7. Milano's Music
Mesa had to be represented at some point, and the only choice there was Milano's. The old school store has a certain vibe. Perhaps it's the whole Main Street Mesa thing, but when you walk in there, you feel you could be walking into a music store in Hollywood or Chicago or New York City from way back when. Opened in 1946, Milano's sold guitars to Buck Owens in the early days of the songwriter's fabled career. The store offers a full line of gear, lessons, repairs, and rentals. There is a cool little video on its site that longtime Arizona and newbies looking for a quick history lesson might enjoy.

6. Drum Alley
Located inside west-side store Boogie Music, Drum Alley is a favorite among Phoenix's elite drummers because of its prices, selection, and most of all, hospitality. No offense to the drummers out there, but y'all can be some of the most difficult people to please, so when you hear one give praise to a music store, pay attention. "The nicest customer service of late I had was at Drum Alley . . . They do have people there very willing to help with repairs or orders," says Claire Griese, drummer for bands such as Black Banner Dovichenko, The MadCaps, and many others.

Umm Hello New Times... Bizarre Guitar is not on your list?  They've been cranking for almost 40 years in CenPho.

We're ( drummers) are picky because all the stores seem to put drummers last. We know what we want and most of the time none of the stores have it. Maybe give us a better selection like all the guitarists have and we won't sound picky. But oh well we're just the dumb monkeys hitting stuff

Guitarget is number 1? You have no credibility. Guitar Traders, Scottsdale is good. Cave Creek Guitar Company is easily the best guitar shop in the valley. Guitarget? Really? Ziggys music is gross and smells like cat piss.
