Cool gear stores to visit in Manhattan tomorrow

Post by Mklein » Sat Sep 06, 2008 6:31 pm

Hi all. I'm going to be in Manhattan from Philly tomorrow (Sunday), and need to kill a few hours. Anyone know of any cool, interesting, cheap, neat, etc places to find audio gear? pawn shops, flea markets, pro-audio stores, etc? Thanks!

For guitars, I always like going to Matt Umanov guitar shop on Bleeker St.

http://www.umanovguitars.com/

Last time I was there their window display was about 30 really cool lap steels.
