Osiamo LLC participated in the Brooklyn Fall Guitar at Brooklyn Bowl on September 22nd. It was a beautiful fall day in Brooklyn and an enthusiastic crowd of avid guitars came down to the event.

We once again shared space with Phil Jones Pure Sound and Xotic Guitars and Effects, we enjoyed the accolades from the consumers.

We debuted both the Dr J pedals line and Dexter the octaver by Taurus. Dr. J pedals offer the famous “Boutique” sound, construction and vibe, at a price any musician can afford. With seven pedals in the line, all designed to be musical tools, you can expand your creativity. The Dexter Octaver is first of a new series from Taurus designed for guitarists as well as bassists. Dexter is a -1/+1 octaver that tracks equally as well on guitar and bass.

Past and future Osiamo artists of the months John Bendy and Teddy Kumpel graced us with both their presence and fine demo’ing!

Thanks to all who passed by to say hello.

How long has the store been in business?
The retail store Murphy’s Music has been in business since 1969.

How long have you worked at the store?
Texas Guitar Ranch has been working with Murphy’s since 2011. I started buying and selling guitars in 1980.

Why are Mooer pedals doing so well at your store?
They are just great sounding pedals, and when people realize how great they sound and how little room they take up and the price point, they sell themselves. Our staff believes in them and recommends them to our customers.

How does the future of music stores look?
We think the future of music stores remains strong but stores have to keep on top of new technology and integrate it successfully to stay viable. And of course, we rely on support from manufacturers and distributors. Osiamo has consistently been a top notch supplier with superb products.

Biggest challenge for your store for 2013?
Finding great new products to offer our customers that keep them coming back to see what’s new. Good example… these Taurus stomp heads are amazing!

The Frankfurt Muzikmesse is always an exciting show and a great place to meet with our suppliers. This year was no exception as our musical partners unveiled many new and exciting products.

Many of our suppliers don’t exhibit at NAMM so Muzikmesse is a great opportunity for us to see new products and discuss new ideas. Richard Cocco, Taurus, and Mooer displayed this year at Muzikmess.

We are really looking forward to the next few months when these products arrive at our warehouse.

Taurus is celebrating 30 years of making guitar and bass gear this year. And to show us that they are not going to rest they are debuting several new pedals and amplifiers. You can see a short video of some of the new product from Taurus here.
