Through good old Face Book I ran into an old guitar playing buddy of mine who now runs a music store called Selinger’s Music in Listowel (pronounced Lis-Twoll) Ontario. I’ve never been there before but if my buddy Al is the same kind of stand up guy he was when we were kidz then his store must truly rock.
Looking at a few pic’s from Selinger’s Music site, I spy some nice vintage axes hanging around the shop. He has a nice collection of Taylor acoustic guitars in all sizes. He also looks like he has a decent selection of amps and pedals as well. And speaking of pedals, the other part of the store he has that I like is his tech department that is dedicated to rebuilding vintage guitar pedals. It’s nice to see all those old school pedal(s) are there, still alive and kicking around!
If you check out this link you’ll see a picture of a very old pedal called the Silencer by Electro Harmonix that they are working on. I use to own one when I first started playing electric guitar and it brought back some painful memories. For the life of me I can’t remember what this pedal sounded like but I thought it looked real cool.
There’s an area in Selinger’s that highlights their drum section, which appears to be quite big. I’m not a drummer but what they had I was impressed with.
Last but not least you have to see this sign they have offering lessons to anyone purchasing any instrument, best ad I’ve seen in years.
Keep on Jammin’ Selinger Music in Listowel!
