Buy your musical instruments at Best Buy? What?

When I first started hearing rumors of being able to buy musical instruments at big box retailer Best Buy, I totally dismissed it. It would never be professional products there, I thought. It would probably be toys and pro-sumer junk.

I was wrong.

The new Musical Instruments selection at Best Buy.com has a good selection of quality stuff. There’s pro-synths, interfaces, recording gear, guitars and more. It’s not a full selection, but they do have Sonar 7 Producer. Or the Korg M3 61-key synthesizer. In fact, their keys selection scales all the way up to Roland’s flagship board, the Fantom G8. And it says “in store only” for that listing!

Speaking of, here’s the stores that carry music gear.

Call me crazy, but I just can’t see myself going into Best Buy, picking up a new DVD, video game, oh… and a new guitar and amp. I wonder what prompted them to start selling big name instruments. I’m sure they’re hoping poor musos come in and apply for their 20% interest credit card.
