Back To Lessons and New Hours

As I'm sure most of you are aware, the summer holidays are drawing to a close. As such, the regular school year activities are resuming, which of course means music lessons. Theodore, Joseph, James, Eugene and Marissa are all resuming their regular music lessons as of September 4th, so if you are already signed up, don't forget to show up. If you are thinking of taking lessons, the sooner you register the better, as our teachers availability is going fast. Joseph is already booked up, but may be accepting more students later on this year, and Marissa has only a couple spots left. We are having our official Registration week from Sept. 4th to Sept. 9th, but you can certainly register sooner than that, or later if there are still spots available. As part of Registration Week, if you mention this add, you will get a 10% discount off any purchase (except things already half price) if you are registering for at least 1 month of lessons at that time.  Along with the return to regular lessons is a return to regular store hours. We will now be open again from 10am-8pm Monday- Friday, and 10am-7pm Sundays. As always if you can't make it in during those hours, just give us a call (780)986-2251 during the day, and we will try to arrange a time you can come in after hours or on a weekend.  Hope to see you soon.

New Hofners

   We Recieved our 3rd ever shipment of Hofner guitars and basses. In this order we got another acoustics, 3 solid body electric guitars, a semi hollow electric, and another solid body bass.
   The acoustic is a GA07, which is their mid-sized acoustic body, with Rosewood back and sides, a solid spruce top, gold hardware, Grover machine heads, and a B-Band under the saddle pick-up with a 3 band EQ.
   Two of the Electric guitars are galaxy guitars with 3 Hofner Staple pick-ups, each with an individual on-off switch allowing for a great diversity in sound, as well as a Hofner tremolo system. They are available in metallic red, and White. The other solid body electric is the Shorty travel guitar, which has only a Hofner open humbucker, and volume and a tone control. It has a full scale length, but no body to speak of, making it possible to bring almost anywhere. It is also exceptionally light weight which makes it great for long performances, or just general comfort.
    The semi hollow body electric is the Verythin 3, which has 3 Hofner Black Bar pick-ups, each individually controlled with on-off switches. it has flamed maple back and sides, and a spruce top, as well as a Spruce center block for added sustain and feedback resistance.
   The Hofner HCT185 or Artist Bass, is one of Hofner's only full 34" scale basses. It has to Hofner Black Bass pick-ups, which each have their own on-off switch as well as their own volume and tone control. It has a Maple neck a Rosewood fingerboard, and a Basswood body.
   All in all, they are 6 incredible instruments, with exceptional prices. You can get more information on them by visiting http://www.hofner.com/ or stopping by the store and giving them a try.
