    Default Dealer Pricing?

    Hey everyone,

    Where can I find a site with dealer prices for pro audio gear? I'm just curious about what kind of markup we're paying for at local auth. dealers.

    Thanks!

    I use those sites, too. But I was looking for non-upcharged item prices. Basically, I want to know what the authorized dealer pays the manufacturer for the product.

    I suspect we're paying between a 30 and 40 percent markup. Some places less than others.

    You'll be seriously lucky to be able to find that out ... I daresay each dealer pays a subtly different price as well, depending on volume discounts, past deals etc.

    hahaha nice idea but i doubt youŽd have enough money to get good pricing since youŽd have to order more than just one item of each

    x2 if i have the full amount i call them up and they get me a steal of a deal.
    if i need to make a few payments and dont want to pay interest(or put on a credit card) i use zzsounds. they do a 4-8 month play as you pay program. their prices are low as well.

    with retail bigger the chain is the better margins they have bcthey buy in bulk at corporate and supply to their stores. one good thing about the internet or certain retailers is, you might pay a tad more but their return policy or warranty is what makes me people pay the extra.

    I agree. They definitely can get you a pretty good deal and are by far the lowest prices around if you call. That's who I buy my stuff from usually.

    BUT! Still looking for those dealer prices. Really just to see what kind of upcharges we're paying for these products.

    Any dealers on the forum care to share??
