The Pulse of the Musical Instrument Industry
Introduction
The Music & Sound Retailer is the pulse of the musical instrument industry, with the most subscribers among music trade publications. We are the magazine that breaks the news stories first, and we provide the news in an easy-to-read format.

In 2012, The Retailer is in its 29th year and still going strong. We’re the only magazine with MI Spy, the most talked about feature in the industry.

On top of that, we’re the only magazine with a video newsletter, the very popular and highly regarded Vnewsletter. Broadcasting twice a month, it provides all the latest news and is hosted by New York City TV newswoman Jill Nicolini. We have produced well over 100 broadcasts and counting.
