Walden Guitars Now Distributed in U.S. by KHS America

Victoria Wasylak • Supplier Scene • July 23, 2020

After several years of absence from the market, Walden Guitars were re-introduced at the 2020 NAMM show this past January, and will be distributed in the United States by KHS America. Founded originally in 1996 by Jonathan Lee and KHS Musical Instruments, Walden offers Steel-string, Classical and Baritone guitars that offer unique low-mass bracing and neck reinforcement designs to meet the needs of discriminating players.

“I’m so excited to be working closely with KHS America to offer Walden guitars to U.S. musicians and dealers once again. My vision has always been to infuse every Walden with the best balance of musicality, stability, appearance and affordability,” says Jonathan Lee. “I always felt that the Walden story was not over, so when I had the opportunity to secure and re-awaken Walden, I had to take it. Today’s Waldens are the best yet and it is my hope that your 2020 Walden experience will be a wonderful one.”

“Adding Walden guitars to the KHS family of brands makes so much sense as it gives our retail partners more reasons to grow with us,” said Kevin Philbin, director of Sales and Marketing for Combo brands. “Jon Lee has done a terrific job designing an innovative and competitive product line and we look forward to renewing this partnership.”
