Featured Instruments - Alphorn

The Alphorn (aka the alpenhorn or the alpine horn) is a 12 - 14 foot long, natural wooden horn with a conical bore. It originates from the mountainous regions of Europe where it was used for communication purposes by mountain dwellers of the Swiss Alps, Austrian Alps, Bavarian Alps in Germany, French Alps, and elsewhere. Today, it is used as a musical instrument that uses a mouthpiece that is similar to a brass mouthpiece. You may have seen one of these in the popular Ricola cough drops TV commercials!

Camp Cleanings

Summer camp is such a great time. Lifelong memories are created, friendships are formed, progress is made on your musical journey, camp food is enjoyed... and loads of dust and dirt are introduced into your instrument and case.

Tim's Music offers a quick "Camp Cleaning" to take care of that damaging dust.

Come on in right after you return home, and we will take care of the past week's dust. No appointment is needed, just come on in.

Did you know that Tim's Music was just honored as a NAMM Top 100 music store?

See you shortly.
