Just went there this afternoon, needless to say I was disappointed. Am I the only one that finds it incredibly small? I remember in Paris there's a whole freakin district (Pigalle) full of music and guitar shops.

Well I wouldn't say crap, or incredibly small. It's like 5 or 6 little shops, it's a nice place.

It is over rated though
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

D'aawwwwh. They're mostly nice guys and the prices aren't too bad. If you don't mess them about they're really good, and they have **** loads and they'll order it in if they don't. I like it.

Never been, sadly. I want to go though.

EDIT: 5 or 6 shops in one street? That's more than Newcastle, screw you, TS.

I would call it cosy

Alright place, though not enough for a whole day out.

I was going to go during the day then retreat to a gig just opposite (at the Borderline) but I wasn't old enough...

There's a music store there that kicks you out if you play Smoke on the Water on their guitars

I have a picture of the sign on my phone.

It reads: Absolutely, under no circumstances at all are customers allowed to play Stairway to Heaven, Sweet Child o Mine, or Smoke on the Water when trying out guitars. Thank you.



Epic.

I think it is a joke though

If you take a jar, and whisper what you want to hate into it, then close the jar, coat it in crunchy peanut butter, and shove it up your ass. I'm pretty sure you could hate everything after that.

there's no music shop district in Calgary (the city is freaking HUGE), but right near the geographical center of town, there's a huge Long & McQuade (with attached warehouse), a pretty big St. Johns Music, and five mins drive from there is Axe Music (which is a local store, but they are a great store)... given a whole day and thousands of dollars, i could do some damage there.

there's also like, 3 Guitarworks locations, 4 music centre canada locations, a large store specializing in drums called Mother's Music, as well as a local chain, Sak's Music, and a scattering of independent small stores.

so it's not too hard to go guitar shopping in Calgary, provided you have a car

yeah, it's very small. and (very) overpriced. vintage and rare is cool, though, and wunjo.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Its that overpriced, well I spose since they aren't independent apart from V+R and Wunjos its not great, but for little commodities they're alright and you can usually get money off label price.

yeah, i just thought (apart from V&R and wunjo) that they felt like you should be willing to pay an extra £100 (or more) above the RRP just so you could say you got it in denmark street. either that or they get a lot of celebrities/rock stars buying stuff who don't care too much about the money.

Just i'm not too pleased when i try a pedal, get told it's £300, then get home to find its RRP is more like £150. I wasn't buying it anyway (have since got one second-hand, though), but if i had been, that's daylight robbery if you ask me.
