How to buy a Musical Instrument from anywhere in the world

How do I buy a musical instrument from South America? ...This is a common question we receive in our email inbox every week. 

Before the creation of our online store, TuCuatro, the process to buy a folkloric or exotic musical instrument from remote countries in Suoth America used to be extremely complicated.  First, you had to know someone from there that could speak the language, then he would be in need of contacting local manufacturers, musi instrument stores or acquaintances in order to find out the places where he could find a musical instrument for you.

Once found, he would be in need of packing the instrument and going to a local courier to ship it to you, but, because of the country regulations in most of the South American countries and excessive controls to export an instrument, forms to fill and bureaucracy, he would just find out it was almost nearly impossible to proceed with the shipping, 

Nowadays, TuCuatro has sealed an adequate contract with couriers to be able to offer to you the possibility of getting an authentic musical instrument from South America delivered directly at your doors! We've also set up processes with local authorities, so we can expedite the process of shipping an instrument, and made the whole thing almost seamless for you!

Now, TuCuatro can ship any instrument... to anywhere in the world!
