Hello Friends!

First and foremost we hope you are all doing well and continuing to STAY PUT! Your safety is most important to us, so we ask you to please NOT show up at the shop (with exceptions detailed below). In accordance with state/national guidelines, we are remaining closed to the public and often answer phones remotely. We are doing our best to fulfill what orders we can through the following platforms:

The BEST WAY to communicate with us is via the PHONE, 12pm - 5pm, EST, Monday through Friday. Our number is 301-595-4190. If you see an item you’d like to discuss or have any questions regarding pricing, shipping, etc. — give us a call!

Please note that if you reach out to us via Reverb or eBay, we’ll need you to continue to communicate via that platform, as that is how we will complete those transactions. We will happily ship LOCALLY as well as anywhere within the contiguous US of A.

Now on to the update: ATOMIC MUSIC will be carefully buying gear again! This will be done on a limited and by-appointment-only basis. We are currently buying anything that can be shipped easily: guitars, basses, some keyboards, effect pedals, small amps, and the like. Cashflow at this point is greatly reduced and we can only buy a limited amount of gear. We need you to call in advance to determine whether or not we’ll be able to purchase your items. If it turns out that we cannot purchase your items at this time (perhaps due to multiples of like gear or items too large to ship), please understand that once we open back up we will go back to more aggressive buying!

The process to sell us gear is as follows:

  1. Call the store to discuss what you have. If we can use your gear, we may ask you to email pictures — again, please CALL FIRST!
  2. Once we agree on pricing, we will draw up the necessary paperwork prior to your arrival.
  3. We’ll need you to bring the agreed-upon gear ONLY (no surprises, please) to the Sonidos entrance — this is where we will exchange gear/paperwork/etc.
  4. Please be sure you are wearing a mask and have a pen with you to sign the paperwork.
  5. We hand you check, you place gear on curb — badda bing / badda boom!
  6. Buybacks: If you have your original receipt, we are accepting buybacks on an as-needed basis. It is important to have your receipt as we are rarely at the store by a computer.

No one enters the store and everyone stays safe! We will give this method a shot and see how it goes…

Thanks for your understanding and support! These are definitely unusual times and hopefully soon we’ll get back to some semblance of “normalcy”. In the meantime, please stay safe and follow the CDC’s guidelines to protect yourself and the ones you love! We truly miss all of you and hope you’re staying creative & making music at home!
