The store is quite small and tends to get cramped as there is hardly any circulation space. However, its essence lies in the instruments that it sells and the top level reveals a dazzling collection of it. We see numerous Indian musical instruments like sitars and dholaks apart from several miniature models displayed neatly on glass shelves. Stunning rock guitars and drum kits comprise a large part of the other section.
