Our retail shops are streamlined and not over packed with items that you don’t need. Our primary business is not selling you gear. Our primary business is teaching you how to play your gear weather you buy it from us or not. Most important since we see our students every week we want to make sure you have the best instrument that fits your needs. Big box stores just want to sell you something and that’s it. We stock the same level of high quality instruments that you can find in any big box and other music stores and online, but the difference is our service, prices for students and our Let’s Play Lesson/Instrument program.
By now you may have heard of our Let’s Play program where we have specific packages of drums, guitars, amps, keyboards and basses that you can get for little to no cost if you register for 12, 24 or 36 months of lessons. No strings, no gimmicks. This way we know you have a nice instrument that tunes up, stays in tune and your chances of success in our lesson programs go way up because we know you will want to play your instrument, and what’s better then a free to low cost instrument? if you are not interested in a year or more of lessons, no problem. You can take monthly lessons with us and we still offer excellent value on instruments in our retail shops.
What Sets Us Apart?
Do you have shopping paralysis every time you go in to one of those big box stores because you just don’t know what to buy (and no one seems to give you a straight forward answer?). Would you take lessons from a big box retailer that just wants to sell you an instrument, even if it’s not the right instrument for you? Of course not. In today’s world we all need straight answers, value and quality at a price we can all afford from someone you know that’s local. We see our customers every week because most of our customers take lessons from us, and we would never sell a customer an instrument or any accessory that they were not happy with. Now, the other guys that don’t offer lessons know that when they sell you something and you are not coming in every week to take lessons they don’t have to worry about the quality, the complaints and their reputation if you’re not happy. They just turn you in circles and before long there’s a new sales guy in the store. Not at Progressive Music Center. We’ve been here, we’ll be here and we’ll give you straight answers every time.
We carry hand selected lines of new gear from top brands such as Fender, Dean and Takamine guitars, DW, Pacific and Taye drums, Sabian cymbals, Gibralter hardware and of course name brand strings and accessories. All at low prices that match those big box stores! We’ve got band students covered too.
Need a school band instrument, book, reeds or other accessories? How about a repair on your current instrument? We handle school band rentals for trumpets, saxophones, flutes, clarinets, trombones, tubas and more, plus we have a terrific repair shop that has completed repairs for hundreds of customers.
“Thank you for having a staff that actually care about their work. In today’s society this is few and far between, especially with young individuals who often glare back with a blank expression when asked a question. I stopped in The Factory location to ask a few questions about taking up the guitar and Kelly took the time to explain – even demo options that I should consider when purchasing a guitar. he had an answer for everything I asked and I am certain he would find the answer if he did not have one. Thanks you for being a stand out in our community”.
