Founded in 1927 in downtown Lincoln by its patriarch, August Dietze, a local string bass player, the company charter has always had its roots firmly planted in serving the musician. Long term support of local schools and the professional community has been the cornerstone of the success of this company. While our policy of service after the sale is not unique in the retail industry, it is a hallmark of our reputation, as well as a fundamental mechanism in the long term health of the business. We apply a “Golden Rule” approach to all customer relationships. We treat them as honestly, competently, and as thoroughly as we would expect to be treated ourselves.
Over the years, Dietze has sold televisions, stereos, record players, accordions, and many other music related items. We are a full line music store, sought regionally for its large variety of printed music, band instruments, pianos & electronic keyboards, drums, guitars, and P.A. In addition, we offer full repair service for band & orchestral instruments, percussion, guitars, and many electronic instruments. Positioning ourselves as a catalyst for music education, Dietze has a long history of offering private instruction for winds & brass, percussion, guitar and keyboards. We consistently boast a high concentration of employees with music education degrees.
