If you are a musician who enjoys reading Real Rock News, you might want to consider picking something up from the music store. All sales made through the store will help support RRN and won’t cost you a penny more than it would to go directly to one of our retail partners and buy there. When you click through from the RRN store and then purchase, RRN earns a commission which helps support the site.
This is not a big store and probably will not become a big store. The main focus is going to be on instruments that are of particular interest to classic rock fans. The Geddy Lee Jazz Bass, EVH Guitars and that type of thing.
A major retail partner is Musician’s Friend, a company that I can recommend. In all honesty, I’ve not purchased anything from them since I’ve been inactive for a couple of decades, but my brother has purchased both a keyboard for his son and a “Paul McCartney” Hofner bass guitar and was pleased with both the customer service and the products themselves.
I should add that my brother is a notoriously “tough customer” and is not tolerant of any incompetence or other screw-ups. To me, that says Musician’s Friend has their act together.
That’s the no B.S. story on how the Real Rock News Music Store works. You buy something, expect great service from retailers like Musician’s Friend and Real Rock News makes a few bucks in commission. That’s about it.
