I'm going to visit my brother who lives in Manhattan and I was wondering if there any interesting music shops I should check out while I'm there.
Ludlow Guitars on Ludlow Street - lower east side. Funky neighborhood. Lots of pedals.
30th St. Guitars on 30th Street - just south of Penn Station. Nice pedal selection.
Rudy's Music Stop - Just north of Times Square. The location on 48th Street is famous. OK pedal selection.
There is a Guitar Center near Union Square and a new big Sam Ash in lower mid-town. These stores are big, but more ordinary.
