Charvel and Ovation Guitars are Landing!

Well, more of Avalon Music's 2012 stock orders are starting to arrive.  We're excited to have Charvel guitars for the first time in 20 years!  These Charvel models absolutely rock and look beautiful.  We also have Ovation guitars landing - quality construction and that unique Ovation feel.  Check out the Charvel website and the Ovation website.  Let us know what Charvel guitar or Oaation guitar you are looking for - and if we don't have it then we'll get it for you. 

Yamaha Guitars Are Here!

 Our initial order of Yamaha guitars is finally here!  It was like Christmas in February as we opened dozens of boxes.  These are beautiful instruments and the value is amazing.  It's no wonder Yamaha is the best selling acoustic guitar in the world!

We now have Yamaha classical guitars in 1/2, 3/4, 7/8 and 4/4 sizes - from entry level student models to pro level NX models.  We even have classical guitar packages that include including a tuner, gig bag and DVD for under $160.  And the steel string acoustic guitars are gorgeous.  How about a solid spruce top with rosewood back and sides for under $300?  Woo-hoo!  Come on down and take a test drive.  You will love these Yamaha guitars.

Our most amazing find among our new Yamaha guitars was the Yamaha Steel-String Silent Guitar.  We fought over the right to be the first one to plug it in.  All we can say is . . . WOW!  this beauty plays like a high-end traditional acoustic guitar, but is soooo comfortable.  It has a pre-amp with volume, Bass and Treble controls, as well as on-board Reverb, Chorus and Echo effects.  We played this through a Fishman acoustic guitar amp and the sound was amazing!  Plus, there's a built-in headphone amp for jamming when you're camping, on the road or just need to keep the volume down to 0.  Carry it anywhere in its compact padded gig bag!  (that's included, too!)

Whether you're a rocker, singer-songwriter or playing acoustic guitar in a metal band, this guitar is perfect for you!  Plays like butter, sounds awesome, comfortable and absolutely no feedback - none!

Come down to Avalon Music and play this marvelous instrument.

The Wait is Over! Acoustasonic Telecaster!

They have just been released and we have our first Acoustasonic Telecaster!  Wow!  This is one incredible and beautiful guitar.  It has feel of a Tele, with a classic Tele body and neck.  Get the famous Tele electric sound using the neck single coil pick-up or the sound of an acoustic guitar through the piezo bridge pick-up run through a Fishman Aura pre-amp.  Or use a blend of both.  The three position switch selects your sound.  Use it in mono mode through a single amp - or in stereo mode with an electric guitar amp and acoustic guitar amp to create a huge guitar sound!  Here's a demo video.

The Challenge - Sell 150 Guitars and Amps - You Won't Find a Better Deal!

Well "the boss" has told use to sell 150 guitars and amplifiers - yes, that 150 guitars and amplifiers - before Christmas. Our reaction was, "Gee, boss are you crazy?"  (We ask that often, but that is another story - or two.)  With a wink and a nod, the boss wrote down "150 guitars and amplifiers - NOW!" and then putting his finger aside his nose - poof! - up the stairs to his office he rose.  Wow. . . 150 guitars and amps must go.   - or we'll probably find nothing but a lump of coal in our Avalon staff stockings!  This requires serious action!

So here's our challenge - we're slashing prices - and you can check out our prices on guitars and amplifiers and try to find a better Christmas deal anywhere!  Our prices are lower than any price you will find advertised in a catalogue or on the web.  So here are some examples:

All Dean and Reverend guitars are 50% off retail! Godin electric guitars are 40% off retail!  Save 45% on all Marshall pro tube guitar amps, 40% on Fender tube guitar amps and 40% SWR Pro and Working Pro bass amplifiers.  Vox Valvetronix amps start as low as $149.99 after rebates!  That's a savings of 50%!  Plus, during our Fender, Jackson and Gretsch sale you'll get 10% off our lowest prices - not just retail prices.  

And on the acoustic side of the shop you will find Epiphone guitars starting at $99.  These guitars play great, look great and sound great!  Seagulls and Arte & Lutherie are 10% off our lowest pricing and you can save over $1,000 on many of our Martin Standard series guitars.  Acoustic amplifiers from Fender, Fishman and Bose are 10% off our lowest prices.

There's nothing "fishy" about Avalon Music prices.  When you come down to Avalon Music we'll have flyers posted with all the information you need to save a bundle of cash this holiday season.  And by the way, we have perfect stocking stuffers and extra gifts for your musicians in the family - strings, capos, tuners, metronomes, drum sticks, stick bags, USB mics for computer recording, effect pedals and . . . the ever popular Gift Certificate!

So help us out, make the boss happy, and take home a guitar or amp - or both - or at these prices you can afford a guitar or amp for everyone in the family!  Come on down to Avalon Music! 

Rock-tober Sale!

       

Well it's Rock-tober time again at Avalon Music!  Every guitar, bass, amplifier and drum set is on sale, with an additional 10% off Avalon Music's already terrific prices!  We have one of the largest selections in the Northwest, with hundreds of electic guitars, acoustic guitars and basses from Fender, Epiphone, Godin, Martin, Alvarez, Ovation, Seagull, and Arte & Lutherie.  We've got the newest Spider IV amplifiers from Line 6, the Valvetronix, AC4 and Night Trian amps from Vox, the new MG and Haze amplifiers from Marshall, Fender tube amps, Fishman acoustic guitar amps, and thunder-making bass amps from SWR.  Plus, we have the best selling drum sets from Pearl and Sonor set up and ready to go.  Stop by Avalon Music during the Rock-tober Sale and get a deal so great it will be scary!
