New logo, and some new directions!

Well, not exactly NEW directions - but we've posted a "Car's eye view"youtube video dRiving to YAMS from the Zebulon ROad area.

We've had a few people who "didn't know there was a music store there" or weren't quite sure how to get to the store - so here's how!

This was recorded in the Summer of 2011.

6 months SAME AS CASH at YAMS!

Young America Music School now offers 6 months same-as-cash on major purchases at the store. We can get you setup very quickly online - and this offer is good for the life of your "deferred financing" account - i.e. this is NOT a "limited time offer"!

This special financing offer basically means you get the product NOW, and have 6 months to pay off the balance INTEREST-FREE!

[The catch? If you don't pay it off within the 6 months, you'll be charged interest from day 1. We strongly encourage you to get it paid off!]

There is no minimum purchase to get this deal. The maximum amount available will be determined by your credit rating - and we can get this done quickly at the store right then!

For VERY large purchases you could even get TWELVE months same-as-cash - check with Emmett at the store for details.

You know that Deering Banjo or that Weber Mandolin or the Roland keyboard you've been eyeing? Christmas IS coming quickly!

Basses Galore......
