Appalachian Music Shoppe

Located in the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina in historic Boone, Appalachian Music Shoppe is a unique kind of musical instrument shoppe. In these days of large corporate chain and internet stores, Appalachian Music Shoppe is proud to offer a hands-on relaxed, helpful atmosphere. They feature over 200 guitars, mandolins, banjos, violins/fiddles, dulcimers, basses, dobros, and other instruments. Some of their instruments are handmade by the owner, Bobby Norris, and their in-house luthier, Dick Wilson. They specialize in bluegrass and other folk music styles but they cater to musicians of all types. They do all types of instrument repair and offer in-store-financing. They are located on the Highway 105 Extension in the Carriage Square Complex, across from Southern States Subaru. Their hours are Monday thru Friday, 9:30 to 5:30 and Saturday, 10:00 to 2:00.


This is your opportunity to get to know them and the shoppe, and learn a bit about what they do and what they offer. They strongly believe that each instrument is unique, and they encourage their customers to come visit them and experience instruments first-hand. Their motto is "Play It Before You Buy It". You are welcome to come in and stay as long as you like and play as many instruments as you like. They just wouldn't have it any other way!!
