WELCOME TO KATOOMBA MUSIC

Based in the Blue Mountains just outside Sydney, Katoomba Music’s bricks and mortar business has been established for over a decade

Based in the Blue Mountains just outside Sydney, Katoomba Music’s bricks and mortar business has been established for over a decade, and we enjoy negotiating price on the best guitars, amps, keyboards, basses, effects, percussion and other music gear in Australia. Our online shop will return soon to reflect what we have in the store – and when you see a product on our site, we usually have it hanging in the shop, waiting for you to test, or ready to send out straight away. We also have a huge range of other stuff in our physical shop as well, and prices are identical in the flesh or online, so if you prefer to do things the old-fashioned way, come in and say g’day or give us a call on 02 4782 1121 with any questions.

ACOUSTICS

ACOUSTICS

The most popular acoustic instrument at Katoomba Music is the acoustic guitar. The main source of sound in an acoustic guitar is the stringa, which are plucked or strummed with the finger or with a pick. The vibration of the strings is transmitted to the air—as opposed to relying on electronic amplification. The sound waves from the strings of an acoustic guitar resonate through the guitar’s body, creating sound. This typically involves the use of a sound board and a sound box to strengthen the vibrations of the strings.

ELECTRICS

ELECTRICS

When thinking about purchasing an electrical instrument we first think of an electric guitar. An electric guitar is a fretted stringed instrument with a neck and body that uses a pickup to convert the vibration of its strings—which are typically made of steel—into electrical signals. The most common type of pickup is the magnetic pickup, which uses the principle of direct electromagnetic induction. The signal generated by an electric guitar is too weak to drive a loudspeaker, so it is plugged into a guitar amp.

DRUMS AND PERCUSSION

DRUMS AND PERCUSSION

The percussion family includes the oldest musical instruments, following the human voice. This section of an orchestra most commonly contains instruments such as timpani, snare drum, bass drum, cymbals, triangles and tambourines. The drum is a member of the percussion group of musical instruments. Drums consist of at least one membrane, called a drumhead or drum skin, that is stretched over a shell and struck. At Katoomba Music we usually have at least one analog kit and one electric in the store at any one time.
