Sam Ash is a space where the patrons trying out the products are really maximizing their time there, unlike Guitar Center. Though, I must discern the Times Square from the one on 14th Street, because the latter is worse. Sam Ash, on the other hand,...More

This music store has a wide selection of musical instruments, recording equipment, and music books for all instruments, such as piano, guitar, and violin. I liked playing the violin, as well as piano, guitar, and recorder.
