Woodbrass + French e-tailers advice. Cort content.

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by eukatheude, Dec 12, 2013.

  1. I am saving up for a Cort B5FL. Go look it up, you won't find it on their site, along with several other basses and guitars which I have seen in person. I found out about its existence a while ago on a youtube video, whose uploader directed me to Woodbrass. It's the only site i could find that carries this bass. I talked about this with my local brick&mortar shop owner (the kind of bass I'm looking for is not on his distributors' catalogue... Specifically: 5er, unlined fretless, active and kinda cheap) and he mentioned this bass, and other models, might be some sort of "France only edition" or whatever. The point being, this bass can only be bought in France or through French online dealers.
    I have no experience with Woodbrass, so here I am asking for advice from anyone who bought from there. :D I'd also love any recommendation for other dealers who do indeed sell this bass. Thanks!
  2. Bumpy. Anyone got a tip?

    Hey, my band and I are going to order our shiny new PA at Woodbrass (we're located in France). After some research it was Thomann or Woodbrass, the latter happens to be less expensive on the particular gear we want. Seems like a pretty trustworthy shop from what I've heard, I never dealt with them directly though.

    As far as french retailers go, I found this bass on Musikia and Michenaud, but they only ship inside Europe.

    Looks like your best bet is Woodbrass.

    Woodbrass is a well established, serious shop. I don't shop there often but every time I did everything was fine.
    They had financial difficulties a few years ago but are back on tracks.
  6. I am in europe. :cool: Thanks for the suggestion, gonna check them out.

    Thank you!
