The Complete (and Longer) Answer
The Adventurous Muse Store no longer exists. We still own the Adventurous Muse Store domain name. It is used to redirect people to the new Don Rickert Musician Shop.
The Adventurous Muse Store has "migrated" to the Don Rickert Musician Shop. Because the Adventurous Muse Store no longer exists, any links to the products that used to reside there will not work. These are called "dead links."
This website/blog, Don Rickert Musical Instruments (www.RickertMusicalInstruments.com), previously called the Adventurous Muse (we let that domain expire) has been around for a good while. Prior to a major clean up, there were more than 700 articles here. Many of these articles were clearly "junk", such as old holiday sales notifications and the like. We got rid of these. However, several hundred articles with useful information remained. Of these, about 100 were of especially high value to us in that they are relevant to products we currently sell at the new Don Rickert Musician Shop. We went to considerable trouble to revise these high value articles. In addition to correcting links, we did a lot of re-writing. Despite our efforts, there could still be some bad links, and for that we apologize.
The other 150-200 articles. We have not yet revised these. Most will have incorrect links pointing the the defunct Adventurous Muse Store. It will be a while before we get a chance to revise these older articles. If you encounter dead links to the Adventurous Muse Store, your best bet is to go to the Don Rickert Musician Shop to see the products currently offered. Apologies for any inconvenience. The up side is that we know from analysis of usage statistics that most visitors to these older articles are interesting in their content rather than actually buying anything from us.
Why Did We Close the Adventurous Muse Store?
The main reason is that the online store hosting system, run by ProStores, got out of the online store hosting business, so we had to migrate (to BigCommerce) regardless. We took this migration as an opportunity to do a badly needed product cleanup and reorganization. We also took the opportunity to use a new domain name, Don Rickert Musician Shop, that was more closely connected to our company name, Don Rickert Musical Instruments.
So there you have it.
