For the safety of our customers and staff, we have taken the unprecedented step of closing the retail store for at least a week as of 3/19/20. If you need us, or have an instrument here for repair or on consignment, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . We will respond, but please be patient. We wish everyone safety, good health, and calm during this weird time.
This New Year we wanted to share a few New Year’s Resolutions with our awesome customers (that’s you!) that our staff has set for themselves. While some may be taken more seriously than others, we are putting our best feet forward with our goals for 2020.
“I’ve stubbed my toe twice on my guitar in the past month, which is more than I’ve picked it up and played it–I want to pick my guitar up everyday this year to play. I also want to try making less banjo jokes!”
“After 40 years of playing electric guitar only, I want to get back into my acoustic guitar. I also want to learn to play another instrument–maybe a banjo!”
“I want to start writing more again. I also want to more actively use my metronome while practicing, and to work on my modes and scales.”
“This year I want to learn how to apply my music theory knowledge to my guitar, to better my songwriting skills. I also want to more often remember that ‘hot things are hot’ when soldering parts at the bench–I burn myself way too often, hahaha!”
I’m here to tell you that April 6th, at 11 am, you can join me at the store for an interactive demonstration on how to bathe your trumpet. We will go over how to properly disassemble your trumpet, what the bathing process should look like, and how to put it back together correctly.
Bathing your trumpet is a common and simple maintenance that can be done in your bathroom tub or sink. I hope to see many of you there. Here’s to trumpets!
Attention all acoustic and electric guitar players!! This April, on Saturday, the 20th, we will be hosting a restring event featuring D’Addario’s NYXL and Nickel
Bronze guitar strings.
So what’s the deal?
On April 20th, bring your 6-string acoustic or electric guitar into the store. When you buy one pack of the NYXL or Nickel bronze strings, we will restring the guitar FOR FREE (normally a $20 service), and GIVE YOU another pack of the same strings. That’s right–Free restring and a free pack of strings when you buy one pack of D’Addario NYXL or Nickel Bronze strings.
Made out of a reformulated steel, the NYXL strings will “bend farther, sing louder, and stay in tune better than any string you’ve played before.” They “provide more strength and up to 131% greater tuning stability by utilizing a completely reinvented wire drawing process coupled with a revolutionary ‘fusion twist’ process for the plain steels” (D’Addario Co.). They also provide more high output and a enhanced mid-range frequencies.
Nickel Bronze Strings
The Nickel Bronze Strings yield a “crisp and clear sound to accentuate the unique tone of your guitar.” They’re perfect for players that are looking for “the depth and projection of light gauge bottom strings, but slightly less tension on the high strings for easy bending” (D’Addario Co.). The strings provide brilliant projection, unrivaled clarity, and heavenly balances and overtones.
We hope to see you there! One Day Only, While Supplies Last.
