Hello SNC Stores fans: I have sad news - SNC Stores will be closing up shop at the end of this week. You have all made this store a wonderful place, and this has not been an easy decision to make. I would like to personally thank each and every customer by offering huge discounts on EVERYTHING in the store for the remainder of the week. Save 30-50% on Strings, sticks, picks, and accessories!

Come in soon, it looks like Saturday will be the last day we're open. Stock up on all your favorite accessories, and wish us luck as we enter our next endeavor!


Don't forget to stop in this week! We're clearing out all drumsticks, brushes, mallets, and percussion accessories in the store at COST! This is an amazing opportunity to stock up, but act fast - items will move fast at these prices!


Once again, all week long I'm offering all DRUMSTICKS, MALLETS, BRUSHES, and PERCUSSION ACCESSORIES at COST. These are some AMAZING prices, and this is your one and only opportunity to stock up. Think major brand sticks starting at $6 a pair. I can't stress enough what a deal this is, and how important it is you act fast. Once these sell out, we will NOT be getting more in. In store ONLY!


We are officially sold out of the D'Addario NYXL strings! These have been such a raging success that we've got more on the way, and have now expanded our selection to include more gauges. These NYXL strings are the REAL DEAL, and have made such a great impression that the entire staff of SNC Stores have actually switched over to using these on all our own guitars. Great tone, stable tuning, and easy to stretch, these strings are wonderful.


Name the three most important items in your gig bag! Mine would be:
1) A checklist of all my stuff, so I can make sure I have everything at the end of the gig.
2) Nail clippers.
3) Duct tape/Masking Tape - for taping down cables, patching up broken stuff, labeling amps and settings, labeling pedalboards, and any other thing you could imagine! Must have.


Well, it's endorsement time again: I have to give another shout out to Phil's Clay Bar Detailing Kit. I have a beautiful guitar that I foolishly sprayed adhesive near. It had sticky residue, some scratches, and gunk all over it that had been there years. Yesterday while re-stringing the axe I gave it a 5 minute cleanup with the Phil's Clay Bar Detail kit - It looks EXACTLY like the day I bought the guitar now. Shiny, new, not a trace of the gunk that nothing else would remove. I will definitely start carrying these in the store, and will be buying a few for myself as well.

While on the subject of last night's re-string, I have to mention these new D'Addario NYXL strings. I've tried a LOT of strings since I started working here in our store with over 800 types of strings in stock. Some were GOOD, some seemed no different than others. Some outright stunk. These NYXL are the first string that have actually lived up to the hype surrounding them. they LOOK different. FEEL different. SOUND great. And they needed far less stretching once I put them on, a godsend if you're setting up a Floyd Rose.

So stop in sometime soon, and try out the new NYXL strings from D'Addario. Last longer, louder sound with a nice midrange bump, better tuning stability, and really great tone. This actually might be the next great step for guitar strings.


Today we're going retro! Suggest some favorite albums recorded before YOU were born! I'm starting it off with Jimi Hendrix: Electric Ladyland, recorded in 1968, 8 years before I was born.


Left handed people: Which way did you go?
1) Left handed, plays left handed
2) left handed, plays right handed
3) I'm a drummer, I play with whichever hand isn't holding a chicken wing or beer.


What made you first want to pick up the guitar/drums/bass/microphone/keys?


You're on a desert island forever with a guitar, food, and amp. The amp has only ONE functioning channel. What amp/channel would you want it to be?


Looks like we'll be nearly doubling our Ernie Ball selection over the coming month! Including the new Alumitone strings, more extended range guitar sets (7 and 8 string), and even more gauges of the sets we already carry including the new M-Steels.


My question today: What is your opinion of Blue Steel strings by Dean Markley? I used to love these 20 years ago or so but switched to a different brand. Have you tried them lately? What did you think?


Let's finish up this last month of summer with a holiday sale. Now until Labor Day 10% off for any customers that come into the store and ask for 10% off. I call it the "ask me for 10% off" sale. While you're here, ask how to get FREE PICKS.

Okay everyone, like this post for a chance to win an entire box of Fender 150R strings! That's 12 packs of guitar strings, worth nearly $100! A winner will be drawn next week, and the strings will be shipped right to your door.

(This promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, Facebook. We will select one winner at random and notify them in a private message.)


Guitarists: If you could jam with one rhythm section, classic or current, who would it be? Answer in the comments. My choice would be Fleetwood and McVie from Fleetwood Mac. Sure, Lindsay and Stevie might have gotten the attention, but Mick and John provided the thunder!


Just finished The Music Lesson by Victor Wooten. Great book, and definitely a different approach than the typical music literature I've read. Check it out if you can. So what's YOUR favorite music related book? Let us know in the comments!

Time to give my endorsement on this Phil's detailer kit. Just like the kits for cars, this clay bar detailing kit does a great job of restoring a smooth polished finish. Just finished the free detailing included with every guitar setup here at SNC on a regular customers Les Paul, and the difference is shocking.
