What You'll Get
Studies show that children who don't learn to play a musical instrument often try to eat one. Save your offspring from an awkward doctor's visit with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of musical instruments, accessories, books, and anthologies at Willis Music, valid at the three Cincinnati locations and at the Florence location.
For more than a century, Willis Music’s staff of dedicated musicians has guided fellow melody makers of all levels through a jungle of more than 3,000 instruments and accessories. Though in-store stock may vary, patrons can peruse racks for catalog items such as a Planet Waves chromatic headstock tuner, which dials in string tension using vibration ($39.99), or they can pacify rampaging folk singers with strums on a ukulele ($37.50+). A Peavey bass amp ($99.99) provides modern and vintage voices for bass guitars, and metal-encased DigiTech effects pedals ($49.99) awaken drowsy ears with four roaring styles of distortion. Customers can beat out rhythms on the skin of a Toca street djembe ($49.90) or browse various other African, Caribbean, Middle Eastern, and Irish hand drums captured, tamed, and refurbished by independent craftspeople.
Against a sonic backdrop of classic rock, patrons choose musical companions from a selection of orchestra brass and strings, pianos, keyboards, guitars, and percussion, browse Beatles and Rolling Stones anthologies, or explore a sheet-music section. Many high-end axes and other delicate instruments reside in a humidified room to prevent damage from excessive dryness and camels attempting to practice "Stairway to Heaven". Two of Willis’s locations contain auditoriums, and the third houses a stage, all of which play host to free jam sessions, recitals, and meet-and-greets with visiting artists. Representatives from Fender, Yamaha, and other companies keep staff members up to date on their latest creations, and Willis Music extends a complimentary one-year warranty on all items.
