  • It's happening. A Masterclass with the legend himself, Steve Vai.

    Event takes place on June 6, 2015 by Neil Shukla

    There's way too much to be said about Steve Vai. Once a student of the great Joe Satriani, he has risen to become one of the most respected electric guitar virtuosos of all time. He's a critical part of the G3 tour, hosted by him, Joe Satriani and other legendary guitarists such as John Petrucci and Yngwie Malmsteen. His full discography encompasses over 60 albums, as well as three Grammy awards.

  • Hot Docs! Look out for these documentaries on musicians

    Posted on April 24, 2015 by Neil Shukla

    Hot Docs is the second only to TIFF in Toronto when it comes to the film industry. We always like it when music gets explored in new and interesting ways on film. These are some of the documentaries we are looking forward to.

Her career has been long and storied, and a force for positivity in American culture. Hot Docs will shed an intimate light on Mavis’ incredible career. Find out more [...]  Read more

  • Cosmo Music visits the Gibson Custom Shop

    Posted on March 12, 2015 by Neil Shukla

    We've been lucky to enjoy a great relationship with our premium vendors. Over the years, we've visited Taylor, Martin, Suhr, and Fender's Custom Shop factories to have a part in the creation of some truly artisan instruments. Earlier this year, we got to visit the Gibson Custom Shop in Nashville, Tennessee to work with their talented builders and select some truly authentic pieces for our customers.

    We were lucky enough to select from a short list of 'just completed' guitars.  This beautiful Les Paul Custom in natural quilt is headed to Cosmo!

    You can truly see that the beauty of a Gibson Custom Les Paul comes straight from the wood choice. This is a premium instrument to it's core.
