It seems like the last decent place to buy music gear in Seattle with real people. Compared to the zombies at guitar center and the rip off artists at the Trading Musician, American music is an oasis of nice. They will work with you on price when they can and even let your crazy daughter smash every cymbal and drum in the drum department with out getting upset. They seem to be sincere about wanting to help you and they don't pressure you into buying things. They have also been very good about taking returns and exchanging items. Thanks American Music.
