LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 23, 2011) - Hello Music, the fastest growing centralized marketplace and opportunity platform for musicians, today announced the debut of Hello Music Vintage -- a brand new sales channel to connect the very best vintage and used music gear to hundreds of thousands of musicians and collectors from coast to coast.

The most prolific provider of e-commerce opportunities for musicians, Hello Music first began revamping the music retail industry by democratizing access to top of the line instruments, home recording gear and other must-have musician-related services. With the addition of rare and one-of-a-kind vintage offerings through Hello Music Vintage, the site continues to redefine the e-commerce world not only for musicians, but for individual music retailers as well. Hello Music Vintage retail partners, such as the legendary Norman's Rare Guitars and Chelsea Guitars, now have the opportunity to flourish online and greatly expand their customer base to the over 110,000 -- and growing -- Hello Music members.

"Our goal is to improve the lives of musicians. With Hello Music Vintage, our members now have access to the finest vintage guitars, amps and more from some of the most highly regarded stores across the nation," said Rick Camino, CEO of Hello Music. "The launch of Hello Music Vintage further establishes Hello Music as the go-to place to connect musicians with previously out-of-reach opportunities, while simultaneously elevating business for our esteemed Vintage retail partners."

The debut of Hello Music Vintage will include:

Norman's Rare Guitars, Los Angeles, CA
"Partnering with Hello Music Vintage just makes sense for us -- and for music retailers around the country," said Norman Harris, owner of Norman's Rare Guitars. "For 37 years we've provided our loyal Los Angeles customer base with the most unique vintage guitars and gear. We're now able to bring these items directly to the large Hello Music community while strengthening our customer and fan base. It's something that is mutually beneficial and we're honored to be a part of the Hello Music family."

Chelsea Guitars, New York, NY
"By joining forces with Hello Music Vintage, we are not only increasing our sales potential through this new musician community, but now Hello Music's 110,000 members will know about Chelsea Guitars in New York City," said Dan Courtenay, owner and founder of Chelsea Guitars. "It's expanding our visibility and bringing a New York City institution to musicians and guitar collectors around the country."

Moving forward, new vintage retail partners from around the US will debut bi-weekly on Hello Music Vintage, showcasing a handpicked selection of approximately eight rare and unique items.
