One of the best kept musical secrets in Nashville might well be Nashville Used Music, which is located at 4870 Nolensville Road in south Nashville, TN 37214. It is one of the best places in the city to shop for new and used gear. The staff is both helpful and friendly and if they don’t have what you are looking for you can add your name to their list and will let you know if the item you are looking for should show up on the shelves.
They are very generous with their trade in amounts and if you don’t see anything that you want but also don’t want to re-load your drum set into the sub-compact car that you arrived in, they will buy it from you for cash. The economy has been hard on everyone and Nashville Used Music rolls along with the tide. They have physically shrunk the size of the showroom to allow them to stay open and competitive but that simply means that instead of lots of air space on the shelves, they are packed with bargains and that is something that every musician loves to see.
While they do sell some new gear as I mentioned above. Their forte is to cater to the pristine used items that have already taken the depreciation hit and you are left paying a decent price for a gently loved instrument. That means more cash left in your pocket at the end of the day and that is the most important thing.
One other thing that I like is that the staff here asks if they can help you and if you say that you are just browsing, they leave you alone to browse. No high pressure and no salesman hovering over you as you peruse the many items for sale at the store. If at the end of your shopping trip you find something you really like and you think it is too expensive, make them an offer. They are not offended and there are plenty of times they will drop the price to your offer, or at least in the middle. This once again means more money where it does you the most good, and that, my friend is in your pocket.
With the price of a gallan of gas fast approaching the price of a set of decent guitar strings you might want to check them out on line and be sure they have what you are after before making the drive. They are easy to find at www.nashvilleusedmusic.com.
