cheap bass in denmark

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by vindy500, Mar 18, 2006.

  1. Hi guys on the 8th of may i leave my home country New Zealand to live in Denmark. now i play a cort c4z which i got cheap through my work (work in music shop) which i love but however is not going to be realistic to get it to denmark. now im going to be very poor when i get there so wont be able to buy a decent bass so im looking at just getting a real cheapie to last me the year that i'll be in denmark. We stock SX at my work which i have been impressed with but cannot find any sign that you can get them in dk. are there any equivalent type of brands that i could get there... or neighbouring countries... was looking at the harley bensons on some german site... has anyone got some ideas for me?
  2. Waltons.ie sell SX. Probably not the cheapest but worth a look at their site.
  3. did a google serach but no luck...what is waltons?

    Can't you remove the neck on your current bass for travel?

    Why aren't you just bringing the Cort?
  6. Waltons is a small shop in Dublin, Ireland. There not the best for prices but they do sell SX basses. You'd probably be better off buying an SX secondhand in the local market. Another option is to take a look at www.thomann.de , www.musicstore.com and www.rockshop.de These are large warehouse type stores that are nearly always a lot cheaper than local retail. The transport costs from these stores is normally less than €20. These stores have a large selection of basses in each price point.

    I hope that helps.

  7. will the neck be safe in a suitcase?
  8. I have brought several basses home with from US to DK without any problems,
    fitting them in the overhead. Just use a gig bag and be early at the gate.

    Anycase :

    There's "Den Blå Avis" for 2nd hand: http://www.dba.dk "Musikinstrumenter og Udstyr"->"Basguitarer"

    Local music store in Copenhagen http://www.aage.dk has a cort JB sunburst at 1295.-
    which should be around 330 kiwis...The cheapest I could find locally.

    I have purchased (and been to) www.thomann.de as somone mentioned, they are cheap
    well stocked and reliable but unfortunately also located near Nürnberg, almost 800 k's south
    of here so try before buy is difficult. I tried various harley bensons there but not enough to give
    an opinion...was definately playable though.

    Whats your budget ?
  9. the cort jb, we have one in my shop for $329, same price... im thinking i might try and take my bass seperately with the body in my bag and hopefully the neck will be ok in a large suitcase surrounded by clothes?

    You can bring your Cort in a flightcase or take it apart and mail it(just remember to pad it well;) its safety depends on your skills with bubble wrap and duct tape).I've done this several times as I've lived between DK and Australia for a number of years and have had to bring more than one bass with me.
    But that said, you can buy a cheap used one up here for the postage you pay to send it. In either case, there is no problem.

    the best idea i heard was take your case and fill it with some of your clothes ect and have your bass in a gig bag. If the person for whatever stupid reason wont allow a carry on (which on the plane can be stowed in numerous safe places if the overhead is full)...then check it in in the case.

    plan b ..well just remove the neck and clingfilm it with body ...and put it in a backpack.....check the gigbag in with clothes in it because you will need at least a gigbag in denmark....whats the problem??
  12. Ciao,

    Hello for a look at this,
    Harley Benton B-550 Black Progressive Series

    it took me a friend of Vicenza (near Venice) arrived from Germany in two days. It has remained in salt, has had and still has a lot of bass, but this has told me it has nothing to envy at Nathan East Yamaha. Electronics even looks like Yamaha's, and is very well finished and set.
    With € 149 + 20 shipping you arrive home and maybe because you work at a music store you do add to the orders that must do your boss and also save that.
    I've heard that Harley Benton's brand is from Thomann. If it is done in China by the Germans then the thing is safe.
