    Hows it going?

    When I was looking around for a bass earlier this year I came across this guy:

    Andrew Pitts
    doublebass and violoncello maker
    Andrew Pitts Double Bass s.r.o.
    Mecislavova 155/5
    Prague 4, 140 00
    Czech Republic
    phone: 00420-775-294971
    email: apitts@volny.cz
    www.doublebass.cz

    He's an American luthier living over there. Very friendly and helpful. Give him a try

    I've tried the website but couldn't work. Is he still there?

    Weird, yeah I just checked and it's not working this end either.

    He was there up until the end of February anyway, I was regularly emailing him then and the website worked too. Try emailing him anyway I'd say, he was very prompt to reply to my many many many queries.
     
  5. These are the two best bass luthiers in Prague:
    Miroslav Slustik, ph. (+420) 222 583 037
    Jeseniova 125

    Petr Zdrazil, www.petrzdrazil.com

    Usually they have some instruments for sale. You can also visit a shop with many basses of various quality: Atelier Paganini, Spanelska str. (near Vaclavske namesti - the very centre of town)

    Good luck, Jaromir
