The heart of our business is focused on all things related to acoustic music. We specialize in, but are not limited to, Folk, Bluegrass, Irish, Native American and World music.

At first glance our showroom may seem small, but look again and you will see it is full of the familiar (like guitars, banjos, mandolins, etc.) AND the unexpected (like bodhrans, ocarinas and doumbeks, to name a few). Instruments, accessories, supplies, parts, books and videos can all be found here. But that is just part of the equation. What sets us apart is our remarkably knowledgeable staff. With between 15 - 45 years of experience here at our store our employees are here to help you find the right string, the right instrument, or something in between. Please visit our About Us page to learn more about our store, meet our staff, and take a virtual tour. Please look to the left of this page if you would like to browse our on-line inventory, go to our Directions page to see where we are located, or head to our Contact Us page to call or email us.


Our on-site Repair Shop has been in operation since we first opened in 1966 and we are a warranty service center for MANY manufacturers. Please visit our Repairs page to see a complete list and to learn more about what makes us unique.


You may have heard the expression, “Those who can, do; those who can't, teach”. That is NOT the case with our teaching staff! We pride ourselves on the fact that our teachers are not just talented musicians, but are also skilled instructors. We offer lessons in a wide range of instruments. Please visit our Lessons page to meet our instructors and to find out more about our teaching center.


"Build a better mousetrap and the world will beat a path to your door." (Can you tell we like expressions around here?) Okay, so the world hasn’t exactly “beaten” a path to our door – but we have folks from all over tell us how much they like the products we make including ukuleles, bodhrans, instrument straps and cradle boxes. Our sister business – Buck Musical Instrument Products – is where we strive to build the finest instruments and instrument accessories. Please visit Manufacturing to learn more.

And, remember, we all love the Internet and all it has to offer. But if you have a question that we haven’t answered here, please call us at 215-345-0616 or send us an email. We love talking with people too!
