Please note that on Thursday, June 21st, between 11:30am - 2pm, the Wyandotte County Sheriff’s Deputies funeral procession will be driving in front of the K.C. Strings Merriam location. In honor of the deputies, we plan to pay our respect.

We also would like to inform our clients that it might be a bit difficult to access our shop during the procession.

The City of Merriam has invited those wanting to pay their respect to park at the Merriam Marketplace, the Irene B. French Community Center, or Waterfall Park prior to the procession.

Look what we have for you on this beautiful, hot and sunny day in Kansas!... a NEW blog!

"There are some important factors to take into account when purchasing a pick up. You will need to consider how often you’ll need to be amped, how nuanced of a sound you will require, if you are okay with the pickup being permanently fixed, and if you will also want to play acoustically while the pickup is still attached. These being taken into consideration, here is a good list of pickup types and descriptions that might make it a little easier for you to think about what would be the best for you."
