Our Approach

It Begins with the Music

Music has great power to enrich the spirit and give expression to what stirs in the soul. As musicians, every member of the crew at Acoustic Corner “gets it.” We know that every facet of our business – sales, rentals, repairs, support – is about serving those who serve the music. Whether your needs are an acoustic guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, or violin, we aim to be your go-to acoustic music shop not only in Black Mountain, but in the greater Asheville area.


Neither Box-Store, Nor Boutique

We are not a box-store focused on maximum sales with minimum customer interaction. Nor are we a boutique focused primarily on instruments the vast majority of people can’t afford.

We are an independent acoustic stringed instrument shop with a 20 year history of offering consistently high quality instruments and service to people, many of whom we know on a first-name basis. Establishing and nurturing relationships is as important as anything we do.


Finding the Right One for You

At Acoustic Corner, we focus on helping you find the right instrument for you, whether you are a beginner, novice, hobbyist or gigging musician. We provide the selection and the setting, the information and the environment that can help you make the “right” decision for you.

We believe that you should see, hold and play an instrument before buying it. So we encourage you to spend some time with us and with our instruments. Ask your questions. Pay attention to what you see, hear and feel. You may just find the right one…and the right one may just find you.
