There is no better way than the Osborne series of music and reference guides to reach the folks you want as new customers. Tens of thousands are sold every year, directly from the publisher as well as through book sellers worldwide. If you can benefit by reaching new buyers and sellers, you simply must have an ad in our books.

You'll find yourself in good company too, right along with many of the field's most-respected dealers who regularly advertise in the Osborne music guides. Some have been with us for nearly 40 years!

AD RATES are still a real bargain. Our full-page page rate has not increased since our first book, in 1975! Without a doubt, it's the most cost-effective way to reach the musical marketplace. However, the number of pages in the ad section ("Buyers-Sellers Directory") is limited. Ad space is offered on a first-come, first-serve basis, with previous advertisers always having priority.

Upcoming publications with ad space available:

Rockin' Records Buyers-Sellers Reference Book & Price Guide: 2017 Edition
Ad deadline is Nov. 20, 2016
