This is a small family-owned shop in a strip mall next to a bigbox pharmacy chain.   The proprietor was knowledgeable, careful, and very direct.  Not rude, just …. direct.

While the selection is small, the instruments are all top quality and the owner was proud to point out that he hand-selects every instrument in the shop and plays them individually before buying them from the vendors he works with.

This is a great place to come if you know your budget and know what you want, but not such a great place to browse and try out new things.
