The Gryphon Advantage

posted Jul 07, 2014
One of the things that makes Gryphon special is something, or someplace, most people never see: our repair department. Before we put an instrument out for sale, we set it up for optimum playability. We guarantee that you will have an instrument that will play correctly. If we can't adjust it, we will not sell it. Our six full time technicians stand behind that guarantee. They can also repair and modify your instrument in the future. If you purchased it here, you will get a 25% discount on labor.

Lock-It Straps Make it Easier to Relax

posted Sep 24, 2013

Using a patented design, these Lock-It straps eliminate the hassle of using metal strap locks to keep your instrument securely connected to your strap, and to you. You don't have to put special strap buttons on your instruments, and you can switch to a conventional strap whenever you want. Lock-It straps are made in the USA, and are currently available from the Gryphon Mercantile.
