I may be going to either Rome or London for a few days within the nearest weeks. Thinking I could make something useful of it so I wonder if any of you locals in Rome or London can recommend the biggest meanest music store, with the address is possible.

I'll just be picking up a few things like a Boss Noicegate, Breed bridge pu, a set of Evo's, a couple of switches and pots maybe.

Thanks biggrin.gif

Haven't been there but google gave this.

BTW, never said thanks for the Stockholm tip. Found the one on Götgatan, Hellstone. It was perfect, just what I was looking for. A smell of wood and dust, lovely vintage guitars. Instruments everywhere, hardly no floorspace to walk on. Dedicated Hep Stars gold records on the wall. biggrin.gif

I dont know of any there, but i wouldnt suggest huge stores. They're normally crowded with noobs trying to play smoke on the water. I suggest small shops, because the people there know what they're talking about. Alot of the time in big shops the workers dont even know what any of the gear is/does. So just a suggestion that you might wanna look into finding a small shop.
