Mel Bay Publications is bringing the past into the digital age. Hard to find, discontinued and vintage Mel Bay products are now being made available as digital downloads. Want a new book or song to learn at 4 am? Need something new for a student in the next twenty minutes? Now you can find material and get it almost instantaneously.

Downloads have been created using the Adobe PDF file format. Simply browse www.MelBay.com, find the product you are looking for, download the plug-in that allows you to view the file and continue to the check-out to purchase the download. Once you have checked out you will be authorized to view the encrypted file for 5 hours and print it up to two times. After this time has expired the file will no longer be accessible.

The formatting of downloads allows one to pick and choose what they want from the book. The entire book may be purchased, or just one song, or an entire section depending on how it has been divided up. Many books had CDs with them when purchased new. Now the entire accompanying CD is also available for download as MP3 files. The audio files are free with the download of a product.

Over 130 books have been broken up into 980 sections, covering many style and instruments. Embracing the internet, Mel Bay is moving forward with not only digital print products, but soon introducing streaming video lessons.
