Was there last year. Can't tell you about the specific items you mentioned but my impression was that things were around 15% to 20% cheaper. At least the items I looked at. Bought an Epiphone Electric Guitar and saved around £60. The shop was really keen to sell and the service was excellent. They did not have the one I wanted and got one to delivered from another branch some 200 miles away the next day for me. How's that for service.

Remember to take the following into consideration, before you purchase,as these suggestions may prove a deciding factor on any return to the UK. Warranties not transferable,Credit card consumer rights not applicable, import duties, possible extra baggage allowances and airport/aircraft security. Remember that certain computer related items may have an export/import restriction imposed.

Sounds bad, but that bargain and few pounds/dollars saved, can turn out to be a problem after you have that great purchase.

I forgot about the Sales Tax, You can add 15% to all the prices quoted (Ontario) 8% Government + 7% provincial.
