Sandy’s Music US Map & Phone & Address
896 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge; (617) 491-2812
This tiny shop between Central and Harvard Squares has a loyal following among the folk music crowd, and it’s easy to see why. One wall is lined with all kinds of acoustic and electric guitars, banjos, ukeleles, and violins; the other has racks of folk records and tapes, some used, for as little as $3. Used cases, too, and some amps.
During Mine’s visit, a man was sitting on a stool in the middle of the shop (not easy amid the clutter) playing a banjo. He turned out to be a customer, not in-store entertainment of course; and he was raving about the instrument, saying, I can’t believe this is so much better than the one in that other store and it’s a hundred dollars less! Nuff said. Sandy’s is open Mondays through Saturdays from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. Thursdays until 9.
