This was our 38 Miller Circle location that was destroyed on 10/17/20

Hometown Music is Harrisonburg’s musical instrument store offering friendly local service on guitars and other instruments you can touch and try out. Our pricing matches or beats typical mail-order pricing on most major items. We sell guitars & amps, ukuleles, drums, cajons, digital pianos keyboards, harmonicas and accordions and a good selection of accessories. (and gift certificates)

Hometown is not a catalog or mail-order store and this website gives only a brief overview of what we carry. Feel free to visit our store, call (540) 434-4159, email , or message us on our facebook page if you are looking for a specific item.

We focus on having a good selection of quality, reasonable priced instruments in the store and  give you as much (or as little) help as you want picking out what you need.  Feel free to just come in and try out some guitars.

We are now located at 1931 South High Street next to Early’s Cycle Center.  Please come in and check us out!

 

Casio Keyboards

*For more information about Digital Pianos & Keyboards available at Hometown Music, click here...

Hometown Music carries a popular selection of keyboards from Casio starting at $149.99.  We stock models that are great for beginners learning to play piano, and come with lessons built into the keyboard itself!  We also stock the new CDP-S compact digital pianos which feature remarkably rich sounds and authentic piano feel with the hammer-action keys.

The new Casio CT-X700, released at the 2018 Winter NAMM show, features 600 tones, 195 rhythms & 160 songs with built-in lesson function. The 61 velocity sensitive keys and combined with Casio’s AiX Sound Source make this keyboard sound like a playing a high-end digital piano, but for only $174.99.  The CT-X700 also features a 6-Track Midi recorder for quickly capturing an inspiring melody or recording a new song.

All the Casio keyboards we sell have touch sensitive keys. We consider that to be an essential feature that distinguishes between a real musical instrument and a “toy.”

As a small local store, Hometown has to choose carefully which brands we carry. We want companies that have an established track record of delivering consistent quality for an appropriate price. We need companies that will support us in taking care of customers, and products that offer something different from what we already carry. With all that in mind, we are thrilled to announce that Hometown is now a dealer for Paul Reed Smith SE series guitars and have recently received our first shipment of guitars!
