Business Representative

Ed Intagliata

Owner/manager

Hi! I'm Ed Intagliata the owner/manager of Cassell's Music. My father, Sal, and I bought the store from a retiring Al Cassell in 1978. The store has been in San Fernando, Ca. since 1947. Consequently, we have quite a long history with many of our local customers.

I graduated from Cal State Fullerton in 1976 with a major in Music Education. After graduating, I worked for a season in the complaint department at Sears. During that time I had the tremendous opportunity to be trained by an organization that many consider to be the best in retail and customer service. Sears' training along with my music education and over 22 years in the music retail business has equipped me to provide what I believe is the utmost in customer satisfaction. The hundreds of regular customers I'm on a first name basis with can attest to that.

Rental

Renting a musical instrument can often be a challenging and potentially frustrating experience for parents. There are many instruments, brands, and rental houses to choose from when deciding on an instrument rental. Unfortunately, there is very little information available to assist parents in this decision process.

We have been renting musical instruments to students for many years. We are proud to be partnered with a very large and reputable instrument rental firm called Music and Arts.

With all the online services offered, it is refreshing to see that a real music store is still around! I think it's because Ed (the owner) is such a nice guy. Whenever I come in, he is so helpful. He has fixed various second hand instruments that I've brought in, and his prices are very reasonable.
I enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere, and the good old fashioned service.
Keep up the great work, Ed!

It’s been quite a few years since we’ve done business with Ed and Cassell’s as our children are grown and I now live in Arizona, but we have many fond memories of this shop. All of our children are still very much into music and our eldest a professional working musician. Nice to hear of the “play it forward” program for young beginners !

It was great to stop at a vintage music store! It was like taking a trip back to the 1950's or 1960's. I remember music stores like this from my youth, but haven't seen one for a long time. The owner was very personable also.
