BEST MUSIC STORE (INDEPENDENT) Minneapolis 2007 - Twin Town Guitars
3400 Lyndale Ave. S.
Minneapolis, MN 55408
Spend too long perusing the formidable selection of guitar effects at this recently expanded local gem, and it would be easy to miss him: Andrew Bell, the easygoing proprietor. He and his employees, many of them gigging musicians, will remember your name and know the value of your trade-in, and can order just about anything you need to create the sound you crave. New Fender guitars, Marshall amps, Zildjian cymbals, and RotoSound guitar strings can all be had at big-box prices. Also available are boutique Moollon effects pedals and the area's best selection of entry-level acoustic guitars. Quality and value are taken seriously here, but even high-income "buy now, play later" hobbyists will find the lack of pretension refreshing. Drum sets, basses and bass amps, speaker cabinets, and vintage electric organs round out the eclectic selection. And it's open seven days a week.
