What Our Clients Are Saying
My husband and I went running around town today to several local music stores around the valley. House of Guitars and Salt City Drums were the only stores that actually engaged with us at all. House of Guitars will definitely be our go-to for guitar- and amp-related needs. They also helped me pick out an awesome vintage bass, and let us know that they give lessons as well. We'll for sure be back and will recommend them to our musical friends! -- Jen Jesse
