There is almost no music gear we won't take in trade! We typically offer 70% of fair market value in trade, so if your gear is worth $100, that is $70 for you that can be used to get anything in the store! If you don't want to trade, and would rather get cash for your gear we can help! We offer consignment, and a competitive tiered commission rate. Depending on the value of your item, we make take only 15% of the final sales price! Give us a call or stop on by!
Guitar Setups! - If your guitar just doesn't seem to play as well as it used to, or maybe just sounds...wrong? You may just need a setup! By adjusting neck tension, moisturizing the fretboard, checking the saddles, moving string height, we can have your guitar playing better than you ever thought it could! A setup only costs $20, and makes a world of difference. We don't charge to take a look, so we can even advise ahead of time if you need a setup!
What Chain of Effects Pedals Makes Life Easy? - So awesome, you bought a whole bunch of effects pedals. You bought the fanciest pedal board. Now your tone sounds horrible, and for the life of you everything just sounds like a musical car crash? The order of effects pedals can greatly change the way they interact, and if placed in a more logical order, your pedals will play nicely.
Memorize this line: What Chain of effects pedals makes life easy?
So, the order is; Guitar (or Bass)-> Wah → Compression → Overdrive/Distortion/Fuzz → EQ (or tone shaping pedals) → Pitch (octave pedals) → Modulation (Phaser, Flanger, Chorus) → Level (Volume pedal) → Echo (Reverb, Tremolo, Vibrato)
Using this simple tip can make everything sound much smoother and easier to control, but as always; EXPERIMENT!!!
