It ain't called the "Musical Instrument Megastore" for nothing. Here you'll find guitars, drums, keyboards, multi-track recording systems and even sheet music -- all at discount prices. Test-drive the incredible selection of instruments; it's not only allowed, it's encouraged. Fun fact: There really was a Sam Ash; he was a violinist who had his own orchestra.
