Music Equipment Fast and Easy
Magix might be the place to find everything you need related to software, but, without good solid music equipment to go with it, creative artists might as well be throwing their money down the drain when they buy some. Thankfully, companies like zZounds Music exist to fill the gap. With over 600,000 “Fanatically Happy Customers,” zZounds boasts that their main source of publicity comes from mouth-to-mouth reccomendations.
From their homepage, it’s pretty easy to see where their success comes from. Visitors to zZounds.com are invited to browse through their offerings by type of item or brand. Since brand names are more important to some than for others, this feature makes it easy for would-be customers to find exactly what they want. The search feature does its job, and the website layout in general, while not in the least flashy, is practical. zZounds doesn’t rely on gimmickry because it doesn’t have to; they offer what customers need in an easy-to-understand manner.
People looking to buy music equipment online can easily find other websites (like interstatemusic.com) to buy what they are looking for, but zZounds has the vast majority of them beat with their clean layout and sales that are easy to find, but not invasive. Once customers place an order, they can expect to receive their equipment within one to four business days. Unfortunately, however, musicians that live outside of the United States or associated territories (e.g. US Military addresses and the Republic of Palau) will not be able to take advantage of their services.
