Marini Music, 222 W. Main St., is also known as the “Biggest Little Store in the Valley” that still offers sales and service. It’s the music store that musicians and musicians-to-be go to for an instrument to buy or rent, to have a musical instrument repaired, to arrange music lessons, or just to hang out with musicians.
Some think the strength of Marini Music is the product for sale, and many rely on Marini Music for keeping their instruments in top repair. But owner John Marini is the one who keeps everyone happy — with 38 years in the business, first with Pedrini’s and now with his own store. He is a musician who knows “the what” and “the why” and “the how” of music.
For those who are in the market for a guitar, acoustic or electric; bass; keyboard; PA gear; drums; and sheet music, visit Marini Music. The in-store displays will whet appetites — those beautiful Fender and other guitars, gleaming in bright colors, are looking for an appreciative home. When a customer purchases any guitar over $100, four free lessons are included.
Ukuleles, currently a hot item in Alhambra, are also available at Marini Music.
Marini Music has an assortment of “method books”— how to learn to play instruments— and lots of sheet music to add to one’s repertoire.
Live, in-store musical events are regular happenings at Marini Music, from the recent Love Song concert on Valentine’s Day to the quarterly cancer awareness, fund raising events with featured musical artists. Check out the Web site, www.marinimusic.com, to keep “in tune,” and from there transition to Marini Music’s Facebook Page where one can keep up-to-date on everything Marini.
Some typical Facebook comments from customers are, “Whatever you need, Marini Music can get it for you’; “The staff is always friendly, helpful, and extremely knowledgable. The prices are always reasonable’; and “Great place to hang! There’s some cool stuff here.”
Marini Music is open from noon to 7 p.m. Tuesday through Friday; noon to 6 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. The store is closed on Monday.
