Ok, here's the deal. about 6 months ago I came across a Carlo Robelli 4 string at a Sam Ash Music store. I thought they were new since I havent heard of them before. I loved playing it and I bought it. Now about 6 months later, they still have the same models, and I havent seen them anywhere but Sam Ash. My question , where the heck can I find out more about these basses? I know they make voilins and guitars, but only at Sam Ash. Does anyone know a website, or store where they are made, or does another company make them? I really need to know, I am considering buying a new bass but there isnt a great choice at Sam Ash, and carlo robellis are perfect for me. Thank you very much! Thanks to TalBass also for having these forums!
