A World of EOFY Fun!

It's End Of Financial Year, it's World Make Music Day, it's all happening!

First of all, it's that wonderful magical time of year when everything seems to be cheaper: End Of Financial Year. We have a great catalogue sale going for all of June and July, so come into the store and pick up a copy of the bright yellow thing on the counter, or to see some of the items on special, click here.


As we mentioned, June 21 is World Make Music Day. What are you doing to celebrate?

There are heaps of fun things going on all around the country - actually all around the world - so check the website to see what's happening near you. Or you could make you own celebration: grab some mates, fire up the barbie and have a jam in your backyard. It's about the joy of making music, so anything, anytime, anywhere would be good!


Our Stock Items of the Week this week are our selection of Yamaha Amps.

We have the awesome THR100H amp head, which is great for flexibility at home and on stage, and can be paired with the THRC112 or THRC212 cabs. It's a mix-and-match that puts you totally in control of your own sound. As well as a great selection of THR Mini Amps, Yamaha gives you an all-round menu of sound options.


And it's Friday, and we know what that means:

See you next week!

RuralAid - Giving the Gift of Music

Have you heard of Rural Aid? It is a not-for-profit organisation who help provide hay to farmers in need.

They also run a program called Gift of Music which provides instruments to children in remote indigenous schools.

Last week a group of eight Brisbane blokes got together with Evan from String Tech who kindly offered to service and repair donated orchestral strings instruments pro bono.

Evan also received support from two musical instrument importers, National Music and F Payton & Son, who kindly donated parts for the instruments.

The boys had a great day together sharing their skills and were able to repair 15 instruments, which will find their new homes during the upcoming Brisbane Regional Youth Orchestra tour to western Queensland.

If you have any playable instruments that you no longer need and you would like to donate them to a worthy cause, you can drop them off to The Music Spot and we will pass them on for you, or go direct to the Rural Aid website and donate direct.

This is a nice story of eight Aussie blokes from the city digging deep to give some bush kids a chance of experiencing the gift of music.

Please help these confused boys!

It's just dawned on our staff that it's Stocktake Time again, and they've realised that they will have to count ALL. THE. STOCK.

That is, of course, unless YOU come in and buy it first, so they don't have to count it! So with that in mind, we have slashed prices across the store, and are getting ready for our HUGE Doorbuster Sale at the end of the month - and then straight into our 25th Birthday Sale in the first week of July! It's all happening down at The Music Spot, and things are disappearing fast, so if you've had your eye on something for a while, now is definitely the time to come down!


The store is getting ready - piles and piles of new stuff arriving and the sense of excitement in the air..

Well, after the unpacking was done, that is :P The new shop layout is working brilliantly and we have some really cool new items coming in, so if you haven't been down in a while, it's a good time to check back and see what we've got!


And one of our favourite lines to stock are our Vox amps. If they were good enough for The Beatles and Brian May, they're good enough for us!

Just some of our favourites include the AV30 Analogue Valve Modelling Amp, which is on a great sale price at the moment. The gorgeous limited edition white series includes the AC10C1, one of the first Vox amps ever. Then we have the AC15 Custom Twin, which is a 15W all valve amp, with 2 Celestion Greenback speakers. Or if you're after something BIG then give the AC30C2 a try. We have a Vox amp for every application!


And for our Friday Funny, it's the eternal conundrum of bands with two guitarists:

Have a great week, see you next time!
