noted that the pandemic has had the benefit of creating new musicians who sought at-home joy to get them through the quarantine. “This is one of the biggest demands for gear since the Beatles were on [‘The Ed Sullivan [Show’],” he said. “We’re an at-home activity, so the pandemic opened us up to a lot of new players. Our job is to shepherd them and make sure they stick with it, because new players are the lifeblood of the industry.” Hansen concluded, “Music is a good, fun hobby. We help people create fun. The more people we can inspire to try it helps the industry grow.” MUSIC & SOUND RETAILER
