Custom Sound is Growing.
Big changes are happening. We are very excited about the upcoming move. Please keep reading for all the details.
You might be familiar with our lesson partners across the street, the Thomas Byers Lesson Studio. If not, they are located half a block south and across the street from us, in the shopping center with the barber shop and the art supply store: 120 South Beaver Street.
The main store is moving. The repair shop is staying.
We are moving our entire retail operation into their space, taking over the walls and converting the main area into an awesome and proper music store! We are merging— joining forces to offer a better store experience with an excellent lesson program and a larger selection of instruments and accessories.
“We’re getting bigger and better by merging with the Thomas Byers Studio, and also enabling our repair facility to grow and flourish as a custom guitar building operation.” ~Ryan Elewaut, owner
The current location will still be the repair facility. We are converting more of this old house into a guitar building operation with additional benches for repairs and restoration projects. The repair shop will become a by-appointment based situation with some open house hours, but the new store will have expanded hours! Don’t worry, we’ll make arrangements with you to drop off and pick up your repairs from either location. You can still come by the shop with any repair issues, just knock on the door.
We go live with the new store on August 1st. The Grand Opening party will be Friday, August 4th. For the first month we will keep similar hours at the old store, but we encourage appointments to visit and spend time with one of our luthiers.
