First and foremost we want to say that we’re not here to get rich.
We’re here because we’re into music, playing, fixing things, making friends, and helping people find what they are looking for.
And if someone doesn’t know what they need or want – we’ll help them figure it out.
We opened in November of 1996 and have been growing our inventory and our customer base ever since. You’ll notice a difference between us and big box retailers when you walk in, there’s a community feeling and it’s easy to become a regular. We will learn your musical preferences, get to know you, and fine-tune our service to you.
We carry a diverse range of musical equipment that caters to pros and beginners alike. But we are very careful with what we carry – no junk allowed! Even our used equipment is carefully vetted, serviced, and priced to offer you maximum value. We are not worried about our various competitors because we focus on competively priced, high quality musical equipment offered with superior service.
You should come in and see us – get to know the Bigfoot difference.
A bit about the Bigfeet in the Back.
Co-owner of Bigfoot Music. Deric has been around since the beginning, building the store from the ground up with personal guitar and amp collections. Deric is the guy you want to talk to if you’ve got any tube amp or effects pedal questions, as he’s hand built dozens of pedals and tube amplifiers and is certified by multiple manufacturers for warranty repairs, including amps and guitars/basses.
The other co-owner of Bigfoot Music. Ryan has been here since just after the beginning as the first official employee of Bigfoot Music and is our main guitar technician. A perfectionist by nature, he makes sure every guitar that leaves our doors plays as great as they look. Ryan is also the guy to ask about software, PA and recording issues.
Purveyor of all things groovy and colorful, Colton’s a natural born guitar player and has a great ear to get you the instrument you’re looking for. He’s got a huge amount of experience with DAW’s, recording techniques and can answer questions related to music production, as well as guitar techniques and pedals. Guitar player in local band Apollo & The Rockets, he's got experience in the northern Snohomish county music scene and loves to talk shop! He also teaches private intermediate level guitar lessons for those looking to expand their music vocabulary and find their voice on guitar, ask him about setting up a lesson next time you stop by!

King of Tuning, Prince of Polishing, and our finest warrior against dust and fingerprints. Nick's been coming into the shop for years, so his evolution into a Bigfoot has been a natural one. Lover of all things Metal, he's knowledgeable about all sorts of band trivia and pointy guitars.
Sam Dobesh -------- (Currently on sabbatical)
The second Dobesh here in the shop, Sam is our resident bass lover. Sam plays double bass in a symphony and jazz combo, as well as electric bass in local bands like Apollo & The Rockets.
