Specialty: Bass 

Music Educationand Background: Just the 7 songs my brother showed me how to play. I learned a wee bit on my own.

Favorite Gear: My Ric 4003 played thru my Marshall JCM800 Superbass. My Music Man 100B sounds killer as well.

Short Story: I Started playing drums in 5th grade for the school band. I was awful at it, but I kept playing through High School. When I was 14, my brother’s band needed a bass player for a show, so I borrowed one from  someone and learned 7 songs, and the rest is history. By the way, I still suck at drums.

Favorite Bands: Jets To Brazil, Fireside, Pantera, The Damned, Siversun Pickups, Beastie Boys, The Church, and White Zombie. 

Favorite Album: The Black Album by The Damned is still my favorite since I was a kid. It’s got everything that a good album needs- Moog synths, piano, acoustic guitars, rocking guitar solos and lots of feedback, crunchy sounding bass tones and loud drums. It is s very dynamic album.

We went on tour and had the time of our lives. To this day, playing guitar and writing songs is something that keeps me happy. I have been fortunate enough to use my experience and knowledge to assist customers of Music Go Round find happiness in their music endeavors.

Music Education-
Recording songs onto tape cassettes off the radio and learning by ear. Eventually this thing called the internet came along. Life saver!

Short Story-
I started playing bass at 14 and switched to guitar at 15. Guys like James Hetfield, Dave Grohl, Gavin Rossdale (at least on Sixteen Stone), and Billie Joe Armstrong were my influences. I prefer to play rhythm guitar-leave the solos to anybody way more talented than I am.
Punk, 80's metal, Alt/Grunge, Classic Rock...as long as there is a hook I'm in. If you like Phil Collins and Eddie Money we'd probably get along.

Current Projects-
In between things  at the moment. Currently I like taking 80's pop songs and giving them a Punk edge.

Favorite Gear- Telecasters, Japanese made  Squier and Epiphones, any amp with a great clean tone. 

Favorite bands-
Metallica, The Misfits, Foo Fighters, Green Day, The Clash...Pretty much any 80's pop. Bryan Adams is life.

Favorite Album- 
 Sports. Ask me tomorrow and I'll have a different answer.

The gear you no longer use could be a Gold Mine!

Instead of dealing with the hassles of trying to sell your gear online or in the classified ads, simply bring your used musical gear into our store.

Our entire staff has been trained to buy and will make you an offer. (usually within minutes). It is simple, quick and easy... and no appointment is needed... stop in when it is convenient for you!


  • Bring your musical instruments with adapters, manuals and related accessories. We also, buy cases, racks, stands, tuners and other musical products! The only things we're not able to buy are:  cables, books, harmonicas, and pianos or organs. 
  • Be sure your musical gear is in good working order. We’ll review and research each item and define a fair market value of your products. While we are doing this, you can feel free to check out all of the cool USED gear in our stores.
  • We then make you an offer based on that fair market value.
  • If you like the offer, we will pay you on the spot by check and you'll be on your way! 
  • Bring a valid Driver’s License or valid Government Issued ID  and complete some paperwork and we'll do the rest. It is literally that simple! (We are required by law to have this information to buy your gear.)



Music Go Round shoppers know what’s cool and what brands are best.  While we buy anything that you no longer use, we pay the most when your gear is clean and in good working condition. 

Music Go Round recognizes that some products are in higher demand.  We have no problem cutting a "big check" offer the absolute top dollar on high end equipment.  We have paid over $20,000 for a single guitar.  


How will you value My equipment?

Our buyers receive extensive training on how to appropriately value your gear.  Each member of our team has likely bought more in the last year, than even the most vigorous gear hounds have in their lifetime!

We typically pay 40-60% of what we can resell an item for.  Some of the factors that affect what we can resell your piece for USED include; what it sold for new, condition, functionality, popularity, best on-line pricing, and our own Music Go Round GoldBook.

We will make you an offer on almost any piece of gear, regardless of condition.  Nothing is too old, too new, too beat up, too cheap, or too expensive.  The only things we're not able to buy are:  cables, books, harmonicas, and pianos or organs.


HOW does Music Go ROund pay?

Music Go Round pays on the spot by check.  All you need is a valid Driver’s License  or a valid Government issued State ID and a few minutes to complete some paperwork.  We'll do the rest.  

Can't I get more if I sell it on my own?
In some cases, you may be able to sell your gear locally for more by dealing with another musician directly.  Music Go Round buy prices are extremely competitive with what you would typically receive when you try to sell it on your own.  Especially when you take into account the time and expense that you'll incur to market your gear.  

We offer immediate payment by check so you can get on with your life, and get the gear that you really want!


Our new site allows our local customers to buy online and pickup their purchases in store.  No more rushing down first thing in the morning for that item just posted to the site.  Buy now and get the gear you want!


What you need to bring to the store:

    • Your valid Government issued photo ID

  • It's not too late for trades!
    • If you have gear, simply bring it in when picking up your purchase.  We'll offer you our trade price in a check.
  • Items must be picked up at the location they are purchased from.

Instrument Exchange Program

Music Go Round Trade In Bonus Program


How it Works         

Bring in any gear that you’re no longer using and we’ll make you an offer to buy on the spot.  If you’d like to apply that offer as a Trade In towards gear or gift cards, we can give you more!


Standard Trade In Bonus 

Music Go Round will add 5% to our offer when you choose to trade toward anything in the store.


Double, Triple, and Quadruple It!

We offer special promotions through newsletters, social media, and surprise in store deals.  Make sure you talk to our staff to stay up to date on special Trade In events so you can earn up to an additional 20% on top of our offer in trade.


The Fine Print

Just like when you sell to us, you'll need a valid state ID.  

There are no restrictions on transactions where you apply the full value of our offer and Trade in Bonus.

For trades that result in a payment to you, the Trade in Bonus is limited to 10% of the retail value of your purchase.

If you earn a 10% Trade In Bonus on $500 worth of PA Gear, and purchase a $300 guitar in trade, the maximum Trade In Bonus earned is $30.


Another benefit to trading!

You only need to pay tax on the “paid difference” of a trade.  It’s like getting another 5.6% added to our offer! 

Trade in $250 worth of gear towards a $350 guitar and only pay tax on the $100 difference.  Music Go Round just saved you another $14!
