Friends of the Orchestra

Students who are looking to start their own band or orchestra should look into the benefits of buying wholesale and shipping right from a distributor. Buying instruments or music equipment in bulk, and then using a wholesale drop shipping service, like Doba, could be a good way to save money in the long-run. Using an online service to help with your shipping could save you a lot of time and money.
