St. Louis Music
Mark Ragin, CEO of U.S. Band and St. Louis Music, said St. Louis Music has secured full-line distributor status for accessories and strings from C.F. Martin.
This arrangement makes St. Louis Music one of only five Martin full-line distributors in the United States. It includes the complete Martin string catalog for guitars and other fretted instruments, plus Martin-branded accessories and the Martin Backpacker travel guitar.
St. Louis Music originally distributed Martin’s accessories in 1971. The two entities broke for a short time during the period that Loud Technologies owned St. Louis Music.
“We’re pleased to renew our partnership with St. Louis Music for the distribution of our strings and accessories,” said Tim McNair, Martin’s director of sales and marketing, string division. “It is a dynamic company with an experienced sales team who really know our products, which will enable them to serve their retailers very well.”
