How to Buy

You can buy items directly from from the comfort of your own home. If you are happy to buy over the internet, we will send you as much information about the bass/guitar/amplifier you're interested in as possible. If you require more high-resolution photos, please don't hesitate to ask.

You can always make an appointment with Andy at his Leeds Showroom (by Appointment) to try some basses/guitars/amps out first. We will consider a part exchange if it makes your desired bass a little easier to afford.
