Advices for the beginner/ first- time buyer:
- Do not rush into buying.
- Do research - enough information is available on-line so please research, research. Look for professional blogs, international reviews, magazine reviews, YouTube Reviews, etc. Do not buy guitar X because your friend has it, or any instrument for that matter. This is personal.
- For beginners: questions to ask yourself - How much time will I dedicate? Do I need a teacher? What genre of music do I want to learn, play? This will influence which type of instrument you will want to purchase.
- Do not buy cheap: Buy cheap and you will buy x2, x3 times a guitar until you find one with a good tone and body style or you will have given up entirely. The worst thing you can do is to learn music on a poor quality instrument such as intonation and sound which combined will quickly derail your playing and hearing abilities.
- We source quality instruments world wide. Since 2020 manufacturers and brands had to increase their prices due to C19 backlog and lack of people and material resources.
- We recommend that you budget anywhere between 17K - 25K BDT for an acoustic guitar that will last you a lifetime of playing.
- For Violins we cannot recommend anything less than 50K BDT, this will include the case, the Violins and the bow.
- Keyboards and play along keyboards will soon be available at Dogpatch Music in 2022. Come back soon.
