In 1986, Jim and Karen Dombrowski, opened Jim’s Music in Escanaba, MI. Jim’s started out as a small family-owned business and quickly grew into 4 stores. Jim's has been providing private music instruction in the area for over 20 years.  Jim’s staff includes over 17 professional and highly trained instructors as well as a talented repair team (including a member of the National Association of Professional Band Instrument Repair Technicians).

Jim’s carries full lines of electric and acoustic guitars, banjos, drums, digital and acoustic pianos, amplifiers, and sound system equipment. With their extensive rent-to-own program, they also have a professional sound division called "Ludington Sound" which designs, installs, and troubleshoots sound systems for churches, schools, dance clubs, and outdoor functions. 

Jim’s Music has been a customer of Tri-Tech for 10 years.  When Jim’s decided to expand to another location they realized they needed a better POS system to grow with them. They discovered AIMsi at the 2005 NAMM, National Association of Music Merchants, while they were contemplating adding a third location. 

“AIMsi had the best features and value on the market and we decided to make the jump to this POS.  AIMsi has helped us go from two to four stores in the last ten years, and in that time, we've gone from five to over thirty employees.”  - EJ, Store Manager

Over the years, Jim’s Music has purchased and implemented all the modules that AIMsi has to offer.  Active-e handles their online rentals, web site hosting, and the B2B portion which has been a huge time saver in maintaining their inventory.  “We just started this year, to do the Online Scheduler, which has worked well for setting lessons up from our website.”

While AIMsi has assisted Jim’s Music with increased efficiencies, EJ also stated, “One of the best resources we have is Tri-Tech's knowledgeable support staff.  I can't say enough nice things about Josh, Brian, Travis, and Casey and all the help they have provided over the years.  We are very happy with AIMsi and the support it has provided and would highly recommend it.” 

We would like to thank Jim’s Music for their loyalty, support and business.  We are grateful to contribute to your store’s continued success.  Check them out at
