Watermelon Music – Davis is Open on Sundays Again!
On April 30, 2013 By admin

Beginning May 5, Watermelon Music in Davis will be open from Noon – 5:00PM on Sundays. 

We’ve noticed how Sundays have become happenings in downtown Davis, with the Flea Market and other events, and have been asked repeatedly by customers why we’re closed.  We’ve worked out staffing and are pleased to announce that we’ll be open for business (both retail and music lessons) on Sundays again, beginning this weekend.

Yanagisawa is Back!
On April 29, 2013 By admin

After many years away, Watermelon Music is happy to announce that we’ve signed up as an authorized Conn-Selmer-Yanagisawa-LeBlanc dealer.  With a heritage of instrument-making in Japan that traces back to 1893, Yanagisawa is recognized today as a maker of the most carefully handcrafted family of artist-level saxophones in the world, and we are proud to stock and sell them.  In addition to 991-Series Alto & Tenor Saxophones from Yanagisawa, we’ve added LeBlanc “Bliss-Series” Wood Clarinets in both silver and nickel-key models.

We have boxes of Digitech pedals (Overdrives, Flangers, Phasers, Artist-Models, etc) that we have had on display and used as floor-models that will be available during our Spring Cleaning Sale at ridiculous pricing.  Most Artist-model pedals ($149.00-$199.00 when new) will be $40.00.  Most non-Artist-model pedals ($79.00-$149.00 new) will be $25.00.  Pricing will (of course) be limited to stock on hand, but there are A LOT of them.  Freshen up your pedalboard without emptying your wallet.
