General Info
Arthur's Music Store has been at the same location in historic Fountain Square since 1952 and is still owned and operated by the Arthur family. Although a lot has changed in the last 50 years, the level of personal service that Mr. Arthur instilled in his family and employees is continuing to provide a high degree of customer satisfaction today. While mainly a fretted instrument store (stocking everything musical except pianos, organs and recording gear), Arthur's Music is known for having a wide variety of products, from guitars to hammered dulcimers. We are one of the few stores in the Midwest where you can find pedal steels, accordions and Irish tenor banjos alongside guitars, basses, drums, amps and PA systems. We buy, sell and trade. Our used stock moves quickly, so just ask and we will keep your requests on file and let you know when something that fits your needs becomes available.​ ​Arthur's Music offers on-site luthier & repair service and stocks parts and accessories for do-it-yourself repairs and customizing. Our staff of instructors offer private music lessons here in the store for most instruments,as well as voice and theory.​​ ​​​ We are pretty easy going here, and don't work on commission, so there are never high-pressure sales. We want you to be happy, come back often and keep playing the music you love!

I am happy to be a customer. The knowledge young sales lady helped me find and purchase the best guitar for my budget, a beautiful Seagull S6,. Arthur's provided free labor to install a pickup and adjust the action beautifully. Everyone I've met and dealt with in the store has been friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I love being able to get such good selection and service from a locally owned business.

I have been a patron of Arthur's Music Store for over 10 years now. I love the people and I love the feel of this old Downtown Landmark. If you need new gear or your old gear tuned up this is the place to go!

Arthur's Music is a landmark music store in Fountain Square. The staff is friendly and the prices are affordable, even if the selection might be smaller than your average chain store. Highly recommended.
