ACHILLES IS COMMITTED TO THE SUCCESS OF ALL ARTISTS. WHATEVER KIND OF MUSIC YOU PLAY, WE’LL HELP YOU FIND THE RIGHT INSTRUMENTS AND RECORD YOUR SONGS FOR THE WORLD TO HEAR!
– HECTOR BENSON
Welcome to Achilles Acoustics, the largest music supply and recording franchise in the Carolinas! Founded in 1993 by Raleigh-based guitar enthusiast Hector Benson, Achilles Acoustics specializes in selling, repairing, and recording stringed instruments. Whether music is your career or your hobby, there’s no better supply shop than Achilles!
Achilles has a wide range of new and used instruments, including guitars, pianos, harps, and didjeridus. If we don’t have the instrument you want in stock, we’ll be happy to order it for you at no extra charge! Whatever your style or price range, we can get you the instruments you need!
A broken instrument is a tragedy, but Achilles can render it good as new! Bring us your damaged oboe, trumpet, or clarinet and we’ll have it back in working order in a matter of days!
Is your band ready to take its music to the world? Achilles’s state-of-the-art recording studio is the perfect place to produce, edit, and market your first album!
If you’re new to making music, Achilles will teach you the skills you need to get started! Our team is trained to play and teach most of the instruments we carry, and if there’s an instrument we can’t play, we’ll put you in touch with an instructor who can!
I’ve been teaching music for twenty years, and have consistently relied on Achilles to provide the instruments I need. They never let me down, providing high-quality instruments at a fraction of the price of most other stores.
Not only has Achilles provided us with the instruments and recording services we need, but it has also been one of our best recruiters, encouraging its customers to try out for the choir!
Whenever I break my guitar, I can trust Achilles to have it fixed by the next morning!
Besides providing me with instruments and repairs, the local Achilles store has become my informal study spot, a place to brainstorm with other musicians.
