As a kickoff for our Annual Fall Sale, Watermelon Music and The D’Addario Company would like to give you free strings for your guitar, bass, mandolin or ukulele.

Simply bring your instrument in on Saturday, November 12 between the hours of 10:00AM and 2:00PM with at least two non-perishable food items, and our staff will install a brand new set of D’Addario brand strings, tune and polish your instrument and send you on your way.  Please limit two instruments per person or family.

All food items received will be donated to Davis Community Meals, helping people in need during the upcoming holiday season.  Any extra food donations will be both accepted and sincerely appreciated.

If you have any questions about this annual event, or if you would like to donate your time restringing instruments with us, please call Watermelon Music at 530.758.4010 or email us.
