A sign in a general store read, "If we don't have it, you don't need
it." That implied they carried anything and everything. Maybe so,
but much was probably stuff you'd never want or need.
At Corson Music,
we would rather say, "If we don't have it, we'll get it... just for
you." We'll order it and offer a price that may surprise you. You
don't have shop online for a great deal and here you'll have a lot more
There's the larger main location on University Avenue in Champaign and the Corson Music's Guitar Store
on the corner of Main & Race in downtown Urbana. Visit both
locations and see what each has to offer. If you're tired of those
endless catalog sites full of stock descriptions and tiny photos, you'll
enjoy browsing through the real stuff. We think you might want to play
that guitar or hear that amp before you put your money on the counter.
Plus you just may see an old friend or make a new one.
We can match most
major online retailer's advertised prices on new gear! Plus, all new
guitars can be setup to your liking at no extra charge. You also have
additional security knowing that if you ever have a problem with any
piece of gear, you can have a face-to-face talk with one of our techs
without having to call a support line.
Our commitment has been
demonstrated over the years serving the cities of Champaign-Urbana.
We're staffed by experienced, knowledgeable professional musicians who
will assist you in making the right purchase whether it's an upscale
guitar or an entry level amp. Need help choosing an electronic tuner or a
microphone? We can help with that too.
Corson Music was started
with one purpose in mind... to serve this vital, diverse and active
music community that's flourished year after year. We know how to do
it. Our efforts have been directed to that goal and our success is due
to developing you as a loyal customer.
You probably have an
idea what you're looking for. If unsure, our knowledgeable staff of
working musicians knows the ins and outs of the gear in real world
settings. They hold no bias between brands we carry those we don't.
Quality and reliability are the watchwords. A product may look cool but
does it perform as advertised? How do you get the best sounds? They'll
answer those questions and more.
If we don't have it, we can usually put special orders
in your hands faster than online stores, often, the next day. Plus,
this service is often provided FREE OF CHARGE, with no over-night fees
or hidden "convenience" charges!
