their better Vibraphones in the UK - and I can't find out how small their frames break down to for transport.
Any thoughts welcome .....
