Over the years, I have found that the bands I unexpectedly stumble into are often deserving of the most attention. This is one of those bands. Mountain Mover left me in awe and my first instinct was to reach out to initiate an interview. I hadn’t felt this much of an immediate impact from a band […]

For a select few cogniscenti in the drumming world, Guru Drums is the pinnacle of craftmanship, with attention to detail unmatched by any other. When the one-two punch that was director/owner/operator/friend Andy Crosby’s stroke and subsequent announcement of retirement landed in my gut, it threw me into crisis mode. Guru drums had been a bucket […]

Guitar Center, the world’s largest retailer of guitars, keyboards, drums and other musical gear, will hold a grand opening Thursday for a 15,000-square-foot store in Monterey Park. It will be the company’s 40th California location, creating 30 jobs for the city. Guitar Center already has several locations in Southern California in such communities as Stevenson Ranch, Sherman Oaks, Pasadena, Glendora, San Bernardino and Orange. Deep discounts The 7 p.m. event at 3000 Market Place will feature discounts on instruments and equipment, weekend specials on lessons, guitar setups and live music from the Southland Party Band. The bargains will include a Yamaha FX335C acoustic/electric guitar for $179.99, a Line 6 Spider V 20 guitar amp for $99.99, a Mapex Steel Piccolo Snare Drum for $39.99 and 12 sets of Dunlop electric guitar strings for $29.99. Thursday’s grand opening will be followed by an open house on Saturday where customers can meet the store’s instructors, get free intro lessons and receive a month of lessons for $99. The privately held Westlake Village-based retailer has more than 280 stores scattered throughout the U.S. and nearly 200 Music and Arts locations that specialize in band and orchestral instruments for sale and rental. That brings the company’s total to more than 480 stores. Guitar Center also sells instruments and equipment online via its Musician’s Friend website. $1 billion of debt While the company has a massive retail footprint, it’s operating under $1 billion of outstanding debt that emerged when Bain Capital Partners acquired the company in 2007 in a leveraged $2.1 billion buyout. Ares Capital Management took control of the business in 2014 in a $500 million debt-for-equity swap. That occurs when a company’s creditors agree to cancel some or all of the debt in exchange for equity in the company. Guitar Center issued a $635 million bond offering earlier this year that will be due in 2021. Those notes and additional cash will be used to refinance the company’s existing $615 million in secured notes which carry a lower interest rate and were set to mature in 2018. Moving forward “As Guitar Center’s liquidity position is solid, the company is focused on implementing strategic growth initiatives, and already seeing it reflected in its sales and earnings growth over the past few quarters – allowing the company to invest in its business,” the retailer said in a statement. Jeannine D’Addario, Guitar Center’s chief marketing officer, supported that assessment in an interview with Forbes earlier this year. “Guitar Center’s guitar sales over the past year have been the strongest we’ve seen in our history,” D’Addario said. “We think this bodes well for the future and for future generations to develop an interest in and love for playing music.” Guitar Center opened five new stores in 2017 and the company said it will be adding more throughout the rest of 2018. But the business, like many others, has been heavily impacted by online sales. The e-commerce impact Paul Majeski, publisher of Music Trades, noted that as sales of new and used instruments have moved increasingly online with such companies as Amazon, Sweetwater, eBay and Reverb, Guitar Center is still placing a heavy emphasis on brick-and-mortar stores. “They’re moving in a different direction than the market is moving,” he said, adding that about half of the guitars sold today are bought online and shipped to customers’ homes or businesses. “When you get into pro audio category it’s even more,” Majeski said. Industry sales are up Data from Market Intelligence show sales of musical instruments and sound recording gear totaled more $1.7 billion during the third quarter of 2018. That was up 4.1 percent compared with the same period a year earlier. Sales of fretted instruments — including electric and acoustic guitars and ukuleles — rose 7.8 percent to more than $318.2 million, amplifier sales rose 3.1 percent to more than $49.2 million and sales of recording products rose 1.6 percent to more than $104.6 million.
