Welcome to Homestead Music!
We strive to be your #1 source for all of your instrumental needs, from school instruments to top-quality crafted guitars and Pro Audio. My name is Jeff, and for me, music has always been a passion from young. Even today, I still unwind by spending some time on a violin or a guitar.
Did you know that learning an instrument has been statistically shown to make kids better at learning other academic subjects? Kids who are involved in music also tend to be culturally better rounded, more socially interactive, and learn important life lessons, such as teamwork. But instrumental music is not cheap. Music programs are usually one of the first victims of budget cuts in most education systems, a statement of where the true values really are. Those schools may be saving money in the short term, but we will all pay for it in the long term.
Playing music is more than a skill; it's a passion. If you don't know how to play, or you don't like playing an instrument, the most expensive instrument made won't help even the tiniest bit. Conversely, if a person loves playing music, and takes the time to learn an instrument, then even the least expensive musical instrument can sound like a million bucks.
On the pages herein is a small sampling of various instruments that, in my view, represent great value. There are also others that, while more in the premium price range, are nevertheless elegantly beautiful and worthy of owning. In every case, I have made maximum effort to bring the best value I can, including factory refurbished instruments - instruments that have been professionally repaired to bring it up to standard. These instruments typically are offered significantly below retail, and the areas of repair are generally not noticeable. I will not sell an instrument that, to me, seems inferior in quality, playability, sound, or appearance. Most instruments come with a factory warranty; but some of the refurbished instruments may have special conditions, or even no warranty at all. In either case, Homestead Music has a 14-day satisfaction guarantee. If you don't like an instrument, you can return it undamaged for a refund.
