Wunjo Bass shop Denmark Street

Recommended Posts

Agreed, lots of varied stock in there and the guys were happy to chat away .... Just how a bass shop should be :)
Tried a Mm bongo and a few warwicks (all nice butnone German :( )

What I meant was that I don't bother with anything properly local. As I occasionally have to go to London, Wunjos is where I go. Job done.
Edit: this week, as there's a bit of a road trip happening, I get to go to GAK AND Wunjos! Much mileage...

?????? Mansons???

While mansons is a good shop, and pretty friendly, their bass selection is nothing compared to Wunjo (or wasn't a few weeks ago)

Mansons bass selection has reduced a bit, as has the display space for them. I'd not be too surprised if there's not much bass there at all in a year or two...

I popped into Wunjo's when I was in London last week. I went in, they greeted me warmly. I said basschat had recommended them which they were pleased about and they treat me very well. I can't remember the two guy's names (I'm really rubbish with names) but they both said to just help myself to any bass, plug it into anything I liked and just play. They were very very accommodating and helpful. It's worth the £20 return on the National Express from Bristol just to go there in my opinion.

I tried a very lovely Musicman Bongo in there which is a bass I never thought I'd get a chance to play. It was way smaller and lighter and easier to play than I thought it would be. I still prefer a dual pickup bass so if they ever get an HS in...

Top shop, top blokes, highly recommended.

I'm crap with names too but the guy who served me reminded me of the bloke off the mighty boosh :)

Notch another one up to Laurence and Tom. Bought my second bass from there in 4 months. Lovely 1977 Precision. Spent nearly 2 hours trying around about 20ish basses to find the right one and never felt pressured.

Just picked up a beautiful trans red Guild Starfire from Tom and Tom. Had a very pleasant time having a blather with staff and customers in what must be the most laid back shop in town.

They gave me a great deal and once again I can't recommend Wunjo's enough. They had some very interesting stock in to, varied with some interesting pieces.

The best bass shop in London.. Game over!

Cheers Chaps!

Some news here. When I bought my Starfire it came in a gig bag. There should've been a hard case, but they were missing due to Fender pulling out of Guild distribution. I had a call from Tom at Wunjo today, Guild have a new distributor and I have a new hard case for my Starfire! How cool is that? What a great blinking shop Wunjo is! :D

I had great customer service from Laurence, who also beat the online price for my amp without my having to ask.

I recall trawling Denmark St regularly when I used to work in Center Point tower in 2000. I found all the shops then to be like art galleries - lovely stuff on the walls but you spend 5 minutes of your lunch break finding a staff member to ask to try something and then they mutter and idle over to it and then loiter nearby the whole time you have it on your lap...

I had to drop to Wunjo's today in their new basement home. I bought a 5 string about a year back it has really had very little use so i thought a part ex trip to Denmark St was in order. I need a 4 string back up.....a quick chat with Tom (or was it Tom?) and a great deal done on a part ex and i now have a Yamaha 424x in a nice metallic red.

Always good doing business with Wunjo's :)

I had a very good experience from Wunjo bass recently. Went in to seek advice and buy some flatwounds. They not only stock but have a helpful opinion on about half a dozen types. Like it should be, and I was happy to buy at pretty reasonable price. OK so they won't get rich from a set of strings, but the helpful and interested attitude is genuine, and as it used to be back in the day.

No affiliation !

Don't know how many of you remember Chris Bryant Music, the big shop on the corner of Charing X Rd with the orange signs?

Those signs now read "Wunjos" and the shop is being refurbed right now ...
