I'm off to Brussels for a couple of days this week - Does anyone know of any good Saxophone/Music shops worth visiting there?

Cheers
Chad

Can't recall any music shops off the top of my head, but I used to visit the place quite regularly a few years ago. If you look behind the modern, Eurocrat parts of the city it's a great, quirky place to visit, with some really nice eateries. If you can get a local to show you around, and really get under the skin of the place, it's a surprisingly cool city.

And also, once you've had a good look at the beauty of the place, the bars and restaurants around the Grand Place. Tend to be overpriced, and not so great. Go a little further afield and you can find great bars and restaurants, with a very relaxed atmosphere. Even the Michelin starred ones are pretty cool and easy going, certainly much more so than you find in Paris.
