Unleash Your Music

Drop some jaws

Your local music store in Goldsboro and Wilson, North Carolina. We’ve got a carefully curated selection of brands for all your needs, band instrument rentals, music lessons and professional sound installations.

Music Lessons

You’ve got the talent. Now get the guidance. Don’t go your whole life missing out on a part of yourself. Learn from our professionals and get the musical background you need to unleash your music. Everyone starts somewhere.

Band Rentals

So your kid wants to play the tuba in the school band. You’re ready for the…ahem…beautiful noises, but you’re not ready to dish out the money on a new instrument. We get it. That’s why we have rentals and used instruments so they can blow their little hearts away at a price you can be happy about.

Gear & Service

If you are looking for some new gear, whether you are a beginner or a pro, let our experts help you find quality gear to match your budget. And when the time comes, we’ll service it like it was our own. The cardboard box from the internet store can’t do that.

Sound Installs

Don’t let subpar sound equipment ruin your hard work. From churches to schools to theaters, have it professionally installed and experience the difference. Maybe little Suzy isn’t meant for the stage, but at least give her a fighting chance with the right equipment professionally installed.

About Us

Eddie started Fat Cat Music and Sound in 2013 with a dream to create a local music store that would be a place where musicians of all skill levels could come and take the next step in their musical journey.

Eddie started out in an elementary school band, but when his family moved to North Carolina, they didn’t offer band until middle school. Someone gave him a guitar to play and he never looked back. He’s been playing in local bands for decades and knows what it looks like when you match talent with the right equipment. These days, you can catch him playing with Captain Mancave.
