Hello and welcome to TrollMusic.com, My name is Mark Rom and I am the owner of Troll Music in beautiful downtown Venice, Florida.  Troll Music has been a landmark in Venice and throughout the southwest Florida music community for over 25 years, and continues to thrive with a focus on top notch customer service, excellent value and quality brand name products.  We have proudly served thousands of customers throughout the years, from the beginner to seasoned professionals. It is my mission to continue providing our products and services to our musical friends and the community for many years to come. It all began way back in 1989, when Nick Ferlicchi and Danny Swain realized their dream of creating a music store where the local musical community could come for quality products, great musical advice and high level instruction and repairs.  Troll’s first location was in a small storefront under the Venice Avenue Bridge, making the name choice of “Troll Music” an obvious one. Today we are prominently located at 520 E. Venice Avenue, just a few doors down from the original location. As a longtime customer of the store and a working musician, I was presented with the unique opportunity to carry on the legacy that is Troll Music. With 28 years of experience owning and operating two other successful businesses here in the Venice area, I bring some of my knowledge and ideas to create an even better buying experience for our in store customers, as well as offering an improved online presence for our web customers. Troll Music has withstood the test of time, and has survived in a rapidly changing industry by embracing the down home atmosphere of a mom & pop shop, while maintaining a high level of quality and value that is competitive with online merchants and big box retailers. Our new and improved website has a great catalogue of what we have to offer so please, browse a bit, and check back frequently to view our current inventory and to find out what our latest specials are. Our sales team of James Albritton, Billy Day and Cliff Randi are long time industry professionals as well as multi-instrumentalist, gigging musicians, so they are uniquely qualified to answer your questions and to help you make an informed buying decision. Cliff also maintains our web presence and spearheads our enhanced music education program. Great things are happening here at Troll Music and we want YOU to be a part of it!  Stop by, call, email or visit our website today and give us the opportunity to earn your business.  Thanks for visiting our store! And remember…”Keep it between the beats!”


If you can reach it we can teach it!  In the last year we have expanded and enhanced our musical education program, bringing in highly qualified, experienced teachers for just about any instrument.  We’ve constructed a super-cool teaching space complete with 4 private lesson rooms, a stage and a seating capacity for over 50 people.  All of our students have the opportunity to take part in recitals, clinics, open jam sessions and special “invitation only” concerts.  Our students also receive special in-store discounts and advanced notice of exclusive sales.  Here is a little about what we teach and who teaches it.


Our repair team has over a hundred years of experience repairing, restoring and maintaining most makes and models of musical instruments and electronic equipment, from fretted instruments, brass, woodwinds to guitar amplifiers and PA equipment.  Whether your instrument needs a little help or a breath of new life, or if your amp needs a gentle boost, we’ve got the staff to get the job done.  Simple or big – we can help.  Our resident instrument tech James Albritton is on staff and handles most repairs and upgrades right in the store.  Some even while you wait.  Feel free to bring your instrument in and we will be happy to take a look at it for you and get it back to playing like it should.  Our service is great, are turnaround is quick, and our prices are fair.
