I am planing to buy a DP from an online store that is based in US and have my stuff shipped to Switzerland. The price of the instruments here are sky high. So even I have to pay for shipping and tax, it is going to be cheaper than getting an instrument here.

Can you guys recommend any good, reliable, and trust worthy online music stores that do international shipping? I only know 2 shops... 1. Music123, 2. Playground Music

But I don't really know if I can trust them...

Also, are there usually sales for Musical instruments after Christmas? If there are, I will wait for that. But if not, I will just get it now.

Thanks guys

You can't go wrong with Sweetwater.com. They do a very good job of customer support and I know they do International trade.

I have nothing to do with them except as a satisfied customer.

Please bear in mind that you may be required to pay import duties and VAT taxes. Check with the Swiss authorities on what the rules are to avoid disappointment.

They certainly have the best customer service in the business. But typically the reason the prices are so high outside the US is the taxes and import duties.
