New Tube Amps Have Arrived!

The Fender Excelsior and Fender Greta guitar amplifiers we've been waiting for just arrived.  These amps were at our Anniversary Celebration in May and everyone who checked them out was amazed.  We also finally got in our shipment of the Vox Tony Bruno tube amps. I took the Vox Bruno 18 watt for a test drive. All I'll say is . . . "absolutely awesome!" Come down to Avalon Music with your guitar and take 'em for a spin.

And here's a great video from Fender that will make you smile!

New Low Watt Tube Amps Rock!

Remember the days when a guitarist used a 100 watt amplifier full-stack or half-stack for performing or a “compact” 50 watt 2x12” combo.  I do.  Back in the late 60’s and throughout the 70’s I used a 100 watt Marshall full-stack and a Fender Twin Reverb with a Dual Showman 2-15” extension cabinet.  I drove a van just so I could get my gear to practices and gigs.

There are still venues and musical styles that require these volume monsters, but manufacturers are now providing guitarists with truly compact tube amps that have terrific tone and provide all the volume needed for practices and stage monitoring.  Put a classic Shure SM57 mic or a Sennheiser E609 or E906 on the amp and get all the performance volume that’s needed.  Plus, the prices for these little tone monsters have made great amps affordable.

Class A tube amps with 5 watts of power are made by Marshall, Vox and Epiphone.  And using digital technology there are terrific sounding 15 watt and 30 watt tube hybrid amps, like the Vox Valvetronix and Valve Reactor series, that replicate the sound and responsiveness of true tube amps.

Avalon Music has a great selection of these compact amps and here’s some video links to learn more.

Avalon Music Stimulus Package Report

It was recently announced that the Wenatchee Valley economy is no longer in a recession, but the local is just "skidding along the bottom."  We believe that's hogwash - but then we are "glass half-full people."  So this is just a reminder that Avalon Music has had its own economic stimulus package - and, wow, has it worked.  Sales are up over 2008!

All our Line 6 Spider III amps are gone, but we have all the brand-new Spider IV amps with tons of new features.  We have a limited supply of last year's Vox and Marshall amplifiers at unspeakable prices, as well as the new tone monster VT series amps from Vox with every built in effect you can imagine, the Vox all-tube AC4, the brand new multi-channel MG series from Marshall with that tone only a Marshall can have, and the new all-tube Marshall Haze mini-stack and combo.  Whew!

Our "Why Rent When You Can Buy for Less" student band instrument promotion is still going strong - with flutes, clarinets and trumpets flying out the door.  We'll be announcing our orchestra instrument program in just a few days.

Have you checked out our percussion department?  Drum kits from Sonor and Pearl at every popular configuration and price point, tons of cymbals, hardware and accessories at slashed prices, and one of the best hand percussion selections around.

Oh, and bass players we have not forgot you!  If you want to move up to SWR Pro or Working Pro gear, then we have some unbelievable prices on this top of the line bass amplification.

And there are only 5 days left for our Bose L1 promotion - buy a Bose L1 and get a free subwoofer - and the Fender American rebate of $100, and get a Players Package with a purchase of a Martin gloss top guitar.  Plus, we're still running our promotions for free tom promotion for Pearl Vision drums.

Help us show the people "in the know" that the Wenatchee Valley economy is strong and that great products, competitive prices and outstanding customer service are the key.
