You step up to a stall that seems to be selling a variety of musical instruments. Many of them appear to be handmade -- hide drums and flutes carved out of wood or drilled from lengths of metal pipe mostly -- although you do spot a few manufactured ones, such as a banjo (missing a string) and some harmonicas (only slightly dented).
The shopkeeper looks up from where he's tuning a triangle. "Hello there. Lookin' to buy yerself a musical instrument? A handy thing for a travellin' [man|woman] -- lots of opportunities to practice, cheerful tunes by the ol' campfire... even earn yerself a little meat busking if ya don't suck too badly."
He looks you up and down, and rubs his chin contemplatively. "Ayep, I think you're in luck, too. Got just the thing for ya."
You rifle through your pockets and determine that you currently have X hobo nickels.
