Coronavirus Status Update

Due to the virus situation, we are making some short-term, temporary changes to our in-person procedures. 


Our Experts are on the Phones, and we are Shipping!  

We are still rolling!  Our expert consultants are wired into our systems remotely, and we available at our numbers above during our regular business hours!  We are Shipping!

Critical staff is available at our facility, including some members of the Drum, Pro Audio, and Guitar consulting team to make sure we can still receive, ship, and provide the world-class consulting you have come to expect. 

Drop Off and Pickup Update

We are offering free 1-day shipping service to all local folks!  While, we can not presently offer drop-offs and pick-ups,  we are also offering free same-day delivery for our local orders, at the discretion of our sales team.   Our Saturday “open house” is closed until it is safe to reopen.

Also, for the moment Durham-law prevents in-person appointments and walk-ins, ensuring the safety of our critical staff.   So please take advantage of our expert telephone consultations and free delivery! 

Thank you for your understanding as we work to keep us, and our community safe.

Supply is Plentiful, But Limited.  Shortages are Expected.

We are proud to be offering one of the largest inventories in the history of our company.   Sadly, we are also expecting delays and shortages to sweep the industry.  Between supply chain disruptions for parts originating out of the country (including China), to recent closures of most US Builders and equipment manufacturers, supply is severely impeded.  Simultaneously, demand is increasing as folks want to play, create, and record music at home now more than ever.   So, if you have a critical need or question, please be in touch with us ASAP so we can prioritize your needs and do our best to get you what you need!

Monday – Friday  10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
