    Compadres', I am going to be in Miami and Ft.Lauderdale next week and as always would like to visit some of the music stores down there. Can anyone recommend the stores that would best cater to a bassist in both of these cities? I would rather go on the word of a fellow bassist instead of letting my fingers do the walking. Thanks

    I go to South Florida all of the time. There are a lot of GC of course. There is ..well I don't know if it is still there but Mars' Headquaters is in FD. I don't know of any all bass stores there. I would like to know if there are any.

    There's MAE in Ft lauderdale which is a guitar type shop but the staff were good to me in 2000 when I went. It's off one of the junctions on the I95. Unfortunately there's at least 8. (I'll get directions).

    However if you go to Orlando there's http://www.basscentral.com I've technically never been, I went to Beavers apartment and me and the Grasshopper had to move stuff around the furniture the dog had just urinated on. It was the highlight of my holiday (thats the real word for vacation).

    MAE is great, no doubt, but if you're driving from Atlanta to south FL, you MUST stop in Orlando...

    ...we promise, no dog urine soaked furniture in the store now!

    :p

    :D
