Milwaukee's Best Musical Instrument Store
Cascio Interstate Music
Cascio Interstate Music is every bit as large as the chain instrument stores, but, unlike the big guys, this shop is family run and maintains close ties to the community. For several years running, for instance, the store has co-sponsored with 91.7 WMSE and the Shepherd Express the only stage at Summerfest dedicated entirely to local music. Whether you’re in a garage-rock band or an orchestra or you DJ on the weekends, Cascio stocks everything you need, and just about every brand you’ve ever heard of. Their low-pressure staff will help you find the right equipment without trying to sell you something needlessly expensive.
13819 W. National Ave.
Runners-up: Uncle Bob’s, Wade’s Guitar Shop
