About The Strum Shopstoreshot

The Strum Shop is an acoustic shop located in Roseville, California which specializes in ukuleles, acoustic guitars, banjos and mandolins.  They also carry a variety of other curious instruments that you should visit the store to see for yourself.

The Strum Shop was opened by Stu Herreid and Dan Elliott in May of 2012 when they saw a need for someone to support the rapidly growing community of ukulele players in the greater sacramento area.  The club Uke University, founded by Stu in 2010 had grown to well over 300 members in just two years and now boasts over 400 members.  The bluegrass folks have also found a home here at The Strum Shop.  Members of the Sacramento chapter of the California Bluegrass Association get together on the fourth thursday of each month for a jam.  Acoustic music of all styles really seems to have become the escape of choice in our heavily digitally saturated society.  Here at The Strum Shop, we are more than happy to oblige.

Ukulele brands we carry include Kanile’a, KoAloha, Pono, Kala, Kamoa, Nalu,  aNueNue, Fender, Riptide, Gretsch, and much more.  Our guitar wall features Guild, Takamine, Kremona, Fender, Gretsch and several others. We carry classical, acoustic, and resonator guitars as well as 5-String and Tenor Banjo’s, and mandolins.

We also teach what we sell. Click Here for a list of our very fine Teachers
So, please stop by and say hello.  And when you come in, feel free to grab a guitar or ukulele (or zither) off the wall.  We are a hands-on-shop.and encourage you to play your music…
