Where to buy control surfaces in michigan?

I want to buy a midi control surface (for use with Reason on my laptop, mostly live). But I want to try a bunch of them out in person. Where can I do this in southeastern michigan?

Go to your local music shop! Most places have MIDI controllers that you can test on the spot, and if they don't, most will be glad to help you find what you need.

I went to Guitar Center this past December and ended up with an M-Audio Axiom 25. It works great with both Reason and Live. Soft synths are cheap and fun, do it!

Response by poster: I went down to music-go-round today, but they didn't have much in the way of keyboard-less control surfaces. Since I don't have a car, I'm wondering if there's one place in the metro detroit area I could just take a field trip out to that definitely has a wide selection.

Guitar Center is my first instinct. There's a neat looking little music store on Dequindre at 13 1/2 that I've never poked my nose into, but might be worth a try.

If you can justify a roadtrip to Fort Wayne, I'd encourage you to visit Sweetwater. I'm not an audio guy, but I stopped in just to check the place out when I had some time to kill in town, and it absolutely blew me away.
