Music Mecca was set up by a small group of local sims in response to the lack of a decent music store. It is a happy place to spend time playing instruments, or chilling on the benches out front with your mates. It sells many different instruments, most of them playable, as well as some records. Come along and check us out! Future plans include a comprehensive sheet music section and more vinyl/CDs for sale. There is also a warehouse/storeroom, employee break room, and smoking area out the back.
I downloaded a LOT of stuff in preparation for this build, but I tried to keep custom content to musical instruments. None of these items are included.
Necessary: The Savvy Sellers Set: http://store.thesims3.com/productDe...=OFB-SIM3:69059
(The alternative on here looks good too, I haven't used it yet but am looking forward to trying it out: http://modthesims.info/d/515159
Also I used Granthes' OMSP to get the wall guitars looking right: http://modthesims.info/d/428179. Check out newshoes' tipsy ones for a trippy experience! http://modthesims.info/d/470232)
Musical instruments! You can use whatever you have in your game - if you have any other instruments, please let me know! I couldn't get this saxophone to work (http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/416972.page - link in post at bottom of page) and I couldn't find any brass instruments at all
NB This upload was delayed because the lot is exporting as a very large file. I haven't been able to figure out why, but rest assured, creators, there is no CC included
None of this is strictly necessary, but for the sake of variety it's recommended. So, ordered roughly by instrument, here we go!
