About Us

LOCALS was founded in 2008 by brothers Steve and Joel Bond.

Why the name LOCALS?

Because we aren’t the BIG BOX corporate chain music store. We live and run our business in the community like the traditional neighborhood Mom & Pop music stores everyone remembers.

LOCALS carries a large line of instruments including: electric and acoustic guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, folk instruments, percussion, and accessories. And of course, we stock amplifiers, guitar straps, cases, strings, picks, effects pedals, drum heads, drum sticks, mixers, cables, and much more. Well known brands such as Fender, Takamine, Seagull, Schecter, TAMA, Gretsch, Sabian and too many more to list are available. We also trade in and  buy used gear.

Lesson studios are also located within the store. The studios offer a safe and professional environment for students of all ages. We currently offer lessons in guitar, bass, piano, voice, and percussion. Plus there’s the added convenience of the store should the student need new equipment, accessories, music, or minor repairs. Parents are welcome to stay in the waiting area, or to return at the end of the lesson.


We would be glad to help you whether you are a beginner or a professional.
We offer competitive pricing and great customer service.

Why do you have Surf Gear?

Seriously.....who doesn't like surfing?  We like surfing!......and we also like stand up paddleboarding and SUP surfing.......and we like music!


It's a match made since the beginning of  Rock and Roll............
Dick Dale and his Del-tones  "Misirlou",  The Ventures  "Walk Don't Run",  The Safaris  "Wipeout",  The Chantays  "Pipeline"  and the The Lively Ones  "Surf Rider" .....Frankie and Annette...The Beach Boys.....where do you stop?   "Surfin Bird" by the Trashmen went to number 4 on the charts for crying out loud!  The guys were from Minneapolis of all places.  (there's really something wrongly right about that when you think about it)

We keep a pretty good stock of surfboards, SUP's and accesories.
So all you surfers and paddleboarders.....come by and get your gear "LOCAL-LY" before you head to lake or beach!

If you aren’t able to come by the store, please take a look at our online store, or

Call us at 919-362-9229.

We’d like to thank all of you who have already made LOCALS your music store and for the support you’ve given us. We appreciate your patronage.
