Dudebroski.com - Official Website Launch
Happy one year anniversary Dudebroski! What a long strange trip it’s been since April 2015, and humbling. Building a small independent business amongst a sea of industry giants is no easy task. While Dudebroski remains independently owned and operated, that wouldn’t be possible without your support on those other websites like Reverb & eBay. So from me to you, a huge THANK YOU! It means everything and I hope to continue to earn your business.
To this end, I am excited to announce the launch of Dudebroski.com! This is the official home of all things Dudebroski guitars and I personally invite you to browse, provide me feedback and share. There's some really cool features to check out, like the “Meet The Builders” and “Screamin’ Deals” pages. Used and refurbished instruments are a core part of Dudebroski, so inventory is fluid. Be sure to get on the email list or give a thumbs up on Facebook to be the first to know about new product arrivals and price drops. Below is a quick overview of products you can expect to find on Dudebroski.com:
Manufacturer refurbished, factory second, discontinued models and slightly blemished electric, acoustic and bass guitars from top names like: Fender, Epiphone, Gretsch, Guild, Alvarez, Ibanez, Warwick and others as they become available. If you’re not familiar with refurb guitars, I invite you to learn more by clicking here. Our guitars come from the nation’s largest wholesaler with over 20 years of service to the music industry. Hands down, these are the best bang for your hard earned guitar dollar and great workhorse instruments. If you see one you like, snag it. These guitars are priced to move and always limited in quantity. When they’re gone, that’s it.
Dudebroski is an Authorized Dealer for Reverend Guitars! Speaking of workhorse guitars & basses, in 1997 Reverend started building guitars in a garage behind a bicycle shop in East Detroit. The rest is history still in the making. Joe Naylor (visionary Reverend Guitar designer, weird kid) drew upon his years of study in Industrial Design, Lutherie School, and professional vintage guitar repair to create the first Reverend Guitar. Interestingly, a lot of people say Reverend Guitars don’t really look, feel, play or sound like anything else out there. Once you play a Reverend, you'll see why they're compared to other guitars that cost several times more. My inventory will continue to evolve with Reverend Guitars and I'm stoked to be onboard. Don't forget, factory direct special orders are always welcome.
Boutique guitar pedals are providing more sonic options than ever before. There are some seriously talented indie manufacturers out there building high quality tone machines. However, there seems to be a glut of pedals on the market and navigating through the madness can turn into a part-time job. Let's keep it simple, but diversified. I'm on a quest to narrow it down to the tried and true products in both quality & price point.So far, Dudebroski is an Authorized Dealer for a small but growing selection of Cusack, Greer Amps, Dwarfcraft Devices, Yellowcake, Accel & CMAT Mod pedals. In addition, I'm always on the hunt for used boutique guitar pedals by Keeley, JHS, Wampler, Catalinbread, Earthquaker Devices, Fulltone, J. Rockett and select others. You never know what you’re gonna find, that's the beauty. All these listings are accompanied by video product demos so you can hear what the pedal sounds like before you buy.
Got pedal power? Get powered up with Accel Audio power supplies. If you’re not familiar with Accel Audio, they make some very solid gear at an affordable price point. We carry a full line of all Accel products that include effect pedals, switchers/loopers, cables and pedalboards to name a few.
So you got some sweet boutique pedals and you're powered up, eh? Whatcha gonna put them on? Dudebroski got your back. Creation pedalboards are custom handmade in the USA, built to last and functional with sexy hardwoods or wraps to choose from. Next time you set your Creation board on the stage or living room, people will take notice. I’ve been told it’s a “grown-up” looking pedal board, I think that sums it up nicely. Custom orders and stock items are always available.
Need strings, straps, tuners, cases or cables to go with that? How about a full line of DR & Rotosound strings, Ace & Henry Heller guitar straps, George L’s and other cables for plugging in your guitar or wiring your pedalboard. Coming soon, Bullet old-school Coil Cables and Slug DIY Cable Kits, good stuff.
Bottom line, Dudebroski wants to be your local shop, even on the web. Dudebroski is indie retail driven by a real DIY ethos. Proudly owned and operated by yours truly, David Slivinski. Yep, right now this is a one man show, grassroots at its core and small biz at its finest. What does this mean for you? How about expedient response times, open communication, personalized service, attention to detail, quick economical shipping and let's top that off with some real world experience as a performing musician. As a lifelong musician, I've played just about every type of venue imaginable (just like you) over the years. Everything from corporate venues, festivals & weddings, to living out of a van travelling from one dive to the next. I understand quality gear for the working musician. I even did time working in guitar sales at one of those "big box" retailers. All paths have led to this, and it feels right.
Dudebroski doesn’t exist without you. I know you have many choices when you decide to make a purchase. That's why I'm more motivated than ever to exceed your expectations, one sale at a time. But don't just take my word for it:
"Great service! Extremely honest and responsive seller. Got an amazing guitar at an incredible price! I couldn't be happier with the transaction." - Luke bought a refurb Guild D140CE
"Great seller, bottom line... price, shipping, payment options... all around great transaction. So happy with my new pedal, thanks!" - Phillip bought a Cusack Screamer Fuzz
"A great transaction. Seller has great / quick communication with me. Shipping very quickly. Item came well packed, and as advertised. Very satisfied." - Stephen bought a used Gibson Flying V
"Dobro is as beautiful as shown. All facts about instrument are true and as represented. Dobro was very carefully and professionally packed. I received the Dobro very quickly and couldn't be happier. I would definitely do business with DudeBroSki Guitars again!" - Pamela bought a refurb Dobro Houndog DLX
"Extremely fast shipping. Item was well packed. Price was great. Would definitely purchase from seller again." - David bought a used Mantra Overdrive by Blackout Effectors
"Amazing guitar, flawless transaction, awesome seller." - Michael bought a Reverend Manta Ray
"Awesome pedal and seller! Thanks!" - Javery bought an ARF by Dwarfcraft
"I checked your website and not only do you have a hell of great selection of very reasonably priced guitars, but I think it may also be the best name I have ever heard for a guitar store. It looks like you hold a much higher standard to the term "refurbished" which I really appreciate. I will definitely put in a good word for you and your store to all my friends shopping for a new instrument. Thanks again for your time and help." - Brian declined my offer on a guitar, but that's ok.
Cheers for making my 1st year in biz a success, here’s to many more!
