Ive been going to daddy's for years. The staff has turned over several times, and the 2009 bunch was a total waste of life sop I pretty much stopped going after being told "No... sorry" one too many times. I pay my cell phone bill next door to there, so last month I stopped in on a whim. The stoir had been completely changed around and there was a much better selection of gear there. I sales guy walked right up to me, introduced himself and shook my hand (a first) and asked how he could help. I ended up just getting some strings and such, but went back the following week and dealt with another new guy, who also seemed eager and helpful. Anyway the long story short, the first guy, the handshaker, called me last week and said he'd found me a rare guitar i had mentioned in passing at a good price at another daddys store. I hadnt even asked him to look and was surprised he remembered! I went to look at the guitar, he stringed it up and polished it right there and I took it home. What a difference! They must have finally decided to up the pay rate or whatever! Hope these guys stay!

The selection is mediocre at best, most of the used equipment in the store is low-end no name stuff or is in terrible condition. I bought a tama floor tom from these guys and when i decided to sell the kit i parted it out when i was unable to sell the floor tom i thought ide see how much i could get for it by going back to daddys, well the salesmen informed me that they do not buy individual drums...well i of course told them that i had purchased the drum there and they pretty much called me a liar. I do not care if they wanted to buy the drum back or not but to tell me you don't sell them like that when i bought it there is just ridiculous. I would recommend using the little extra gas and going to parkway music in clifton park. There selection is way better and there sales staff is friendly and approachable..they don't try to trick you into things and are willing to work with you.

Pros: location?

Cons: deceptive salesmen, crappy selection

They've got a decent selection of stuff here, at reasonable prices. But make sure you check your receipt vigilantly....last time I was there, the guy who checked me out (the on-duty manager) told me he was able to "throw in" a 2-year warranty on one of the effects I bought, and also presented me with a "loyalty-club" type of card good for $5 off 'accessories' each month.....needless to say, when I checked my receipt at home that night, I saw that he had charged me $40 for the warranty, and $20 for the card. My fault for not checking at the store, but it was flat out deceptive on his part nonetheless.

Pros: Decent selection, reasonable prices

Cons: on at least one occasion, a flat-out deceptive salesman

Awesome Service!!! Great knowledgeable staff, that isn't too pushy. They have the best used selection anywhere in town with some outstanding deals on things you can't find anywhere anymore. I highly recommend!
