The D'addario Auto Lock Guitar Strap is one of our most popular straps, but did you know that they come in lots of fun colors and designs?? D'addario has so many options that you can get a different strap for each one of your guitars!" - Luis

"I love this guitar strap! Not only does it come in so many fun colors and designs, it also has built in strap locks! It’s extremely comfortable when holding whatever your instrument of choice is and can withstand an insane amount of weight! I 100% recommend the D’Addarío Auto Lock Strap!! "

4/4 Ruby Montagnana Cello

4/4 Ruby Montagnana Cello


“Also known as the ‘chubby cello.’ The lower bout of this cello is a little wider than your typical cello which gives it an amazing low end.

P. Mauriat System 76 Soprano Saxophone

P. Mauriat System 76 Soprano Saxophone

"This is the first time we’ve had the System 76 in the soprano configuration! I love the brushed finish and cool vibe. It’s a great horn to pick up for summer because most bands don't typically have a soprano sax so the opportunity to double on something and find a new voice is something any sax player would be excited about."


- Leslie (Owner's Choice)

Yamaha Silent Brass System

"A light, compact mute for the brass player with housemates or on-the-go gigger! It has all the features of your favorite practice mute while also amplifying your sound into earbuds - You can still hear yourself blasting away without disturbing neighboring ears!"


- Ru




Ibanez AS73 Cherry Red Hollow Body Electric Guitar

Ibanez AS73 Cherry Red Hollow Body Electric Guitar

"One of my favorite models that Ibanez makes, from their Artcore series, this one is specifically in the Marty Mcfly colorway! They come in a variety of colors and the pickups nail all the classic 335 tones you can dream up. Pair this with a Jazz Chorus amp for some real fun."


- Isaac

Gravity Picks Gold Series 2.0mm Yellow
