I LOVE small independent music shops. The staff are generally more knowledgeable and helpful and mostly they carry an equally good range of product compared to the big boys on the block. They are generally no more expensive, and often can be cheaper. They genuinely want to sell you the best product for you, your playing style and existing equipment, because they want you to come back, unlike some places … (rant over)
The Mozztronics range of guitar and bass effects pedals are now available for sale at the most excellent Australian online store Peerless music (who ship all over the world), as well as retail stores Pony Music in Hallam (Melbourne), DW Music in Canberra, Guitar Garage in Rose Bay (Sydney), The Bass Centre in South Melbourne, Bass Workshop in Hughesdale (Melbourne), Music At Noosa in Queensland, Black Arrow Guitars in Adelaide and at Captain Cherry’s Guitar Lounge in Castlemaine in rural Victoria.
Pedals are in stock at all shops.
Steve and Peg run Peerless Music. They stock a huge range of pedals, including some absolutely world beating product from Australia, they ship everywhere.
Evan is the main guy at Pony Music in Hallam which is in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Despite being a drummer (!) he is extremely knowledgeable and will recommend the best product for you to get the sound you want. There is an awesome recording studio there as well as several rehearsal rooms with very nice room pa systems.
DW music are in Canberra, and stock a huge range of quality gear. Mozztronics is honoured to be stocked in such esteemed company. Ask James to show you the Mozztronics pedals they have in stock. He might even let you “Turn it up Loud”.
Gentle Folk (and headbangers) of Sydney Town you can now try out Mozztronics pedals at Guitar Garage in Rose Bay. Guitar Garage started in 2002 and is run by Brent who has been there and done that in retail, as a guitar tech for touring bands, and music production. Brent is a man after my own heart, his mantra is “affordable hand selected guitars that play excellent at a reasonable price”. From beginners to pro’s Brent will give you honest advice and wont try to sell you something you don’t need.
If you’re in, or visiting Melbourne, and you’re responsible for the bottom end, you need to check out the Bass Centre in South Melbourne. Guy Palmer & the team will look after whatever it is you require, from picks to strings, pedals to amps, and of course bass guitars of every sort. Mozztronics bass pedals are in stock and ready to be “turned up loud” to rattle some windows and shake some walls.
Pop in and say hi to Jeff , Tim and the team at Music At Noosa. A fantastic shop full of everything you could possibly need and servicing the sunshine coast for over 16 years. Worth the drive up from Brisbane.
Drew & Heejoo run bass workshop in Hughesdale (near Chadstone) in Victoria. They carry a great and everchanging range of basses, including some locally hand crafted beauties. Check out the Polaris basses which are handcrafted in Melbourne & the newer ones feature a Mozztronics onboard preamp designed specifically for Polaris. Pop out the back & visit the “Entwhistle Room” a wonderful, yet eerily spooky experience.
Scott and Liz are the awesome team at Captain Cherry’s Guitar Lounge located right in the heart of Castlemaine in rural Victoria only 90 minutes from Melbourne. If you are in the area, its well worth dropping in for a visit. The stock changes often so you never know what gem you will find there.
IF YOU NEED TUBES
I would also like to highly recommend my tube supplier. Neil at thevalvestore.com.au
Neil is very knowledgeable and helpful, and carries a great range of new and old stock tubes at very reasonable prices. Neil is in Mount Waverley in Melbourne. Check out his website if you need tubes, including hard to get tubes. Neil has digital tube testers and can supply matched sets as well as doing overnight burn ins.
Neil doesn’t stock my pedals, but if you need tubes, he’s the guy to see !
