What's in a name? 
Zamar rhymes with "guitar"
"Zamar" is a Hebrew praise word
which means
"to touch or pluck the strings
in spontaneous worship"

Dave Eickenroth, owner of Zamar Guitar, has created a very special music store with a focus on quality, affordable stringed instruments, accessories, and sound equipment. Dave is a well-known, highly respected professional musician, songwriter, and worship leader in the Traverse City area.

Known around northern Michigan for his integrity, honesty, and expert knowledge acquired from almost forty years of buying, selling, and playing guitars, Dave says, "It's only a win-win if it's a good deal for both of us."

A community of musicians

We are happy to be part of the Traverse City Area music scene. It's really hoppin' these days!

At Zamar Guitar, our foundation is a strong emphasis on building relationships with area musicians. We are a "player's store", where professional musicians, up-and-comers, and amateur players can mingle and have a great time jamming and talking guitars.

 And by the way ... we're not a guitar "museum" ~ so go ahead and put a finger print or two on our guitars! You wouldn't buy a car without test driving  it, would you?
