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.

Casio Keyboards

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 keep a couple of compact digital pianos in stock, the Privia PX-160 & the CGP-700, both 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 $179.99.  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.”

We Now Carry PRS Guitars!


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!
