Whittaker is a nice small music shop off mira mesa blvd. There arent many stores for musical instruments around this area so Whittaker is the place to go. I went here to purchase some microphones and though they were about 5 bucks more then other stores, it was very convienent for me since it's not that far. It does have a pretty strict rule for not letting kids under 18 in without an adult though. but overall, its a decent store.
