Service without compromise

„Nothing is impossible!“ 

I often heard this phrase at the beginning of my professional life. As meaningless as it seemed to me at the time and as simple as it is, that’s how crucial this can be sometimes.

What customers say

"Steffen ordered me my incredible epic Fodera bass on the spot and delivered it to a parking lot on the motorway when I was on tour. What a great service! Buying an instrument couldn't be more perfect. Thank you, Steffen!"

I actually only know such an exceptional package from first-class double bass dealers: best advice, professional service, only selected first-class instruments and a burning passion for the product. And all of this combined with the certainty of finally having a contact person for master instruments of the top quality here in Germany."
Professor Mini Schulz

"Fendt's Finest - The name is the program. Owner Steffen knows how to provide the finest service, very close to customers and with a keen sense for individual service solutions. For me already now the noble bass address in Germany."
Mike Stanzel
Mixxed Up
"First class - top shop and a fantastic selection of unique instruments that you can't see/play anywhere else. Steffen is also a very nice, great person with a lot of experience who always has the right tip at hand. I'll be back and this was certainly not my last bass I bought here. I can highly recommend "Fendt's Finest" to every bass player - the place to be!"

"An absolute recommendation! Because of Steffen I finally have a Sadowsky. What a super pleasant and relaxed shop! Excellent advice and all the time you need to decide. Over a good coffee a decision was made and in the end I went home with a beautiful instrument."
Bernie Bell
Bass Fanatic
"I had the privilege of testing a marvelous SS-15 and an equally marvelous Jim Hall Model with Steffen. It was really a difficult choice, but finally I voted for the Jim Hall model. Steffen was an outstanding partner and patiently coached my choice. If I ever have the opportunity to buy another Sadowsky instrument, Steffen will be my first call!"
