Always current, and always stocked with great new gear, it is easy to spend a while in Hansen Music- taking it all in.

Actually, it is more than just a music store. Hansen Music offers equipment service, lessons, rentals and gadgets. They have a huge amount of instruments from drum kits and band instruments to the enormous selection of stringed instruments.

They started back in the 40’s, and grew into the largest music store in Billings through the guidance of the late Pat Hansen, who was legendary in his generosity and support of local musicians.

I love that everyone in the store is involved in the music industry somehow. So knowledgeable and helpful! Some are professional musicians or play locally, and some are fabulous technicians.

My new favorite gadget is the Snark-the super easy-to-use tuner that clips on the headstock of your guitar. Tuning can’t get much easier. It has a bright display, which makes in it great when you need to tune up in a darker venue… or for me, a dimly lit basement. It starts around $20.00, and it makes listening to all my mistakes sound so much better.

Hansen Music provides musical instruments for every need in the musical community including school bands, facility outfitting, regional performers, local artists and basement enthusiasts and equipment service is unmatched. Whether you are a professional, or professional in your basement, go check out Hansen Music. As they say… “Play it Live!”
