Best Place for Musicians - 2006
If you're having trouble finding George's Music in the Palm Beach Mall's directory, there's no need to get your guitar cord in a bunch. Simply go out the Borders exit, walk to the edge of the sidewalk, and look to your right. Yep, that's the only entrance. And if it looks familiar, well, it should -- it's the store formerly known as Mars Music, which George's took over after Mars tanked a few years ago. Call it a coincidence, but the sales reps are a lot less pushy than they used to be. You can actually walk from one section to another without some sales shark breathing down your neck. One thing that hasn't changed, though, is the extensive selection of music gear, from guitars (Fender Telecaster, $649; Squier Telecaster, $229), amplifiers (VOX Valvetronix AD100VT, $549), drums (Tama kits range from $650 to $1,688), and digital mixers (roughly $229 to $799), as well as plenty of microphones, cables, recording software, and every accessory you'll need for the stage or studio. All right, so maybe there aren't any pyrotechnics. But that's for your own good.
