We now offer consignment sales of your musical instrument. If you aren't playing, give someone else the chance and make a little money.
You set the price, and we retain 10% when the instrument sells.
We sell musical accessories. We have the basics for your band student including a variety of reeds for single and double reeded instruments, oil for brass instruments, neck straps, and cleaning kits.
We also sell strings for guitar, electric bass, and violin.
We can do special orders. Normally we can have the item to you in a week, but we do require 100% deposit for special orders.
All items are priced at manufacturer's suggested retail price. We don't gouge our customers.
