Opening a tradtional music store. Any recommendations for instruments?
I will open an Irish traditional music store in Kyoto this November.
Now I am only selling flutes and whistles online, but when I opened the store, I am wishing to sell some other instruments such as the harp, hammered dulcimer, bouzouki, tenor banjo, concertina, bodhran, and so on.
Would you recommend some instruments that the price is acceptable, waiting time is not so long, and has a good quality?
In order to see music stores and makers, I will go to Europe for 2+ months from June to September.
I’ll visit France, Ireland, Spain, Germany, Belgium, UK, and Sweden.
Do you recommend any good music stores and makers in those countries?
I know Hobgoblin, Custy’s, Walton, Knotted chode(does it still exist?)
How about Folkfriends and Coda music?
The space is not quite big but I also want to sell CDs. music books.
If you have a chance to visit Kyoto, please come to my store. Its lower floor is an Irish pub which has regular sessions and upper floor is a B&B. Wow, Irish musicians’ heaven!!
