The Fellowship of Acoustics
We have always been opposed to being trapped into a job eight hours a day to purchase the free time to do what I enjoy. That’s why i started the Fellowship of Acoustics. The fellowship of acoustics was founded by Rudi Bults, Guitarist and obsessed with tone and wood. The idea was offering real expertise when trading and selling the finest instruments in the world from our showroom in Bergentheim, Netherlands. Helping others find the right tools and enjoying an atmosphere that’s unhurried, honest and informative that’s my go. We are nothing like the "supermarket" style music stores, but specialize in string-things only. We are widely known for Flattop guitars but also sell electric, mandolins & banjo’s, amps, parts, and accessories. Our store has earned the reputation for being a great place to shop for the best products and service.
It is our hope that this new website - much more than a list of "gear" for sale - will serve as an example of our commitment to offering a more personal approach, a friendly atmosphere, and an ultimately more satisfying experience for our friends and customers.
If you have any questions just dial +31-523-232205 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org My name is Rudi Bults, and I’m always here to help out. Wherever possible, we would recommend that you visit our store and experience our instruments and service first hand. However, because of our high standards you can be confident of ordering online from us. We hope you enjoy your visit to our site, and welcome your feedback.
We do speak English, Dutch and German! Feel free to call in any of these languages and ask your questions! Call 0031-523-232205 Ask for Rudi or Erwin

We gladly cover the extreme transfer costs from British banks. Paypal: Despite what they say, for UK buyers very slow unless you have a credit card. E-checks can take up to three weeks. Its also very expensive for the seller and the exchange rate is killing. We grant the opportunity but strongly advice Bank wire payment because e-checks will run this circuit anyhow. Money Transfer: by Westen Union® With some 250,000 Western Union locations worldwide it’s easy and fast to transfer money. Very convenient to transfer CASH money! You can use the internet for payment and/or use bank and Mastercard/visa. Costs are relatively low. Exchange rate is bad! Checks: We do no longer accept checks. To much fraud going on.
