Can't say I'm all that sad to see the behemoth cut down to size if it means we see a return to the days of smaller local Sydney music stores - yeah it's a bummer that peeps job security is in question, but most of allans/bh gear has been pretty damn pricey ever since that merger.

They'd driven me away as a customer in recent years, kind of got tired having to haggle with them for anything close to fair price.

I moved to the north burbs a while ago and stumbled across Turrumurra music as being my awesome local - could use a little more floor space, but they've good online prices and seem like a bit more of an honest mob.
