"I'm a mom who makes boutique guitar pedals. Learned the ropes while working for industry legends Mike Matthews and Robert Keeley. Naturally, I started tweaking and designing pedals of my own. Friends started asking for them, then friends of friends...so here we are."

WHAT OUR FRIENDS & CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

★★★★★

Bought a beautiful used guitar online from here. They even checked the guitar and straightened the neck for me before shipping. The guitar was well packaged/protected and arrived quickly.

Diego Garcia

There are a lot of things to like about The Music Emporium, but first and foremost is how it has embraced innovative, independent builders.

★★★★★

If you're looking to purchase a quality instrument, this is the place. When you enter, it feels as such, comfortable rugs and sofas and a crew ready to assist. And if you aren't aware, it's one of the few such places in the U.S. Do yourself a favor and stop by, even if you're just browsing.

Scott Rule

High end selection, great environment, unpretentious...awesome!

Bill Collings, Founder of Collings Guitars
★★★★★

This is what all guitar stores should be like. Laid back sales staff ready to answer questions, but also stay out of your way to let you really play whatever guitar it is that suits you. And boy howdy do they have a great selection of instruments to choose from or what? Both electric and acoustic, if you can't find something you like, maybe you're not a guitarist in the first place.
