It's almost SPRING
     Spring is around the corner and we couldn't be more excited! Temperatures and humidity will continue to fluctuate, so it's still a good time to evaluate your instrument for open seams, cracks, and peg issues.
     
     Not sure what to look for? Bring your instrument in for us to check (for FREE) or take a look at our blog "How To Check Your Instrument For Weather Related Damage" for help. Don't forget that all rental clients get repairs at no extra charge and all who have purchased an instrument from us get a one year warranty on all structural issues!
 
     Friendly Shop Reminder: The Merriam and Olathe K.C. Strings locations are OPEN Monday - Saturday and CLOSED on Sundays.
