Welcome to Sonata Marketing, LTD

Sonata Marketing is an Independant Distribution company which specializes in high quality, boutique musical instrument products.

My name is John Files and I am the Principal at Sonata Marketing, LTD. My career in MI began in 1975 as a part-time sales associate. Since that beginning I moved on to full-time sales, then later, the manager of many ‘mom ‘n’ pop’ retail stores. I was the Store Manager (w/ 39 sales people that I helped train) for a large “BigBox” outlet years ago. My next venture was my own retail outlet, ‘Bass Emporium’, which I owned and operated until 2012. I then went to work for a few premier music products companies where I built websites, manned the NAMM booths, helped with product development and continued to take inbound calls from dealers.

Now begins the last phase of my retail lifecycle where I function in a B2B environment and help you source the products that can make your retail store more profitable. It’s great to see and hear from many of you that I have worked with in other positions and I am fortunate to have this opportunity to serve you all. If you are a retailer looking for product lines, let me know. If you  are a supplier / manufacturer that needs distribution, representation or sales, let me know this as well. Sonata Marketing, LTD. is located in Austin, Texas.
