John Pundt owner of Orcoast Music and his partner
Genevieve Vines, know that there is more to owning a music store than
just carrying a wide selection of musical instruments and related
equipment. The couple understands that it’s about the vibe of the
place, extensive knowledge on products, the service they provide their
customers, along with the special attention that is paid to their very
valued customers. John and Genevieve have decades of experience and it
definitely shows when talking with them or any one of their very
knowledgeable employees. All of them are musicians themselves and you
can be assured that they know what they are talking about.
Not only does Orcoast Music serve the Oregon Coast but they have
customers that come from all over the Northwest and beyond. When
someone makes a purchase from Orcoast, they setup and insure the
playability of your instrument. After you have made your purchase, the
service provided doesn’t stop there. The close knit crew are more than
happy to assist you to ensure that you are happy with the product.
Orcoast Music also provides an array of lessons to the public. Guitar
and Bass lessons with Horst Hartung and Violin or Viola lessons by
Kirstin Meyer. Drum and percussion lesson are taught by Tom Beckstrom.
Other lessons are being considered as well, including Piano and Voice.
They have recently constructed a full recording studio
next door to their main store! I saw it for myself and I must say that
I was beyond impressed. It’s a beautiful space with a wonderful
old school vibe. Do you need help recording the album or demo you have
been dying to make? Orcoast can help you with that, with a focus on
singer, songwriter, individuals, and groups.
Orcoast Music is one of the few music stores in the
Northwest to carry LAG Guitars. They carry top quality microphones and
amps for a variety of instruments including acoustic guitar, archtop
guitar, resonator guitar, upright bass, banjo, and mandolin. They
are a dealer for Fender, Peavey Pro Audio, Jackson, Lag Guitars,
Guild Guitars, Roland and Boss, Kala, and much more. They even have an
easily navigated website where you can check out their products and
even order from their online store!
