Closest StoreKamloops, British Columbia
This unit is all my wife had hoped for and more. The focused tone, passive/active versatility and ease of playing/transporting, have relegated her beautiful 3/4 size upright to decorating the living room while the NS is now the go-to rig. Many thanks to Len Pearson at the Vancouver store for his help.
