Arthur’s Music Store has been at the same location in Fountain Square since 1952 and is still owned and operated by the Arthur family. Although a lot has changed in the last 60 years, the level of personal service that Mr. Arthur instilled in his family and employees is continuing to provide a high degree of customer satisfaction today.

1957

While mainly a fretted instrument store (stocking everything musical except pianos, organs and recording gear), Arthur’s Music is known for having a wide variety of products from electric guitars to hammered dulcimers. We are one of the few stores in the Midwest where you can find pedal steels, accordions and Irish tenor banjos alongside guitars, basses, drums, amps and PA systems.

We buy, sell, trade, and offer vintage consignment, appraisals and instrument brokering. Our used and vintage stock moves quickly, so just ask and we will keep your requests on file and let you know when something that fits your needs becomes available.

Among the many other services available, we offer on-site luthiery & repair, parts and accessories for do-it-yourself repairs and customization on most electric and acoustic fretted instruments. 

Our staff of instructors offer private music lessons in the store for almost all instruments as well as voice and theory.​​ 

 

We LOVE Fountain Square! Arthur’s Music Store plays host to dozens of local events, festivals and concerts every year including 3rd Fridays On The Plaza, an outdoor summer concert series held on the 3rd Fridays of the month from April through October on the Fountain Square Plaza. Check out our website for what’s coming up next!

For two years in a row, Arthur’s Music Store has been named one of the Top 100 Dealers in the country by the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM).

“The music retailers honored with NAMM’s Top 100 Dealer status are those working hard to create positive musical experiences for everyone from those just learning to experienced musicians,” said Joe Lamond, president and CEO of NAMM. “Arthur’s Music Store is an important ambassador for making music in Indianapolis and exemplifies the passion for making music that unites us all.”

Arthur’s Music Store won the Top Dealer award in the category “Music Makes A Difference” at the 2015 Summer NAMM Show. This is an honor given to only 7 NAMM dealers per year from music stores all over the world!

The continuing history of Arthur’s Music Store has been written up in Music Trades Magazine, Music Inc. Magazine, Guitar Player Magazine, Indianapolis Monthly Magazine and The Indianapolis Star.
