What should I buy and where?

If you’re buying new:

  • Musiciansfriend.com
  • Sweetwater.com
  • Guitarcenter.com

Some of these offer financing options. Or just walk into a music store to test/buy.

If you’re buying used:

  • Offer Up (or similar apps)
  • Facebook exchanges
  • Pawnshops

Just make sure you research what you’re buying so you don’t get a lemon.

Other conventional wisdom of mine:

  • Guitar/bass: buy commonly known brands, invest in a decent amp
  • Drums: spend just a little more, beware of plastic parts that can break
  • Keyboards: basic Yamaha keyboards give you a good bang for your buck
