Robin Venters Here is a personal note from RV–
Hello, My name is Robin E. Venters. I was born August 26th, 1953 here in Oklahoma City. In 1971,I went to work for Landrum’s Guitar Center at 4305 N. Western, here in Oklahoma City. During the two years that I worked at Landrum’s Guitar Center, I informally apprenticed with the nationally known author, guitar builder, and repairman Don Teeter. The main focus, during my first several years in the music business, was guitar repair. I went to work for Driver Music Company in September of 1973. Driver Music was at the time, the largest music and sound retailer in the state.

In November of 1984,I obtained a position with Peavey Electronics, in Meridian Mississippi. My initial job description at Peavey was Factory Guitar and Amplifier Clinician. My primary duties were to travel with the Factory Reps, and do dealer and consumer technical and sales training. In September of 1987 I obtained the position with Peavey of Authorized Area Sales Representative fro all of Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, and most of Arkansas.

All of this background information is just to say that due to seeing so many retailers, I have had the great good fortune to see operations that really took great care of their customers, and some that didn’t do it so well. My intention is to create a pleasant shop that can provide my family and employees an income stream, while offering the music enthusiast a nice place to shop, free of the chaos of the chain stores, with as good or better prices as any source, filled with both the expected, and the surprising merchandise that will exceed the players expectations.

Great guy, Sound Tech, Plays Guitar - Phil Dietz

Great guy! Phil Dietz

Phillip Dietz is our newest young guy full timer. Phillip is in many ways a great sales person to help many of you, as he is a hobby player, who is very enthusiastic and still learning the instruments himself. A solid player, and a real product knowledge geek, Phillip is on fire for the joy and fun that playing a musical instrument can bring to a person, whether a virtuoso in training, or a casual player who wants to strum and sing fun songs. I’m not saying the older guys around here are “Burn Outs”.. LOL But Phil still gets really excited over a great $100.00 item.

Phillip has also become our top go to guy on sound system rentals, and is going to be our main “Man in the field”, running sound for your events with our newly established outside “Sound Tech” service we are offering. (See Rentals Tab)   ………………………………………………………………………………………………..
