Excellent store for rented sound systems 10/11/2006

While I have my own mikes and a couple of monitor speakers, owning a sound system capable of playing to 300 - 500 people outside is very, very expensive. The speakers alone would have been an addiitonal $1400, easy. Instead, I found that Guitar Works has great renatl sound systems for under $100 featuring Yorkville speakers and powered mixers. The staff was very helpful in showing me how to hook everything up and managing it on the gig. They are real pros there. more

Solid source for live sound equipment 6/6/2006

Last year, I had a festival gig in which I neede to provide a live sound system with enough power for 300 - 500 people in an outside crowd. My regular bass player recommended Guitar works as having quality systems available for rental at a fair price. I provided the mikes and monitor speakers for the stage. They provided 4 great speakers, a powered mixer and all the mike stands and cords I needed for well under $100. The system worked great. It's a lot easier to rent what I need at under $100 a pop as opposed to laying out a couple of grand for a mixer and speakers. Their owner, Terry was great to deal with, and the staff did agreat job of going through the connections and set up. I recommend them highly as a source for rented sound systems. more

Nice selection of guitars!!! 8/3/2005

After looking couple places, I decided to buy my guitar from this store. The staff was knowledgeable and they didn't force me to buy. After I decided to buy, they get me a free case and offered me some guitar classes as well. The guitar that I bought, I'm really happy about it and actually took some guitar classes. They have very good teachers and many parking spaces around the store. more
