Forget the “No ‘Stairway to Heaven’” rule from Wayne’s World. At Napa Music Supply, customers are welcome to practice, sit and even electrify. NMS sells guitars, amps, keyboards, drums, recording devices, used equipment, has a clearance, all the bells and whistles. “Most music stores are really anal about you playing in the store,” explains Pacific Junior College junior Saul Escobar, contrasting the experience at a music chain store in his hometown that’s “always watching you.” He shops at Napa Music Supply for picks and accessories. “Recently I was in and picked up a ukulele and started playing. They came over and said, ‘You wanna plug that in here? Maybe use a guitar?’” Escobar looks forward to NMS’ friendly service. “They’re always cool. They encourage you to play. They don’t hassle you. They let me be myself and hang out.” 2026 Redwood Road, Napa, 707.265.8275.
