Re: Going to Istanbul
We have an apartment in Kusadasi on the south west coast of Turkey. Last time we were there I asked about prices in the local music shop and the differential between UK prices and local Turkish prices was minimal...certainly not emough for me to carry them back.
The factories may have some deals though. I'm sure someone here has been to buy cymbals in Istanbul.
You should post pictures when you get back.
OK, OK It's back to rudiments for me! I'll be back in a few months
