    I am visiting Europe for a few weeks in August and I thought I would like to stop by some bass shops perhaps. I cant buy anything but thought it would be fun to play some basses from the motherland.

    I will be in Cologne, Germany for a while. I will also be in Switzerland for a short while, and will be around the Italian riviera and in Sicily.

    Got any recommendations? Thanks

    I know of 2 from the web;



    I am sure there are more but you will either have to ask when you get there or Google it..

    In Switz, I have a Friend in the Gtr. Dist Biz.. Musik Olar.. They may know of some shops. They are in Zurich I believe... Zolfingen?

    WOB has my Batchelder on loan from Biase in NY as well as dozens of Basses as good and better than that.

  4. Dave, my shop is only about 50km from Cologne, and there's Vektor-bass.de very close too. Between us we have about 30 basses you can try. Give me a call (number on the website) when you're in Cologne or pm me and I'll send you details on how to get here.
