Welcome to The Set Up Shop
The Set Up Shop is a double bass shop serving bassists in the greater Boston and New England areas. It is also the Internet home of my activities as a jazz bassist.
I started the shop thirteen years ago to provide repair and restoration services to the discerning bassist. I included the sales of new and used basses, as well as bass accessories and my philosophy is simple: SOUND is the most important aspect for any musician. At the Set Up Shop SOUND is first and foremost.
I invite you to browse the inventory page to see the products that are available. I am a certified dealer of fine products from Samuel Shen, Christopher, Mooradian, Fishman, Acoustic Image, and Euphonic Audio.
Thank you for visiting the Set Up Shop, home of the sophisticated bassist. I hope that you enjoyed your experience and know that you are always welcome to contact me by telephone or e-mail with any questions or comments you may have.
Quality and integrity are the heart and soul that drive beat at The Set Up Shop.
