About

Who created Instrument Hound? It was Blaine Booth.

Instrument Hound is the Internet’s first and only musical instrument search site created by a musician and designed exclusively for musicians.

Our custom searches deliver results from multiple online musical instrument retailers throughout the United States, Canada, the UK, Australia, Germany and Japan. Instrument Hound will save you time and effort. One click and our custom searches will search hundreds of musical instrument sites to find exactly what you are looking for.

Our search returns eliminate most non-essential and peripheral ‘junk’ such as unnecessary paid ads, promos and irrelevant information that you normally find in typical search queries. Our searches cut through all that and return only relevant retail listings. 

How do we do this? Our custom search engines are uniquely and specifically configured to search only top online musical instrument stores, specialty shops and other musical instrument listing sites such as Amazon, Reverb and Ebay.

Looking for used instruments? We have included an option to do an aggregate search of Craigslist in the USA, Canada, the UK, Australia, Germany and Japan. We’ve also included a custom search of all Kijiji Canada, Quoka in Germany and Gumtree in both the UK and Australia.

Our goal is to provide musicians a more convenient and time saving option to search for gear. We intend to continually improve our website. Feel free to provide your feedback on our contact page. Let us know how we can improve our website in order to best optimize the Instrument Hound experience.

Thank you for using Instrument Hound. We hope you find it useful.
