Hey peeps

I'm going to Rome for a few days next week, and if I get a little time off I'd love to know where to shop for 2nd hand gear..... am into synths, compressors, filters and such....

Anybody know where to go ?

Peace

I just got here a couple weeks ago and will be staying for another two months, but in my meandering I have not seen anything even resembling an electronic music store. Sorry I can't help but good luck!

No such thing here... but guitars aplenty. You could try Your Music (Via dei quattro venti), Musicarte (via Fabio Massimo, center zone) and Bandiera (via Cavour) for some used thingies.

Ps: Ehi Dave, you're here, and I'm going to Redmond in a few weeks... don't know absolutely anything about the place :)

Lived there a year, 20 years ago. But still speak some, so I did a google for you.

Its a thread on an Italian homerecording forum about a guy that is going to Rome and has the same question as you do. 8)

They come up with some addresses:

"cherubini" a via tiburtina, Cherubini è vicino alla stazione Tiburtina, appena dopo il ponte della ferrovia. (near the Tiburtina station, just after the railway bridge)

"musicarte" a via germanico, Musicarte è in via Fabio Massimo 35 (Prati - zona S. Pietro)

"bandiera" a via cavour (Via Cavour is in the very center)

"yourmusic" a Viale dei 4 venti

"Centro Musicale" in via dei Prati Fiscali 196

"d'Amore" a Via Mantova 46 (vicino P.za Fiume)

Saw that somebody was replying while I was typing this, so there are some "doubles"

I've put the names of the shops between " ", "a" means in or at, and "via" is street.
