    Ok, here's the deal, I'm looking for (West) European musicstores that sell hardware (Bridges/Tuners). I'm in the market for a new bridge (probably a Badass II) and new tuners.

    Why in Europe only?

    I don't have paypall and I don't feel very confortable with shipping stuff overseas (if this would be possible in the first place, since most US shops only accept creditcards). Most European stores accept money transactions, too.

    So, JMX, Chilipepper, Frank Martin (having read your tuner-experience :D ), Bruce and all the others, I'm asking your help.

    Cheers

    Thomann.de is probably the largest, but they have minimum order and fixed P&P around 20€ - perhaps if you get your friends to order some stuff too you can share the cost.

    Otherwise, perhaps your local/nearest shop would be the easiest place to order them?
     
  4. www.musicstore.de claim to be the largest. Both it and thomann appear to have limited selection. www.gmf.se is good but only in swedish

    Thanks for the help so far guys.

    Maybe I can work something out with someone who does have paypall.

    Thomann sends out a big catalogue - printed on paper - that seems to have more stuff...?

    www.gmf.se does have a decent selection... if you want to have a look you can find it at "Stall, svaj och sadlar" -> "Basstall" (= "bridges, vibratos and nuts" -> "bass bridges"). I believe they'll ship to Belgium (can't see why they wouldn't), though I don't know how much they'd charge for shipping.

    Looks good, although I'll have to dig up the exchangerate calcuter. Swedish ain't easy either, but I'll have a look at it.
