    I wanted to know if anyone knew of a place that I can go (within a days drive) to try out a variety of basses (Lakland, Sadowsky, Yamaha, Modulas, and Warwick)? I live near Des Moines, Iowa.

    There's a MARS in Omaha, 128 miles from you. Also in Olathe, Kansas, 195 mile. Also Guitar Centers in Bridgeton and Crestwood Missouri, Arlington Heights, Burbank, Chicago, Highland Park, and Villa Park, Illinois. Then you have Edina and Twin Cities, Minnesota, and Hollywood, California.

    There are Guitar Centers and Mars Musics in the Twin Cities (a few different locations around the cities). From Des Moines, that isn't too far, especially considering the fact that you will have access to several high end bass companies' products.;)

    There are also tons of other shops around the cities. I would suggest going to the websites of the bass manufacturers, and use the dealer locator that most of them have. That should give you an idea of what is where.
