Located in the Sierra Foothills on Highway 4, Murphys Music Company is a full service music store that features one of the best collections of Ukulele and Ukulele accessories on the planet.  No matter what your musical tastes are, we’d love to start you in music, it is not hard and you don’t have to be born with any type of ability or be any age to learn music or have fun playing. It is not too late. Art is not hard! If you have questions about your music or your lessons or instrument we would be happy to help you find the answer. Don’t stay stuck! At Murphys Music Company we enjoy supplying you with the instruments and supplies you need to play your best and enjoy making your music in the living room, on the back porch or in the spotlight on stage. We are interested in starting new musicians, teaching you the instrument you want to learn, helping you progress and grow, or in helping you find the right music teacher.

We are dealers for Martin, D’Addario and Ernie Ball strings and have strings in stock for guitars, ukulele, violins, mandolins, banjos, dulcimers, and cellos.  We sell instruments of all kinds including guitars and band instruments and everything in between.  If you don’t see it in the store we can try to order it for you.  We are dealers for all the major print music companies like Alfred, Hal Leonard, Mel Bay, Kjos, and we are happy to have you browse our selection and to order any book for you if we don’t have it in stock.

We do repairs and adjustments on instruments of all kinds. Our repair department can do restorations and rebuilding of instruments. Many minor repairs and restringing can be accomplished right on the premises, however restorations and larger repairs, those which may require more time, superior fire-power, or nuclear weapons, are taken to our well-stocked, top secret, controlled access, CIA underground basement laboratory, which is at an undisclosed location in a blank space on any map. There, in climate controlled comfort we can carefully evaluate, disassemble, or rebuild your instrument, away from prying eyes or inappropriate questioning freeloaders. Only personnel with appropriate top security clearances and very high levels of training are allowed in or to touch your instrument or to give advice. Well, except for Smokey, the laboratory cat, who is in charge of seeking comfort at all times.

Call or come by and visit.  We are always happy to help.
