Summer Sidewalk Sale – Friday, July 8 – Sunday, July 10
On June 25, 2016 By admin

Watermelon Music will be participating again in this year’s Davis Downtown Summer Sidewalk Sale.

Look for closeouts, clearance items, scratch-and-dings, and discontinued skus as well as thousands of sheet music titles at 20%-70% off.

If that weren’t incentive enough to brave the July heat, we’ll be paying the sales tax on all purchases from Friday, July 8 – Sunday, July 10.  The price you see on the tag is the price you’ll pay at the register.

Blackstar Artist15 Blackstar Artist Series Guitar Amp in Stock Now!
On June 16, 2016 By admin

Regulars in our guitar department are aware of how seriously we take guitar amplifiers.  We’re always on the lookout for the next big thing, and tend to value tone and flexibility over bells and whistles.

Allow us to introduce you to “The Next Big Thing…”  The Blackstar Artist15 is an all-tube, 15w guitar amplifier with a single 12″ Celestion V-Type speaker that can genuinely offer the dynamic sensitivity of a classic American (think Fender) amplifier and the chime and shimmer of a classic British Class A (Vox anyone?) amplifier.  Featuring an understated, elegant aesthetic coupled with an all-tube design, the Artist15 is one of the best new amplifier designs we’ve seen in years.

The low wattage makes it perfect for home and studio use, but it’s got enough muscle to play most gigs.  Its ample headroom makes it perfect for use with multiple, complex pedalboards but it’s versatile enough to plug straight in and go.
