It’s been an amazing year and we have you to thank. Our shop started as a small idea... "to provide musicians the easiest access to the best gear." The response from the community since launch has been overwhelming. Again... thank you, thank you, thank you!
Probably one of the most interesting aspects of working with all of you is seeing the trends in preference and taste.
