Where Can I Buy Guitar Strings & Instrument Parts in NYC?

If you are a guitarist, you know how important it is to restring your instrument. One of the best ways to protect an instrument is to know when to restring it. It is recommended to switch out your strings every three months or after 100 hours of guitar playing as old strings can damage your guitar. So with that in mind, you might want to consider where you can easily get strings. 

Local Stores vs Guitar Shops

Of course, here in NYC, there are many different places you can go to buy instruments, accessories, and other materials. Of course, there are many famous chains that provide guitars and other accessories, but one option you might want to consider is local stores and providers. For example, our pawn shops are distributors for a lot of different music brands. On top of that, we actually make our own guitar strings and sell them at our locations. A lot of guitarists and musicians appreciate buying from local stores because of the better prices and quality of their instruments. 

Where To Buy Used & New Instruments

Aside from buying accessories like strings, tuners, and other items, you might also be considering buying a guitar itself. If you are looking for an instrument you can always decide to either go for a used one or a new one. Here at Paradise Pawn, we offer both at our locations in the Bronx, so you can compare value and pricing in one place. But outside of that, you should always consider the pros and cons of whether you are buying a used guitar or a new guitar. While new guitars are brand new and haven’t been played before, they are often expensive especially when you are looking at more unique electric guitars. 

While there is sometimes something sentimental about owning your first guitar and knowing that it is yours, it is sometimes more cost-effective to buy a used guitar or another instrument. That said, you will want to make sure you are getting your money’s worth. Guitars, like many other instruments, need to be maintained in order to sound their best. When looking for an acoustic guitar you will want to make sure that the neck and fretboard aren’t warped and that the strings won’t unintentionally hit the frets when played. With an electric guitar, you will want to make sure that the sound through the amp is clean when plugged in.
