Martin Powell said, <<How often do you recommend students to have their

instruments! Not what is best for the shops!>>

To heck with the other competing shops if they "insist" on charging more to
make more. If you are happy with the profit you squeeze out of the service,
then great! The students and parents will be grateful that you are an
honest business man.

Of course...I don't have my own business. So....
