Whether you’re looking for a traditional acoustic, a stage ready electro acoustic or ukulele, banjo or mandolin we have a huge range of instruments for you to choose from.



“Best little shop around! Better than the big name stores. Have taken several instruments there for repair including my bass and my daughters clarinet and they have always did an excellent job.” – Gregory M.


Need Lessons?

Need Lessons? Come on in. Our recently renovated lesson studio has several lesson rooms from guitar to piano and everything in between. We have a laid-back approach- we want you to play and we invite everyone in. We have a lobby to wait in or you are welcome to sit in and learn something yourself. Friends and family are welcome to attend. Lessons are available during and after store hours. The studio is accessible through the store or via its own private entrance.
