I ordered a mute from a national mail order music company for $10.95 or thereabouts. The shipping cost $7.95. The mute came US Mail with no postage amount on it. I took it to the post office and asked how much this cost to send? Their answer was around 50 cents. when I queried the company about this they said that the shipping is based on item price and so-called handling. The mute works as advertised, I love it, but no store or Luthier locally had any.
Has anyone else encountered anything like this?
