Re: The death of retail music stores
Definitely Maxwells. I have heard complaints that some items are overpriced (which I personally disagree with), but their selection and quality is quite impressive. I purchased 2 of my cymbals there and love them both - you also can test them all behind a kit before you buy them.
I would even suggest bringing your current cymbals to try to find a nice match.
Play like no one is listening.
