    Beaver is a *little* more than just a salesman. He's co-owner and founder of the joint...he can also play a note or two on the bass.

    Umm...no....

    I know that rumor's been rampant for years, but if you'd been around the Florida Top 40 Rock circuit in the early 80's, you'd have seen us in the same place a couple of times...so there's your proof!

    He does help me dispose of my extra income on occasion, though :eek:

    Beaver, has relieved me of some disposable cash also. Great company to trade with, whenever I call for info they always take time to help. They consistently seem to have a nice selection of instruments in-stock. While I'm in Florida for business this Fall I'm gonna check out the store first hand. (After re-reading that first sentence it should be noted that it's, "Beaver Felton").

    I posted this for the information of where to find lefthanded basses in stock, lefthanded players cant walk in a music store and try basses, most stores have 1 or 2 pro basses in stock if any at all.as far as advertising this thread was not posted for anything more then to inform my brother bass players of a great store to find rare basses and try them ,

    When Gard gets here, we need to ask him if he's ever been present when Beaver and Dave LaRue have a headcuttin' in the store.... That would scare the **** outta me.

    .....YO!!!

    Bass Central n da haus!!! :D

    Hey there bandrb2000!!! Have ya been to visit us yet? If not, make the drive - we got plenny o'lefties on the wall, and a few more hiding in boxes/cases.

    And trust me, Beaver & Co. have managed to relieve me of a great deal of not only disposable but also NON-disposable income! :eek: Still working off the NS upright (but believe me, it's worth the effort!!!).

    Hey Mike, how's that Raven Labs MDB-1 working out? If you decide to sell it again, we got 2 in stock when you realize you shouldn't have...again ;) Oh, and no, I haven't watched a "headcuttin' contest" between Dave and the Beav, I don't think I'd want to witness that, I'd probably sell my basses for kindling wood and start a new career at the Burger King up the street!!!! But, I did have the incredibly humbling experience of having Dave tell me I was gonna trade solos with HIM whilst studying with him a few years back :eek:.

    And TonyS, that Beaver has relieved ALL us males of disposable income in one way or another, hasn't it? ;) Hope I'm around when you are in for a visit, it's always good to put a face to a name from here. Met ka-tet a few weeks ago, great guy, and great player as well!
     
  12. Speaker of Beaver, has any one seen his videos?

    I see them around but never new if they were any good.

    Working out great! I had a gig on Thursday night where I used an active Lakland, a passive Lakland, and an upright...all through the same amp, and had matched volumes! That's pretty extreme for a little white box. Ju No See Me Sell Deez One!
     
  14. man, i want a good bass store!! :(

    Good deal, lemme know what day you're gonna be in (PM me or somethin'), and even if I ain't on the schedule I'll try to drop in and say hey. If ya come in on a Sat, you'll likely meet two fellow TB'ers - in addition to myself, Dirty Road Cola also works there on Sat's (y'all ask him 'bout his new toy, he's so proud.... ;) )

    Hey Gard, I just ordered my new Alembic MK standard through you guys at BC, Beav cut me a great deal. Tryin to talk my wife into a trip to Orlando. She thinks it's to see the Mouse's House. Little does she know (Insert evil laugh). Seriously, I'd love to stop by if I get down that way.
