Staff Picks to Get You Through the Summer


I don't have anything witty to say. It's too hot. Our staff of musicians, students, parents, and teachers share the instruments and accessories they've been loving this summer. Can someone grab me a water?



otamatone deluxe melody

Otamatone Deluxe, Otamatone, and Otamatone Melody


"Tired of practicing on your boring old instruments? Ever wished you could make music with an instrument that had a funny voice and a cute face? Try the Otamatone! They're fun, cute, silly, and come in so many varieties. The Otamatone is the perfect musical instrument that your favorite classical composers wished they had."


- Luis






Eclipse Rechargable Headstock Tuner


Eclipse Rechargable Headstock Tuner


"This tuner is rechargable (finally)! It's very high quality and works just as well as D'Addario's battery powered clip on tuners!"


- Zach









Turquoise Roland GO:KEYS 3

Turquoise Roland GO:KEYS 3


"I don’t know about you but this matches so much of my Southwestern decor. I love this little keyboard. It’s portable, looks super modern, and includes over a THOUSAND sounds from Roland’s historic catalog. There’s so many inspiring features built in."


- Lucille







NU-X Edge Delay Pedal

NU-X Edge Delay Pedal


"This tiny wonder is the sweetest thing, having three distinct different delay styles. It also does the famed dotted eighth note, famous for all kinds of Rattle and Hum. Great sound quality, and high portability make this pedal a must have."


- Syd







D'Addario Rosin Guard

D'Addario Rosin Guard


"Not only does this rosin case protect the rosin, it also makes it more comfortable to hold. My kids have a much easier time putting rosin on their bows using this product. They love it!"


- Brenda








Humidipak Maintain System

Humidipak Maintain System

"Surviving the 100-degree Arizona heat? Easy for you, but not for your precious instrument! This little magic pouch works tirelessly, maintaining perfect humidity levels to prevent cracks, warps, and meltdowns (literally). Just toss it in your case and let 2-way humidification work its wizardry. No more panic attacks when the thermometer hits triple digits—your instrument will stay cool and collected, ready to rock and roll whenever you are. Rock on, desert dweller!"


- Lowe






HOT PICK!

So nice we had to pick it twice!


otamatone

Otamatone Deluxe, Otamatone, and Otamatone Melody


"These are SO, SO fun! An instrument that anyone can master! Our team saw them at the NAMM show and we're excited that they are available to retailers for the first time. We've got three sizes and tons of colors. Oliver even said he would start a group class for those interested!?! Stay tuned!"


- Leslie
