If you're into music, it is sometimes very expensive to own your own equipment. Another alternative to buying brand new equipment is to buy it used/discounted. The Pioneer is a full service pawn shop that specializes in Music sales. They offer instruments, amplifiers, and a wide selection of music manuals and instructional aids. Shopping at a pawn shop has it's advantages. You can set up payment plans for the merchandise. There is also a never-ending stream of "new" equipment to choose from. The music staff is always helpful. They are also extremely talented musicians in their own right. I have shopped there for many music items. While you're there, look around the rest of the shop. Who knows, maybe you'll find a new bracelet in the jewelery department! Shopping here is always an adventure.
