I spent the morning at Bass Direct, just outside of Warwick.
It may end up being the cause of my divorce! :D
Customer service was excellent, I got to try a load of different head and cab combinations and my every request was dealt with.
Then after I'd made a purchase or 3 the owner of the place got a bunch of new pedals out that he hadn't tried yet just so we could have a laugh and see what they were like.
Brilliant place, and well worth a trip for the low enders.
