We shop hard online for the things we need, living in Tow, TX has its advantages but shopping isn't one of them. When it comes to our musical needs, Sweetwater Music Instruments and Pro Audio is our very favorite. They have competitive prices and their inventory covers almost everything imaginable. But the best feature is their customer service.
In our experience, every person at the other end of the phone line or email is extremely knowledgeable and if they don't know something they'll have an answer for you right quick. On top of everything else, every order comes with a cute little bag of candy. They have our number, these Sweetwater people.
