Our Story

A Brief History of Time
How did Faders Music come into being?

  • 1984 - A young boy hears Van Halen's "Jump" for the first time & he decides he wants to play guitar.

  • 1985 - He starts guitar lessons on a classical guitar. Continues for 4 years but doesn't really like his lessons.

  • 1990 - The young guitarist gets his first electric guitar for Christmas. That's exactly what he needed.

  • 1997 - He moves out west & apprentices at a recording studio while working in sales at an independent music store. 

  • 2001 to 2006 - After 5 years of managing a local music store in Brandon, it becomes clear that he must strike out on his own.

  • April 2007 - Faders Music opens - a retail music store with music lessons & in-house project recording studio. 

  • 2010 - More space is needed for music lessons & the instrument showroom so the recording studio is removed to create that space. 

  • 2011 -  Faders adds a fully enclosed "rustic cabin" inspired, humidity controlled acoustic room & create our first e-commerce website.

  • 2014 - Faders backs ToneWoodAmp on Kickstarter and a successful ongoing business relationship begins.

  • 2015 - Faders starts carrying new & used vinyl records & turntables. It has since become a major draw for the store. 

  • 2019 - Faders does a major store renovation & adds several major product lines to the store including Ibanez & Fender. Brand new music lesson studios are a major part of the renovation.

  • 2020 & beyond - We have many many exciting things planned for the future. ;)
