Bob Green founded BBB Music Center in 2005 after he tried to buy a banjo and couldn't find one locally. He had always wanted to play banjo, but no one had one for him to try. So he bought his first instrument off the internet, but decided to start a store where folks could try out an instrument before buying it.
One year later, disaster struck when a downtown Chillicothe fire destroyed several buildings on East Second Street in Chillicothe. The original Bob's Banjo Barn and all of the musical instruments and other stock were lost. He reopened down the street that same year and later relocated to his current location on Water Street.
At BBB Music Center you can try out an instrument and then take lessons in Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Electric Bass Guitar, Upright Bass, Saxophone, Flute, Drums, Piano/keyboard, Dobro, Mandolin, Fiddle/Violin, and Banjo. You can find strings and parts for most instruments.
The store sells a full line of guitars and other stringed instruments, plus band instruments, amplifiers, and other supplies. We buy, sell, and trade - plus offer instrument rental at competitive prices.
The store is also the Box Office for the Majestic Theatre and other venues. Stop by for tickets and browse all the instruments for sale.
