About Us

Founded in 1974 by Brian Fischer, Ear Craft Music has long been an integral part of the New Hampshire music store and seacoast area music scene with a customer loyalty that can only be garnered through years of quality service.

Our sales staff carries a combined fifty plus years of music retail experience , with particularly deep knowledge in the areas of sound reinforcement, lighting, MIDI, digital recording, vintage, percussion, electric and acoustic guitar, and brass and woodwind. Discriminating musicians from all across New England travel to Dover for our quality instruments, confident both that a wide selection is always in stock, and that they are all set up well and playing great. We specialize in used gear, especially vintage and rare, curious items not seen in your average music store.
