    Hey... I was wondering if anyone knew of a good setup shop in the Buffalo, NY area. I need to have a new sound post installed and I'm a little weary of just trying the yellow pages. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Thank you very much for the reply. I'll call around tomorrow and see what I can figure out. Rochester would be a bit of a haul for this adventure, but when I'm in the market for another upright, I'll definately come and check it out Thanks again!

    Hey Mr. Phil,

    It's your bass, and you want to take good care of it. Paul and Jesse up in Rochester did a great job on my old bass when I was living in Buffalo. It's only a bit more than an hour and well worth it. Otherwise, your next best bet is heinls in Toronto and I don't know what getting over the border with a bass is like right now.

    Boyd is an excellent violin guy, and I know a dude who takes his Testore Bass to him for minor tweaks, but I would go with Paul if I can.

    What ever happened to Mr. Bresciani?

    His website is down and his principal position is up for grabs. What gives?
