St. Louis Music is a division of U.S. Band & Orchestra Supplies Inc.

We supply all types of music stores from band and orchestra specialists, guitar stores, drum stores, school music dealers, and of course general music stores too.

Our company is the corporate owner of Knilling String Instruments, Austin Guitars, Perfection Planetary Pegs, Zonda Reeds, Cargo bags & cases, and SLM music accessories, as well as being the exclusive distributor in the U.S..A. of Alvarez and Alvarez-Yairi guitars, Francois Louis ligatures and mouthpieces, the Nuvo Clarinéo, and Superial Reeds.

St. Louis Music (SLM) also distributes over 10,000 products from over 150 leading brands and manufacturers in the music products industry including Audio Technica, C.F. Martin, D’Addario, Dunlop, Korg, Manhasset, Paiste, Rico, Remo, Selmer, Vandoren, Vic Firth, Yamaha, and so many more.

Our objective is to work closely with the music retailers we supply, in order to benefit both of our businesses and the music industry as a whole, as well as support music making throughout the world.

At SLM we go the extra mile in customer service with a host of dealer support programs to help with sales and marketing. We offer drop shipping services, private label manufacturing, and extended terms through GE Capital. We can also provide dealers with their own 140 page, full color accessory catalog, branded with the dealer’s name on it (not ours), so the dealer can mail it to your school band customers, churches, marching bands and colleges, or give out in the store. This is our RCP Program and retailers can learn more in our private Dealer Center.

If you are a music store retailer and would like more information on our company and our products, and how we can grow your business, please contact us for our latest trade catalogs, or to arrange a visit from your local sales representative. We’ll both be glad you did.

Thank you for visiting.
