I love this record store - I've been going there for years and I've always been treated well. The selection is awesome and the owner has always offered to order something for me if he can't find it. I noticed a few bad comments on here, so I needed to rebut. Record stores like the Beat are a dying breed and I'm glad they are still where I can find them when there is a CD or record that I need to have.

THE BEAT IS AWSOME !!! It is my favorite record store . I have ben going there for years and will still continue to. The owner and workers are extremely nice .It is sad to see people talk smack about the beat. It has the best selection! If I were to go buy a record I would go to the Beat!

the only people who have written great reviews about the beat are people who have never been to any other record store. their new vinyl is ridiculously overpriced, and they never carry any "new" used vinyl. all the used records in the store can be purchased for $1 from any random thrift store, or from amoeba's clearance bin. do yourself a favor, and skip the beat. drive down to the bay and shop at rasputin's or amoeba instead.

The beat has the best selection on new,used, and nearly new cds, cassette tapes,vinyl,and even dvds and vhs!! you cant beat the selection! they even have cd singles, new and used! Their staff is knowledgible and friendly and will gladly help, if you ask...unlike what someone else said about you being "on your own when you venture in" they also have tix for certain shows in the local area...i highly recommend the beat over all the other record stores in sacramento. SUPPORT AND BUY FROM INDEPENDENT RECORD STORES...esp the beat! oh, and there is limited freee parking next to the beat!!

The Beat has a huge selection of mucho music! They have lots of finds for an old crusty punk like myself. Plenty of used stuff that you can't find anywhere else. Lots of vinyl for those who want the authentic experience. Plenty of new stuff too, and they can custom order almost anything. Prices are good.

The Beat is a great place in Sacramento to get all kinds of music, especially cds of local bands and cds that you might not be able to find at the more mainstream stores. The Beat has a very laid back atmosphere and the staff is very knowledgable about all kinds of music and are eager to help you find what you need or to suggest a new recommendation. They buy and sell music, so bring in your old cds to swap for credit towards some new ones.

the beat is that old fashioned kind of store that was plentiful beofre coffee shops like starbucks got into the business of selling cds. it's a funky, bohemian store with dusty racks of cds. the clerks are as youwould expect - not that interested in helping you so know that you're on your own when you venture in. they have a fair selection of indie. alternative music - far too much of the commercial stuff. you definitely get a feeling what the clerks are into when you walk in.

PROS: uswed cds
CONS: prices, clerks,

The Beat is located downtown where there is limited parking.you may have to park in one of the garages and walk there or if youre lucky, you might be able to park on the street. The store is nicely organized with friendly and helpful employees. You can find a selection of older as well as new CDs. If youre looking for vinyl records, theres a selection of those too. I went here with my daughter and got the impression this is a popular place for the younger generations.

I wandered into the store to just kill some time. I wasn't impressed with merchandise.

It does feel relaxed and comfortable that's probably why I wandered in -- it appeals. Open space lots of windows.

Once I was in I just wanted to check out the CDs. Yet, The Beat is more of a specialty music store with the old records and such.

PROS: Open space lots of windows
CONS: Parking is slim

The beat has not only a decent selection of used cds, but also a very good selection of new cds. They don't preasure you to buy. They seem to welcome you to look around. The beat also lets you listen to used titles so You can determine whether are not there are any defects, as well as whether you want to buy or not.

They sell all types of music here. They have records, CD's tapes that are fairly new. You can even find new music as well. They may have music that is hard to find The store is big. The store is clean and organized. The employees are friendly and helpful. They seem to know where everything is located and what they have. Parking is limited. You have to park at a parking garage or on the street. The location is in the downtown area. During the week day is the best time to visit the store.

Their not as bad as the other guy said. They do tend to cater to a particular brand of music more than others, but they do have a fairly wide selection and if you go in often you can usually find what you're looking for. Their prices are a bit high for used CD's though.

I am very particular about my record stores, and The Beat doesnt really cut the muster. Its a large store with a surprising amout of vinyl. The thing that I dont like about The Beat is their prices and selection. Their prices are a bit higher than normal (even on their used items) and the selection isnt that great. They have a store full of product, but its mediocre product. You will probably not find that obscure release that you were looking for.
