Lakota Leathers instrument straps are made of Elk and Bison hide on the Pine Ridge Lakota Sioux reservation in South Dakota, one of the poorest areas of the US, so you not only get a unique and high quality strap, but you help support an impoverished area. Shop for straps here...
We like to give back to bluegrass and country music when we can. We sponsor Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers, shown here at their Grand Ole Opry debut in July 2013, and help the Sleepy Man Banjo Boys now and then.
JDAM and the Radio Ramblers most recently donated a new Recording King Banjo to the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation's Play It Forward Instrument Lending Program.

Janet Davis Acoustic Music :: JD Music
As you might have noticed, we've streamlined our name and updated our logos. This realigns our name with our acronym (JDMC) and incorporates the initials of the current owners. (The JD stands for "James David".)
We're still the same store, though, dedicated to providing the best musical instruments and gear available, and still staffed by friendly, knowledgeable musicians who you can trust to help you select the right products for your style and budget.
Every instrument is expertly adjusted in our shop before it is delivered to you.
Martin Guitar raffle at SOIMF benefits the IBMA Bluegrass Leadership program
Another fantastic weekend at the Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival in Wilmington, OH, just wrapped up. And again, the generosity of JD Music Company and the donations from our loyal audience have earned one gentleman a new Martin Guitar and raised hundreds of dollars for a worthy cause.
Congratulations to Ted Lewallen of Rudolph, OH! His donation to the International Bluegrass Music Association Leadership Bluegrass professional development program earned him the winning ticket, drawn Saturday night on the stage of the Roberts Centre. His model D-16 deluxe Martin Guitar complete with custom case, was donated by JD Music. Leadership Bluegrass alumni including Joe Mullins and Laurie Greenburg of the Class of 2015, Megan Brugger Class of 2010 and former facilitator of the program Fred Bartenstein all assisted in the fundraising effort.
The $2000 raised for in sponsorships will help the Leadership Bluegrass Class of 2016 enjoy a first-rate experience in Nashville, TN, at the upcoming program in March next year. The dollars will help fund materials, meals, professional facilitators and provide scholarships for deserving candidates.
"As a recent LBG graduate, I REALLY enjoyed the program and saw so many benefits that all provide lasting value and of course leadership to the Bluegrass community. With a loyal following of thousands of fans at my band's twice annual festivals, we are delighted to find a way to 'pay it forward' in raising funds for one of the keystone projects of the International Bluegrass Music Association" - Joe Mullins

Just wanted to say that the service I received was second to none. I bought a used Yates RS banjo and am thrilled with it. It arrived packed very well and condition exactly as described. When Tom called me for set up questions I could tell he really knew and loved banjos. He was very nice and even called me about a week after I received it just to see how I liked it. Highly recommend them.
I just called Tom Andersen to thank him for the Taylor 518e. He described the instrument before purchase, and then did a fantastic setup on it. It arrived in California in beautiful shape, ready to play. This is the second guitar I bought at your store, based on your reputation and good words. I can't tell you how impressed I am with your candor, professionalism, and trustworthy advice. The instruments were even better than you described.
Again many thanks, and keep up the great work.
I want to thank Janet Davis Acoustic Music and one of your sales representatives, Tom, for assisting me in purchasing and shipping the Tacoma JF-21 Jumbo guitar on Tuesday. I received the guitar on Wednesday, incredibly, and it is one beautiful instrument, exactly as described by Tom. I also want to specially thank him for the fantastic setup of the guitar, which even included brand new strings - what a great surprise!
The packing was also excellent, and I am one very, VERY happy and satisfied customer of Janet Davis Acoustic Music. I have bookmarked your website, and will always look there first when considering future instrument purchases (I already have my eye on one...).
Many thanks again!
I have purchased two Wildwood banjos from JD Music, a Troubadour, and very recently a Paragon. They are beautiful in appearance, and Tom Anderson does a fantastic job setting them up and optimizing their beautiful tone. He is a genius, not to mention a very friendly and helpful gentleman.
