sheet music to that new song you want to learn, a seasonal guitar strap or anything thing else musically,
Willis has what you need.

Come on out, tune up, warm up your vocal cords and picking fingers and we’ll make some music on
Wednesday, October 16th from 6pm to 7:45pm. See you there!!!

Q: How many guitar players does it take to screw in a light bulb?
A: 13 – one to do it, and twelve to stand around and say, “Phhhwt! I can do that!”

Tuba Player: “Did you hear my last recital?”

Cymbal Vote 2013 is Coming!

vote 2

What is cymbal vote???

Cymbal Vote allows drummers from around the world to determine what new models SABIAN will introduce in 2014. SABIAN has long been known for its innovation in cymbals, and frankly, each year we develop more cool new ideas than we can introduce as new products in a single year. So we decided to let you decide! These drummers get to hear cymbals never seen before and comment on how each performs; could be improved or what they love about it.

Want to hear these cymbals for yourself? A limited number of Cymbal Vote Tour stops have been scheduled around the world. Willis Music in Louisville is proud to have been asked to participate in this; join us Saturday, October 12 at Noon to be a part of this!

The votes from drummers from around the world will decide which 4 cymbals become the new models for 2014 and get to wear the Cymbal Vote crown. The winners will be announced at the NAMM show in January and available in local retail stores soon after that.
