Andy at Yowcha really knows his stuff - As far as I'm aware, there's no other music shop or PA store around for miles with his kind of knowledge (although he'll hate me saying that!)

But sorry Andy, it's the truth, and your customer service is the best I've ever come across. Many thanks to you, highly recommended to everyone - go down to Yowcha in Grimsby!
