    Nothing big, just tweaking the setup.

    I am a bit south of St Pete, so Sarasota area works as well.

    thanks

    Violin Shop of Tampa. They used to have a location in Sarasota I think. Outstanding work on both of my basses.

    You're welcome. If you go to the main store in Tampa, there is a great BBQ restaurant directly across the street.

    I'm taking to the one in Sarasota, that is in the same building as a Whole Foods, far cry from a BBQ joint. :D

    + 1 for Violin Shop Tampa. I've been very pleased with the repair and setup work they've done for me and they stand behind their work. Francesco, their double bass specialist, seems to work out of the Tampa store and I've made appointments so that he can do the setup while I wait and make on-the-spot changes to get it just right.

    You’re right,Steve. Francesco worked on both of mine. The reason I know about the BBQ joint is that I also made an appointment and waited long enough to have lunch!

    I hate to be the bearer of bad new, but I'm pretty sure that the BBQ place across the street is gone.
