‘The Signal Music & Technology’ opens in Lincoln City

A boutique music company is now operating out of a Lincoln City storefront thanks to the vision and work of its sole proprietor, Stephen Lampert. “The Signal Music & Technology” specializes in high-end musical equipment and accessories, in particular electric guitars, amplifiers, special effects pedals, specialty straps, picks and more.
The business was founded as a web-based enterprise by Lampert in January 2012. As his customer base grew, so did requests for a location to see his merchandise.

The public is invited to a grand opening at The Signal Music & Technology from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 24. The celebration will include refreshments, demos and prizes, including items from the Oregon Surf Shop in Lincoln City and Gerlitz Guitar Care in Salem.

“I did well in the first year, and I began getting a lot of calls from a lot of people wanting to try out what I carry,” Lampert says. So Lampert gutted a 1,000 square foot retail space in the Bonita Plaza in Delake (next to J’s Fish & Chips), and used his skills as a former construction worker to remodel the interior into a very comfortable, slightly swanky store complete with an isolation room for instrument demonstrations and try outs.

An Oregon coast native, Lampert attended the Lincoln City Seventh-day Adventist School and Taft High School before traveling the country to work a variety of different jobs. When the economy tanked and construction work dwindled, Lampert returned to school to study web design. He drew on his own musical interests, along with his experience from running a punk rock club in Vancouver, WA, working at a large independent music company in Portland to developing his own website, www.thesignalrocks.com.

Lampert, who plays regularly at the Vineyard Church, says he’s “always been a singer” but he didn’t pick up his first guitar until he was 18. Now proficient in electric guitar and bass, Lampert can also play a variety of other instruments although, he adds, “I’m not a prodigy.”

Through his connections with high-end dealers, Lampert has carved out a place for The Signal in the niche music market and has growing sales worldwide. Lampert’s biggest seller is the Timmy Overdrive Pedal, made in a custom color just for The Signal. “I get 30 (pedals) a month, and they sell out in minutes,” Lampert said.

Lampert is the sole buyer/web designer/manager/shipper for The Signal. He says, “I pretty much do everything, but that’s how it works.”

The Signal Music & Technology is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and by appointment Monday through Thursday. The store is located at 1800 SE Hwy. 101, Unit H, Lincoln City, and the phone number is 541-669-0038. More information is also available at www.thesignalrocks.com.
