    Anyone familiar with any music stores with a large selection around Maryland or Pennsylvania? I'm trying to find some stores with a good selection of horns, and I'm assuming that area to have a few decent music stores. Thanks.

    Yee HAW!
    You'd be wanting to visit Pick Music ( http://www.pickmusic.net/ ) which is located in Manchester, PA. Mrs. Priscilla King has developed quite a reputation for being honest, for personally checking out all of the horns that go through her shop, and being a great dealer for Kanstul. She has mentioned that she lurks around here for time to time (although what alias she hides behind nobody knows).

    If you go to her website, send her an email, she would be pleased to let you know what inventory she has hanging about.

    Wahington Music Center in Wheaton, MD is good for selections and price. It is in a suburb of D.C.
    Good luck!

    DILLON MUSIC! its in woodbridge NJ, I have only ever had positive expirinces with them, I bought my callet trumpet there, after trying out just about every used trumpet on the wall and asking tons of questions, which they were cool about. I ordered a mouthpiece off of their website (http://www.dillonmusic.com/) and that was shiped in a timely fashion. I also recently just had my callet completly overhauld there and not only did their repair department do a phenomenal job at a low price they also had it done and back to me in less then a week. Check out their website, I think youll see for yourself that its worth the trip.

    Go to Chuck Levin's Washington Music in Wheaton, MD. It's just north of the beltway.

    It's kind of an odd setup. You go in downstairs where they have they have the guitar/drum shop and you have to ask to go upstairs and try out horns. You'll be escorted upstairs where you'll be delivered to one of the salesmen who are patient and polite but not cloying--they'll let you play as much as you want(they'll leave you alone to try the horn). As for selection, they've got DOZENS of bachs at least. I went in to try some C's last month and they must have had around 20 bachs.

    I think that if you are looking for horns, the aforementioned Chuck Levin's Washington Music Center in Wheaton, Maryland is hard to beat. That's where I bought my last Strad, hand picked from about 25 different Strads. They had plenty more to choose from. That's a good selection in my book.

    If you are looking for anything other than wind instruments (as long as you aren't looking for stringed orchestral instruments) Guitar Center in Towson, Maryland is hard to beat. I have done a lot of business with them (I bought my drum kit and all related hardware there) and I really like them.
