9 Best Stores in Metro Phoenix for Music Gear
5. Boogie Music
Boogie Music has managed to stay relevant in the local music gear world for 34 years now. Though its location is pretty much in the middle of a two-mile stretch between a Guitar Center and Metro Phoenix's only Sam Ash location, Boogie holds its own and stays true to the neighborhood that continues to support it.
Ryan Butler, owner of Arcane Digital Recording and guitarist in Landmine Marathon, is a fan of the store. "[Boogie] has Brent Gutierrez as their luthier. He's the best in town. Only guy I will let touch my high-dollar guitars," Butler says. "I have two of his custom-built guitars. Amazing pieces that go from blocks of wood to the best playing new guitars." Boogie also sets itself apart from others on the west side with a great repair service and the option of renting equipment. Whether you are looking for a trumpet for your next trip to band camp or a P.A. for a backyard kegger featuring your new garage band, Boogie can hook you up.
