AWESOME MUSIC SHOP hands down and thumbs up!
E.M. Is not your typical "store front" kind of place, like the ones that are shrouded in bright lights and banners - NO! but instead there is a rather unique vibe to the shop. You get a very "cool" sense of being in a specialty music shop in NYC instead of a retail store in a strip mall somewhere. Brother Mitch that works there is a great help if you should ever need solid, precise and honest information concerning answers to any gear questions you may have.
