Step Up

To your amazing new instrument.

What is a “step-up”?

Like cars, computers, or sports gear, instruments have different levels of quality. Beginners start on “student models,” designed for durability and easy of playing. As players advance and grow (physically and musically), they will outgrow their instrument- much like a bicyclist will outgrow their training wheels.

For students that wish to play their best, the next level of instruments, called step-up instruments, offer refined sound and intonation, allowing advancing players to continue beyond the limitations of a student-line instrument.
