Diamond Guitars Hard Shell Cases on the way !!!

Hello from Memphis.

i just received news from the CEO of Diamond Guitars, Jeff Diamant, that a large shipment of Diamond Guitars Original Hard Shell Cases is on the way even as I write.  Delivery date is expected to be 14 March 17' unless any US Customs issues present itself. 

I just updated my online inventory, but I know I'll get more Bolero, Maverick, Imperial, and Halcyon cases for sure, so have no worries.  All of you that have contacted us about these cases will be happy campers soon.

Keep Rocking and Turn It Up.

GREAT NEWS !!! ZVEX Effects boutique pedals on the way.

Hello from Blues City Music,

Great news today as we announce we are finalizing arrangements with Zack Vex and his boutique ZVEX Effects silk screened and custom hand painted pedals. 

We were a dealer many years ago when Zack started and really loved not only how cool they looked but how well they sounded, and now we are thoroughly excited to have his products on board again. 

Zack is NOT into replicating a particular iconic pedal, he builds his own unique tones for each pedal he sells, so no worries with that. 

As for specific tonal differences between the silk screened and hand painted pedals, fear not.  They are basically the very same pedal but the hand painted ones are serious works of art as well.  Here are a few cool designs.

Fabulous pedals at a very fair price.  Let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Blues City Music is now a Levy's Leathers Guitar Straps dealer

Hello from Memphis. 

Good news from Winter NAMM 2017.  BCM picked up another fine selection of Levy's Leather guitar straps.  So far we have a very wide selection, and looks like we will need to pick up some cool looking bass straps soon as well. 

No junk, these are the real deal.  Garment leather, suede leather, faux animal skin finishes, cloth, or woven styles and many with rubber strips on back so your guitar/bass won't slide.  Check out our website for the dedicated Levy's Straps page.  All straps shown are IN STOCK NOW. 

Thanks for stopping by and keep rocking LOUDLY.  TURN IT UP.

Blues City Music new store front sign

Hello from Memphis.

Welcome to 2017.  We hope things are already going great for you. 

So how do you like the new sign I'm having custom built for BCM as I write?  5" thick letters in dark blue with all enclosed LED lighting, then 18" tall letters in white with light blue edging so it can be read at up to 700+ feet from the store.  Frank Balton Signs is building this for me, and it should be done in under 3 weeks.  Now it will be simple to find BCM even when driving down busy Germantown Parkway.

Blues City Music's store front is alive and well.  All of our inventory is in the shop right now, plus I'm going to 2017 Winter NAMM in Los Angeles, California, in 2 weeks so who knows what product lines I may pick up.  I do have meetings with most of my manufacturers, but will also speak with a nice guy that hit me up about doing school band instrument rentals.  Great logistics and they ship straight from their distribution center so I don't have to stock any products.  I just cut the deal and viola' you are jamming in school band. 

Still looking for a new and unique boutique pedal board line.  Let me know if you have any good ideas, but I have no intentions of doing the ordinary and competing with big box stores.  It has to be unique.

Standby for more information coming your way and by all means get in on our Monday night jam nights when we have them scheduled.  9pm to 1 am.  Yeah, all you need is your guitar, bass, keyboard, or drum sticks.  We supply all the rest.

New Diamond Guitars and Hard Shell cases on the way !!!

For all of those that have been inquiring about when the next NEW shipment of 2016 Diamond Guitars and Hard Shell cases are coming, have no fear, November 2016 is the date.  Probably the later part of the month, but plan on killer new color schemes and as always an outstanding build quality.  I personally have 3 Diamond Gutiars (BIrd of Prey, Maverick, and Bolero), and 1 DBZ USA Custom Shop Royale/Imperial Jr. guitar in my own collection.  Seymour Duncan hand would pickups from Jeff Beck, 59', and Jeff Diamant's (Diamond CEO), own personal designed hand would Seymour pickups.  Grover tuners, graphite nut, fabulous finishes.  Tone for days. 

Give us a call or buy right off this site as well as our Pinterest,, and Face Book pages.
