    Vancouver, BC Canada
    Prussian Music on W. Broadway and Ward Music on Hastings are good places to start. I have seen DBs in those stores at one time or another. Give 'em a call. If you check out the yellow pages I am sure you will find what you seek.

    If you're thinking DB and Vancouver, you gotta be thinking about Gerard Ivan Samija.
