Arlene's Grocery is proud to offer musicians the best backline in NYC. Marshall, Fender, Ampeg, TC Electronic, Hartke, Slingerland... Relax and leave your gear at home!

We've upgraded our house sound system to Turbosound. A Crest CA18 powers Turbosound TSW-718 subwoofers delivering 1,900 Watts of devastating low-end power per side, while a QSC RMX4050 provides gobs of headroom to a pair of Turbosound THL-2 tops. Arlene's Grocery delivers arena-sized sound in a small club!
