What Is Nick Rail Music?

Nick Rail Music, established in Santa Barbara, California in 1986, is first and foremost a band and orchestral dealer, catering to both the school market and the private or professional musician. Our second store, Nick Rail Music/Agoura Hills opened in 1998, followed by stores in Santa Clarita, Redlands, San Diego and Bakersfield. We are the largest Yamaha band instrument dealer in the state, with franchises for virtually all other major name brands. Our percussion department covers concert, marching and drum set; we also carry acoustic guitars, electric guitars and basses, portable keyboards, sound reinforcement, and related products. Our stores offer accessories for all departments; our sheet music department specializes in instrument methods and jazz. Our 5 repair shops expertly service thousands of instruments annually for school districts, individual customers and professional players alike. Nick Rail Music provides service as needed to school music programs throughout southern California; representatives visit band directors and band students weekly in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, Kern, San Bernardino, Riverside and San Diego counties. David ‘Lucky’ Harms, our National School Sales Manager, has helped us expand the scope of our school sales effort to include the entire state of California as well as 34 other states. Our rental program with purchase option is geared toward the beginning student at the elementary or junior high school level. Our rental base is well over three thousand instruments at any given time. We rent new or used major name-brand instruments, and all rent may apply to purchase. All Nick Rail Music stores feature teaching studios where over 1000 students are instructed on a weekly basis by many of the finest brass, woodwind and string teachers in southern California.
