Rik Asher and John Brown were musicians striving to find their own unique sound. As a result, they began making custom, personalized guitars and amplifiers. A few years later, they formally rolled out the Asher-Brown product line. Together, the two can tweak just about anything to help get a musician's desired effect. The duo uses all Tennessee white pine, much of it from Brown's family farm, milled by his brother in Blount County. You can buy Asher-Brown amps and guitars at Rik's Music Store in Knoxville. Rik’s Music was a dream going all the way back to the 1970s. After working as a touring guitarist for many years, Rik was finally ready to open his first store in 1993. Expanding to larger locations four times in less than ten years, Rik’s Music eventually settled on Kingston Pike in West Knoxville. Rik’s Music has become the premier music shop in Knoxville. With an all-new Whammy Bar Cafe, a live music venue and music school, and the many incredible products and services that Rik’s offers under one roof, Rik’s Music is the place to be.
