On Thursday, November 9, 16 Music & Arts warehouses across the U.S. will be open to the public for the first time for a warehouse sale. From 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., customers will be able to score open-box brand-name instruments, accessories, and sheet music at low prices.

From student band gear and orchestral strings, to unique instruments not usually carried in stores, everything must go. You can find a location near you or preview the warehouse inventory list at

“If your school is on a shoe-string budget or you are stretching your funds, this is a great opportunity to scoop up school instruments at rock bottom pricing,” says Music & Arts national school services director Brian Wilson. 

“The inventory is so deep and wide-reaching, we are confident that any musician will walk away with a bargain,” adds Renier Fee, director of marketing. “But, you must show up early because these warehouse items are on a first come, first serve basis.”
