Not what you'd find in a mall. Nice local place with a lot of tradition, friendly folks, lots of great musical instruments. A bit pricey, but well worth it.

This is a great resource of hard to find musical instruments! They are very knowledgeable and have a great assortment of "odd" instruments. They have a lengthy and unique history. A defintie must see store for the curious beginners and afficianados as well.
