I have used several online merchants to purchase musical equipment, supplies, and accessories. Any more I may go to a store and look at options for touch and feel, but I find the pricing to be on the higher side.
I used to list several merchants here, but with some feedback and the expansion with amazon.com I’ve found that using a prime membership you can find many advantages with using them.
I’m all for supporting your local store if they are being reasonable in their pricing, but I’m not often one to wait around until they put my desired instrument or equipment on sale.
Do yourself a favor and check out some of the music instrument and equipment deals at Amazon:
