    They are all in that area.

    I have to say.... I've been to Paris and shopping for a bass is about the last thing I'd ever think to do there......

    Well, the original poster is from South Wales. . . where I assume there are even fewer music stores. . .

    JP's right, California Basses is the biggest shop. But there are a few others just near.
    Just ask for thoes two streets: ''rue de Douai'' and ''rue Victor Massé'' as many of the Parisian bass/guitar shops are there. That is in the ''Pigalle area'' anyway.

    I am going to Paris on July. I want to sell my Tobias there, thought I may get more for it there. Anyone knows a few places that buy used hi-end basses in Paris?

    As said, 90% of shops are Rue Massé and Rue de Douai.
    it used to be the biggest music quarter in Europe with 70+ shops but the internet happened, nowadays there are maybe 20 left.
