With few exceptions, commissions on bonds are built into the price. If you are looking for a particular issue, check with more than one broker. If you are comparing bonds, judge them on yield to maturity and yield to least favorable call. Bonds should be bought and owned, not traded; worry about what YOU get, not what the broker gets, and figure you will own it until it matures or gets called away, paying you a nice chunk of interest twice a year on the way. Good luck!
