Family Owned Since 1967

Our family owned and operated store was founded in 1967 by John and Sally Carlton. Originally located in a small shop on 4th Street, we moved a few doors down in 1976 to our current Winter Haven location on the corner of 4th Street and Ave D NW. As our business grew over the years, we have added a second location in Lakeland, Florida on Harden Boulevard.

We sell a full line of musical equipment (excluding acoustic pianos and organs). Our inventory includes guitars and amps, band and orchestral instruments, pro audio gear, lighting, keyboards, drums and percussion, music books, and more. We also offer affordable monthly school instrument rentals, as well as overnight and weekend rentals on select instruments and equipment.
