A bigger location has advantages off Dallas Highway.. In Short Since around the time of World War II, Ken Stanton has been selling musical equipment and providing lessons for Marietta. With a much larger, sectioned space off Dallas Highway than its predecessor down the street, the new place allows the customer to demo instruments as they are meant to be played. A large wooden acoustic room makes all their Gibson acoustics or Fender mandolins sound great while the amplifier room is sealed off so you can wail away like you would in your garage or on stage to make sure you know what you are buying. Pretty much a one-stop shop for bands, the drum and piano section is also plentiful and the prices aren’t too shabby.
