I moved to Europe and am frustrated with duty fees and shipping from USA stores. Need a shop with large inventory of accessories and mouthpieces like Tenor Madness, Junk Dude, SaxQuest, Sax Alley that were my go-tos in the US. Anything like that in Europe?
(Prefer not to use a UK shop)

Hi, welcome ! Keep in mind, Europe is a collection of Countries with independent local postal services and other such specialities, which can make things a bit slower. I don't know the spanish market at all, but 3 big operators come to my mind:
www.thomann.de : they operate all over Europe from Germany. Excellent service level, and competitive pricing
www.woodbrass.com: Essentially french company, but I think they serve Europe too
www.sax.co.uk : Based in London, they serve Europe, tend to be on the expensive side, specialized in saxophones.
Hope it helps, and you'll certainly get other good addresses from fellows here.

Try Saxofoonwinkel https://saxofoonwinkel.nl/en/ in Holland. Their website translations are a bit hit and miss but they certainly seem to have a wide range of stock. I haven’t bought from them but they have been around for a long time.

I see you don’t want UK stores but if you are looking for reeds then I would recommend Reedsdirect in Cambridge, good range and prices and incredibly efficient, I’ve often ordered reeds in the afternoon and got them the next morning.

Definitely check out Mike Duchstein in Germany.
I've had good experience with them. Not exactly fast emailers, but otherwise a very friendly shop with good selection of vintage stuff!

For new stuff Thomann is hugely popular here among all kinds of musicians, they have large selection, competitive prices and have been reliable. Just ordered a Metalite Bari piece and 100e worth of reeds today.
