The Music Spot: Stability, Dependability, & Awesome Products

For the second time in 2017, we celebrated the 10th anniversary of one of our teammates: Tamara, one of the hardworking office staff. Just another example of the dedication our staff have to The Music Spot - we are here for you, for the long haul!
Happy Ten Years Tamara!

Another long term staple of The Music Spot is the high quality products you can expect to find here. Let's shine the spotlight on one of the sweetest Basses we have here: Cort.

Cort Basses in stock at The Music Spot
We have two Action Series basses, a 4-string and 5-string, with beautiful open-pore natural swamp ash bodies. These are a great price point for aspiring players who still want quality bang for their buck. 

The next step up is our C5 Plus 5 string bass. Features high end materials and components for the serious player, mahogany body with zebrawood/maple top in a tobacco burst finish. 

We also have a B4 Plus model - the modern bass with classic sound and features. Excellent quality for the more discerning musician, yet still under the $1000 mark. A great deal.

Top of the line is our Artisan Series A4. This is a neck-through-body design for superior tone and string vibration transfer, and features A Bartolini Mk-1 pickups and MK-1 EQ that delivers that organic piano type tone.

Yamaha DTX562 Electronic Drum Kit
Drums and bass just go well together, so let's have a look at one of our best electronic drum kits: the Yamaha DTX562K

This is a great deal at the moment, and features all DTX-pads for snare and toms and a 13 inch vertical motion hi-hat pad with stand and large 3-zone cymbal pads.

Outstanding playability and incredible sounds and features, this is the perfect electronic option for drummers of any level.

If you don't want to shell out all in one go, you can rent this beauty for less than $25 a week. All round, a great deal whichever way you look at it.

TurboSound IP500 & IP1000
Speaking of huge sound, Turbosound IP Column Loudspeakers are what keep us rocking all day in the shop - and let's just say, Taylor's new song has some BASS (and no we weren't ready for it).

The IP500 is designed for maximum portability, and the column sections and subwoofer fit neatly into their included carry bags. Setup is fast and easy; just attach the column section to the base and connect your mic or mixer feed and power. 

It's revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology provides 600 Watts of sonic performance in an easy-to-use, ultra-portable and lightweight package.

The IP1000 features an industry-leading KLARK TEKNIK Digital Sound Processing (DSP), Class-D amplifier and Spatial Sound technologies – plus convenient Bluetooth stereo audio streaming and iPhone/iPad remote control. Three channels of revolutionary Class-D amplifier technology provides 1,000 Watts of incredible sonic performance.

Casio Synthesizers - XW-P1 and XW-G1
Casio Synthesizers are probably the next thing the serious musician needs in his/her/their arsenal. We have the XW-P1 and XW-G1 in the shop right now.

The XW-P1 is a 61 key performance synthesiser with Casio's exclusive (HPSS) Hybrid Processing Sound Source. Providing screaming virtual analog monophonic leads and basses, drawbar organs, complex layers, stereo pianos, drums and more, the XW-P1 has the sounds and real-time control the performing musician needs.

The XW-G1 groove synthesiser is designed for the DJ and club performer providing an interactive step sequencer and a sample looper for digitally capturing performance patterns and external instruments. 

Gretsch G9460

This is all way too serious. This Mr Serious Musician likes to have some fun too, and this gorgeous Gretsch G9460 Dixie 6 String Banjo is the way to do it.

She offers authentic tone and appointments at an attractive price. Features a maple neck and fingerboard with pearloid dot inlay, maple plywood rim and resonator back, 24 brackets, Grover® Sta-Tite™ machine heads, dual coordinating rods, "no knot"-style tailpiece, nickel hardware, 25” scale and 1 11/16” nut. 

Doesn't that sound like fun?

While we're having fun, we have some good news too, especially for parents of school students that are at the very beginning of their musical journey - we were able to source another shipment of Nuova Band Instruments for the upcoming new school year.

Nuova Student Flute, Clarinet and Trumpet - making entry to the music world affordable for every family
Nuova is made by Jupiter Band Instruments, the trusted name in student music education. These budget instruments make it easier for every family to afford their very own instrument, which gives children a greater sense of ownership of their musical education. These quality instruments come in handy carry bags and still make beautiful sounds - so you can hear more than Hot Cross Buns earlier on in the journey!

And for the more advanced students and adult players, we also stock Jupiter and Yamaha Brass and Woodwind instruments, to cater to every sound and every level.

Although The Music Spot has a great reputation as Logan's best guitar shop, we have so much more than just guitars. You'll have to come down to Browns Plains and see for yourself!
