Before there was internet browsing, there was actual browsing. McCabe's has always been a place for droppers-by and itinerant musicians to just hang out and poke around. We look forward to the return of those days. In the meantime, we've put more of our in-store goodies online, added a curbside checkout option, and although we are still open for in-store shopping, we ask that you please wear a mask and limit the length of your visit. And if you just feel like chatting, you can always give us a call.
Ask about our in-house, 3-year warranty on almost every instrument we sell. That includes set-ups, adjustments, and anything else your instrument might do to itself (i.e. not broken strings). You’ll also get our 3-year 70% trade-up option. Still not ready? We offer rentals and lay-away plans too.
“No job too weird or too small,” is what our repair shop motto would be, if we had a repair shop motto. Has your guitar (uke, dulcimer, etc.) suffered injury or neglect? Buzzing? Won’t make any sound at all? McCabe’s has the best luthiers west of the Mississippi (probably east too).
Here at McCabe’s, we’ve taught tens of thousands of aspiring (and inspiring) musicians how to play, and we can teach you, too! Our in-store lessons are temporarily suspended during the pandemic but our teachers are still available for remote lessons. Check out our Private Lessons tab for details!
