Our History


5th String Music has been in business since the early 1970s. Susan Snyder became the owner in 1980, and moved the store to its current location, in 1988.  Since then, she has been a provider of high quality instruments for the people of upstate South Carolina, and beyond.  

Our Mission


We here at 5th String want you to have the best experience possible, and that's why we do our business face to face as often as we can. We try our best to carry the products we know will sell, but also the ones that will last. For that reason, we go through every instrument top to bottom and set them up, to insure that you get the most out of it, and you can enjoy it for years to come. *We will sell and ship and instruments and accessories. Please contact us regarding any questions or concerns you might have. 

Our Goal


  We believe building that relationships with people  helps us run a better business, and create a better community of musicians overall. 

Allow us to be your hometown music store, and we assure that you will not be disappointed.
