    I am planning a trip to london to see my sisters new flat and was wondering if anyone knew and places i can go and try out some basses, especially warwicks?
     
  2. Denmark Street. It's in between Tottenham Court Road and Leicester Square
     
  3. Do not go to the Bass Celler in Denmark Street. It is run by a short fat bald obnoxious person [the short fat and bald bit is a description of the person not an insult!] and should be avoided.

    The best two places in London are the Bass Centre [now House of Guitars] in Brune Street near Liverpool Street Station don't know web site

    The Bass Gallery in Camden Town

    Both places have a wide range of gear and the people are friendly.

    Regards

  4. www.basscentre.com for the Bass Centre website (surprising huh? ;))
    Matthew is right, those are the best 2 places to go to test basses.

    Just to say i totally agree with that, he's a ****...but he loves it :meh:

    If your down by denmark street you should check out Sound Control (underneath the Virgin megastore on oxford street) hundreds of guitars/basses/everything else, and the sales staff leave you to it - which always gets my vote.

    Good luck :bassist:
