Tuscaloosa Music Service was established in 1964 by Cliff Hurter and his wife, Mary. What started primarily as a band instrument store evolved with the times into what has become a very popular place for school and combo customers throughout Alabama and Mississippi.
We are West Central Alabama's largest band instrument dealer. We carry top line brands including Bach, Blessing, Buffet, Conn, Gemeinhardt, Jupiter, King, LeBlanc, Selmer, Yamaha, Yanagisawa. Our service department is second to none. In the combo area, we started in the '60's with Fender and have enjoyed their tremendous growth ever since. Their name is synonymous with great guitars, basses and amps.
We were the fifth dealer opened by Peavey Electronics in the '60's. They are the worlds #1 manufacturer of P.A. equipment. They also build some of the most sought after guitars and basses. In acoustic guitars, we carry Takamine, Larivee`, Fender and the hand crafted Guild and Tacoma lines. We have a full line of acoustic amps built by Genz-Benz, Fender and Peavey. In our ever expanding percussion department we carry ddrum, dw, LP, Ludwg, Pearl, Tama, Mapex, Sabian, and Zildjian. Although everything mentioned above is impressive by any standards, it means nothing without the personnel to back it up.
At Tuscaloosa Music, the entire staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. We are either working musicians or have some sort of musical background. We are here to serve your needs! Whether it's the most basic question about guitar strings or a complex question about an elaborate P.A. installation, we can help. Church, school and sports complex installations are a big part of our P.A. business.
Whenever you're in, please ask about our easy 9 month layaway plan or convenient financing. Our purchase plan for band instruments gives the school band parent yet another option. After you purchase your instrument, you may want to get one of our qualified instructors to teach you how to play it! Lessons are available in the store in our dedicated studios.
We look forward to helping you with all your musical needs.
