With the latest expansion, our store has grown by no less than 800 square meters. The new areas are connected to the original building and filled to the brim with merchandise and the latest music technology. Our goal is to create the most exciting music store in the world here in the humble Treppendorf, merging the online shop and physical store.
Completely revamped drum and brass sections
If you’re a drummer or brass player, you have something to look forward to because the drum and brass sections have undergone exciting renovations. Are you searching for a new cymbal? Our new cymbal section is twice as large as before (and it was already substantial)! With over 1,300 different playable cymbals in our new stylish demo cabins, you’ll feel like you’re in Cymbal Heaven. A dedicated snare area will make drummers’ hearts beat faster. Just drop by for a test!
And while you’re looking for a new instrument in currently Europe’s largest low brass or tuba exhibition, you might notice our new innovative tuba and euphonium holder. There will be further adjustments to the inventory in the expansions, so stay tuned.
