We are proud to announce the opening of the Saint Louis region’s newest orchestral retail store, Low Key Music, which is owned by (Union member) Jesse and Ken Frederickson. Low Key Music is located at 6235 North Lindbergh, in Hazelwood, Missouri. Our store is 10,000 square feet and boasts a sales floor of over 2,000 square feet where you will be able to find any accessories that you may need for your instruments. The store will rent instruments to school band and orchestra parents, as well as have a program to make very expensive and rare instruments available to rent for our local musicians as well. We will offer Alto Flute, English Horn, Bassoon, Baritone sax, Bass sax, Soprano sax, Eb Clarinet, EEb Contra-alto clarinet, BBb contrabass clarinet, Piccolo trumpet, C trumpet, Flugelhorn, Bass trombone, 4-valve euphonium, a full-size BBb tuba and an upright Bass.
These rentals will be for a one-month basis at a time and will allow some of our local musicians a chance to play a broader range of instruments for gigs with this new availability option now offered. Low Key Music will take reservations for these instruments over the phone or in person.
Low Key Music will also have a full, state of the art instrument repair department and staff to service all wind and orchestral stringed instruments as well. The repair technicians are Jesse Frederickson, J.D. Tolman (Union member) and Jess Pherson. Once we open, stop by, check out our repair department, and see our 135 gallon (largest commercially manufactured size) ultrasonic machine that is big enough to chemically flush a full-size tuba with ease. We also have a magnehelic machine for vacuum testing woodwind instruments for air leaks. We even have a skylight in the repair shop to allow for natural light to match wood stain on our strings and wood instrument bodies.
The store is set to have its grand opening this April. If you have any questions, you can call us at (314) 764-2222.
