Why Shop at Elderly Instruments?

We’re a real music store, since 1972: No basement-run Internet shop, no warehouse with a computer terminal, just a real store with real people (most of whom are musicians) here to help you in any way we can. Our instruments are displayed between other instruments, not between the vacuum cleaners and the microwave ovens. Come in and play any of our instruments. You don’t have to ask permission, and whether you’re buying or just dreaming, it’s fun. Or if you can’t make it in, we can play the instrument for you over the phone.

Competitive pricing: We work hard to bring you the lowest price we can. Compare-we think you’ll find our prices are fair and that they stand up to the competition.

One-stop shopping: Stringed instruments, accessories, books, CDs, instrument parts, repairs, and much, much more. We sell everything you need to learn an instrument or to improve your musical skills.

Thousands of instruments in stock: More guitars. More banjos and mandolins. We have the instrument (or the amp or the effect, etc.) new or used – that is right for you, including many built by individual craftsmen that other stores just don’t carry.

We ship faster than ever: We’re shipping over 95% of our orders within 24 business hours. And for many of our orders, we’re shipping same day. We also offer some enhanced shipping options that will further minimize your wait – all so you can enjoy your purchase as soon as possible.

Ready-to-play instruments: Our repair staff inspects and sets up every new instrument we sell so that you get the best playing and sounding instrument possible. Fresh-out-of-the box is not necessarily a good thing for an instrument, we make sure it’s right or it goes back in the box and back to the factory.

Experienced repair shop: Our staff of 10 repair people has over 150 combined years of experience. No repair is too big or too small. We are a factory authorized repair/service center for many of the stringed instruments we carry. We know our stuff, inside and out.

We accept trade-ins: Whether you’re upgrading, changing instruments or simply building your collection, we can help. You can trade in your instrument, consign it for sale, or we could buy it from you.

We also stock hundreds of used and vintage instruments: Our practice of accepting trade-ins as well as consigning and buying instruments gives us a steady stream of used/vintage instruments to offer for sale. Many are set-up and repaired as necessary by our repair shop, while some are offered “as-is”, requiring as little as re-stringing and minor set-up. Those instruments requiring more extensive repairs can be great projects for the “do-it-yourself” enthusiast.  

We have the answers: We play what we sell. We teach what we sell. Like you, we’re musicians and we care about instruments and the people who play them. We care about you, and we care about music.

At Get-it-all.net, Our goal is to make it easier for you to find the best deal on the net!  When shopping with us, we provide all upfront costs to you without the need of creating an account, having to contact someone, or entering a checkout process to see our shipping charges.

We always do our best to meet or beat any competitor’s total price on all of the items we offer on our web site.  If you find a lower price online simply use the “PRICE MATCH” link in the items description page and provide us with:

  • The lower price you found
  • The web site you found this price
  • Your name
  • Your email address

We highly encourage you to look at the total purchase price when price comparing different online stores.  What does this mean?

Total Purchase Price = Item Price + Shipping and Handling – Coupons or Discounts

Many online merchants price items at rock bottom low prices and hide the total cost of purchasing an item with high shipping and handling fees.  Many keep this information hidden until you signup for an account, or are near the end of the checkout process.  In doing this, these merchants are baiting you with what appears to be a good deal, where in reality you may end up paying much more than you would with a merchant that doesn’t follow this potentially deceptive practice.  This practice makes it difficult for customers to make a fair, informed buying decision.  When responding to your price match request, we will look at the total purchase price of a competitor in comparison to us when making our offer.
