Orange Amps and Electric Guitars
Mason Music is proud to be the only dealer of Orange Amps in the Birmingham, AL, area. We have started stocking our lesson rooms with the Orange Crush 20L practice amps and will also have them for sale at $129. These are great-sounding practice amps with three band eq, clean and overdrive channels, auxiliary inputs, headphone outputs and, of course, that signature orange look. The Orange Amp brand is a classic that’s been around since the 60’s. We have access to ordering higher end amps as well, and plan on stocking them in the future, so if you are looking for anything in the Rockerverb, Terror, or AD series, please let us know and we can get it!
Casio Privia Digital Pianos
For any one looking to start piano lessons, the Casio Privia is the perfect digital piano to take home. We teach many of our lessons on these digital pianos and love their weighted hammer feel, realistic sounds, portability, small size and features. Especially for the young student, the built-in speakers allow for the player to hear themselves without having the added expense of purchasing a separate amplifier. Two headphone jacks allow for multiple people to listen to what is being played, bypassing the speakers and allowing for quiet practice time. Put one of these in your child’s room and never worry about them remembering to practice again! These digital pianos can be purchased with an X brace stand for the ultimate portability, or with a digital piano stand to create a more ‘upright piano’ feel with three pedals at your feet and a more permanent look.
Planet Waves Cables
These are the best cables on the market while also being reasonably priced. Planet Waves has done a great job of developing a cable with very low capacitance, which basically means that the lower the capacitance, the better the quality of the signal flow and the better your instrument sounds when it’s plugged in. If you want to geek out and read more, click here for the full explanation from Planet Waves. These cables also come with a lifetime warranty – you can’t beat that. We stock 1/4″ instrument and microphone cables in several lengths.

D’Addario Electric Guitar Strings
Welcome to the future of electric guitar strings. The new NYXL (the name is inspired by the New York factory that makes the strings in-house) boasts longer life, better tone and they stay in tune better than other strings. These new D’Addario NYXL strings truly deliver on these promises, and guitar players everywhere are going crazy. We are currently stocking the 9’s, 10’s, and 11’s. Pick up a set and let us know what you think! For all you science buffs out there, check out the charts below for stats on how the NYXL’s outperform other strings. We also carry the regular XL line of D’Addario strings.
D’Addario Acoustic Guitar Strings
D’Addario Phosphor Bronze strings are an industry standard. All of our Alvarez acoustic guitars come standard with D’addario EJ16 acoustic phosphor bronze strings. These strings are precisely wound with corrosion resistant phosphor bronze to give you a long string life with their warm, bright, balanced tone.
D’Addario Classic Nylon Guitar Strings
This D’Addario product is the standard for classical strings. Made especially for the classical guitar user, the Classic Nylon string creates a balance of warmth, brightness and projection while featuring a smooth surface that makes it extra comfortable for players.
Elixir Acoustic Guitar Strings
If you’re like our owner, Will Mason, you want your guitar strings to last as long as possible. If you are ready to invest in a guitar string that will last 3 to 5 times longer than an uncoated string, Elixir is the brand for you. With either polyweb or nanoweb coating that increases string life, these strings really last. Try a set of these coated Elixir strings if you are looking for extended string life.
D’Addario Ukulele Strings
Complete with a ultra-smooth surface, this clear nylon string provides a brightness in tone along with finger comfort for its player.
Not sure how to change your strings? No problem. For $10 (plus the cost of your strings), we will do it for you! Just drop your guitar off and we will have it ready for you to pick up within 48 hours.
