Where to try basses in St. Louis

  1. Does anyone know of any stores in the St. Louis area that have Rick Turner, Rob Allen, or Roscoe basses?

    The fast answer is no.

    I'm from St. Louis and I have not see too many of the more exclusive luthiers hanging on any one's walls. I've found locally Pedulla's, Ken Smith, Modulus, and a boat load of Rickenbacker, Warwick, Musicman, Fender, Ibenez etc.

    Strange that an area that supports so many music stores can't or won't support the Boutique stuff.
  3. I actually called McMurray Music Center today and they said they might become a dealer. Maybe they will have some there by the time I have enough money to buy one.

    I grew up in St. Louis county, and I remember there are lots of luthiers locally. In fact, the suburb of St. Louis in which I lived, had a luthier right in the middle of a business district. Hell, the guy who lived across the street made harpsichords.

    What's more, Conklin is just a ride away.

    MacMurray is one of the best stores I know of there. I rent stuff amps from them when I have a gig in town.
