What the community has to say about Amoeba Music

Information about this business (8)

Our second Amoeba store, located in the heart of the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.

In 1997 Amoeba Music crossed the Bay to open its San Francisco location, in a converted bowling alley at the eastern edge of Golden Gate Park. Here we stock hundreds of thousands of music and movie titles from every genre imaginable, and we're constantly buying great collections and bringing in new products.

Editorial reviews from the web (3)

With more than 2.5 million new and used CDs, DVDs, and records at bargain prices, this warehouselike offshoot of the Berkeley original carries titles you can't find on Amazon. No niche is ignored—from electronica and hip-hop to jazz and classical—and the stock changes daily. Weekly in-store performances attract large crowds.

A music junkie's paradise, Amoeba has an encyclopedic selection of new and used CDs, as well as DVDs, music posters, LPs, and 45s. Everyone from pierced club kids to aging Deadheads comes here to offload their used CDs for cash or trade then stay for hours to browse. Unlike Virgin and other media mega-stores, Amoeba has an extremely knowledgeable and helpful staff, many of whom moonlight as...

A single-cell, sonic haven boasting massive inventory, in-store concerts and a brainiac staff.

Was really excited about visiting here and planned on spending half a day with my teenage sons whilst on holiday - it's an amazing place and the stock is incredible - however whether we just got a bad day or it's not such a great place to work the staff really made you think about walking out after spending 3...

When I bought my guitar in this place, I have no idea how to find the perfect brand and quality. It's a good thing that their service assistant knows a lot about music and gave me the help I need.

I was planning to purchase an upright piano and I am planning to buy it here. Upon reading the reviews, I think that they are a good music store.
