yamaha guitalele camping

Guitalele


"This is what I like to use as my campfire guitar. With summer camping trips here I never forget to add this when packing for my outdoor excursions. It is unique in its own way by being the best of both worlds. Its small body makes it extremely portable while having soft nylon strings like a ukulele that don’t hurt my fingers after a long day of climbing. Yet I can play it like a guitar and sing along. It sounds amazing and every guitar player should have one. Did I mention it’s super affordable too?"


- Katie Martin

codabow diamond GX

Codabow Diamond GX

“The perfectly crafted balance and camber of this bow allows for an astounding capability for clear tone. No matter what you throw at it, the Diamond GX seems to weather the storm like a seaworthy ship. The ease with which one can handle this bow does not sacrifice its versatility or its resonance, however, as it is one of the most capable pro-level bows I’ve ever played.”

- Wyatt Whiting-Hill

Kala Orchestra Mini Guitar

“This small bodied acoustic guitar packs a punch and has the looks to back it up. The striped ebony back and sides are BEAUTIFUL. The solid spruce top sounds great. The build and quality is exceptional. Kala nailed it. It comes with a padded gig bag at this price. This is hard to put down once you start playing it. SO MUCH FUN!”


- Michael Santander

boss 60w katana bass amp

Boss 60W Katana Bass Amp

“I enjoy the journey toward awesome tone as much as I love awesome tone itself. This amp delivers on both! I bought one of these the day they arrived at our store, and I’m still discovering new tone-sculpting tricks and bonus features. It sounds great with virtually any bass plugged into it, and the aux input turns it into a full-blown sound system with articulate highs and tight, punchy lows.”


- Wes McCanse






ibanez b50 banjo

Ibanez B50 Banjo

“The Ibanez B-50 Banjo is the perfect starter banjo. The mahogany neck has a rosewood fingerboard with dot position markers, which makes it comfortable to play. This instrument is a blast for anyone looking to explore a quality new instrument at an affordable price. Ibanez has a reputation for building quality banjos, having even collaborated on an artist signature model with Earl Scruggs.”
