Key Leaves Launches ‘Music Store Stimulus’ Program

With so many of its retail partners unable to function normally, Key Leaves has announced a “Music Store Stimulus” program. Key Leaves will credit its dealers for direct sales received at to help support the many brick-and-mortar stores suffering from Covid-19 closures. This program includes all music stores that are currently part of the Key Leaves Dealer Network in North America and overseas.

Key Leaves is a small family business that is now operating from a quarantined home workshop to make its saxophone key props. Shoppers on will be invited to name the music store from which they would normally be making their purchase, and if the store is part of Key Leaves’ dealer network, Key Leaves will compensate the dealer the markup amount from standard dealer prices for that product. The program is now in effect and will continue until the pandemic subsides and most dealers are open again for business.

“Our family business is lucky to be able to continue making and shipping products from a home workshop during quarantine. Music stores simply can't do this,” says Key Leaves Founder and President, Rulon Brown. “If we do all we can now to give aid to local music stores, they will weather this storm and keep serving musicians, schools and communities. I want to give special thanks to Jody Espina of JodyJazz who started this innovative stimulus program in his business. It makes perfect sense for our industry to support each other this way.”
