Tim’s Music, which has providing musical instruments, instruction and repair services to Sacramento-area bands and individual musicians for nearly 40 years, has begun the process of moving to a new, significantly larger site in Carmichael.
The shop at 2812 Marconi Ave., Sacramento, began the extended move in mid-March. By mid-June, Tim’s expects to be completely moved into the new store at 6818 Fair Oaks Blvd. The business will move from about 5,000 square feet at its current site to a building with more than 13,500 square feet.
The new site includes 14 studios, a significantly larger instrument-repair facility, extensive display space and a fully equipped, 120-seat recital/rehearsal room.
