Thanks everyone for taking part in this poll. We indeed need a spares specialist of sorts but this business per se isn't as enticing as having the instruments in store as well. This is the reason why the instrument stores here double up as spares dealer. But you'd agree that for many of us, getting the spares for our instruments isn't easy. Most of the time, we couldn't get what we want & bringing them in from overseas sources wouldn't guarantee the procurement of the correct items.
