Root Note Music

Root Note Music was established in the Spring of 2010 in the infamous upstate New York music town, New Paltz.  Over the past 3+ years, our little business has been enjoying much success, locally as well as nationally via the world wide web, which has afforded us the ability to increase the amount and quality of inventory.  With your support, we can continue to offer great instruments and gear that are hand selected and well suited for all types of musicians–professionals, collectors, weekend warriors, and those who are just starting their musical explorations alike.
