Hey everyone. I recently opened an online musical instrument store. I'll omit the link because I don't want this to be a sales pitch (although, if you want the link, feel free to ask). I've been going through quite a few other music forums and asking why I'm not getting any traffic and further more why folks that are coming to my site aren't purchasing anything. The general response is that the music industry is hurting as a whole. Apparently the recession has turned musical instruments into a luxury item. Granted that it's not something that is required to live, but definately something that would be highly rated in the "want" category. Would you all agree that the recession has hit us in the music field as hard as other industries?
