Winter is here, the air is dry, and you should be humidifying your instrument! Please ask if you are not sure how to keep your instrument in great shape over the winter.
We are Southwestern Wisconsin’s premier folk instrument shop. We carry unusual and hard to find musical instruments from around the world, alongside a wide selection of acoustic and electric guitars, ukuleles, banjos, dobros, mandolins, drums, orchestral instruments, and all the necessary musical accessories.
We both play parlor guitars, and we specialize in small body guitars from a variety of makers, from orchestra and concert models to parlors, mini, and travel guitars. You’ll love the sweet tone and comfort of these models.
We also carry the Midwest’s best selection of ukuleles, and often have over forty models on the wall. Ted has played ‘uke for two decades, and brings that experience to our ukulele classes and to help you find the perfect ‘uke.
In Catherine’s ‘flute corner’ you will find new and used concert flutes for sale and available to rent, alongside flutes from Ireland, India, Japan, and South America. We also carry locally crafted Native American Flutes from two different makers.
We offer lessons on guitar, ukulele, banjo, bass, flute, and voice, and have a great rental program. We accept trades and consignments, and buy and sell used instruments.
Have fun exploring our site and be sure to stop in our store and say “hello”.
