New Instruments

New Instruments

While we do sell some professional instruments, especially in our used inventory, our inventory of new instruments mostly focuses on high quality instruments for the beginner and intermediate player.  There's a lot of junk out there in the beginner market, and we take great pride in making sure that none of that junk makes it onto our floor.  We're very aware that learning on a bad instrument can discourage the student from enjoying his or herself, leading to frustration and eventually giving up altogether.  We've even seen quality brands change their country of manufacturing, resulting in inferior instruments, causing us to seek out different brands.  An inexpensive, entry level guitar does not necessarily have to have poor action or play out of tune up the neck!

Guitars & Basses

We proudly stock Alvarez and Washburn guitars & basses.  While these companies also make pro models, their low and mid level guitars are of great quality at an entry level price.  Also, all of our new guitars and basses are professionally set-up by our experienced guitar tech.


We stock a wide variety of ukuleles from such brands as Alvarez, Amahi and Kohala.


Due to the physical size of our shop, we stock just a couple of drum kits at a time, but we are proud dealers of Gretsch, Yamaha and Dixon drum sets.  Need a high quality stand?  Call for a price on any DW, Tama or Yamaha hardware.  For Cymbals we sell Sabian, Zildjian and Wuhan, who happens to make the finest hand made China cymbals on the market.

Band & Orchestra Instruments

Purchase from our rental stock and receive 25% off of the retail tag price.  If we don't already have the new instrument you're looking for in stock, we can request one and have it here in a matter of days.  If you are currently renting and have equity built up, you can buy out the instrument for 30% off of your remaining balance.

Other Instruments

Of course, we also stock harmonicas, recorders, kazoos, jaw harps and various percussion instruments.

There are lots of excellent things about Blue Sky studios.  One of its best nuggets is Bernie Mulleda.  Bernie cannot only play a mean guitar, but can teach it, and can also fix it.  Or set it up if you’ve got something new and need to get it where it is just right for you.

"Bernie took an old 70's Ibanez of mine, which basically had become unplayable, and transformed it into one of my finest playing guitars. His experience and skill in guitar repair speaks for itself."

"Here's a note of praise for your shop.  I have this Epiphone Dot that I bought for almost nothing on Craigslist a while back.  I've been messing with the intonation, string height etc.

"Thanks for doing such a great job with my Epiphone - the buzz is gone, the intonation is restored and the action is playable - great work!  Here’s a sample of some of my work over the last 3 years, hope you enjoy it!"


"We recently rented a clarinet for my other daughter Jessica and the young man at your store is to be commended for excellent customer service skills.  Thank You."

"Blue Sky has been part of growing up for my kids.  We encouraged them to find their musical voice.  We have had children take guitar, drums, and voice at Blue Sky.
