After reading the threads about the new Zon and Lakland dealer in Austin, Texas, I decided to go check the Bass Emporium out for myself and give ya'll the lowdown: The Bass Emporium is the only high-end bass dealer that I know of in central Texas, let alone the entire state. It is a one-man operation, and the proprieter has several Zons, a Roscoe, and US and Korean Laklands. He also has two Ritter Raptors on order. The guy was very pleasant and encouraged me to play everything he had in the store, which I did for about an hour. He also had plenty of Aguilar and Bergantino cabs. The owner has big plans - celebrity clinics could very well be in the future. All in all it was a great experience and I recommend anyone in the central Texas area to go check this store out. After envying all of you who live in the Washington (BassNW) and Florida (Bass Central) my prayers have finally been answered.
