About Us

For 25 years, Chicago Music Exchange has been serving musicians, collectors, and friends who want straight answers, expertise, and first-hand knowledge. We are passionate about what we sell and who we sell to, whether you talk to us on the phone about a vintage Gibson Les Paul gold top, come to the store to check out a new Drum Kit, or email us about a Marshall amp. All of the team members you talk to are musicians who pay attention to the details, as well as technicians who have seen and fixed just about everything you can think of. We do love to be challenged on the geeky stuff.

As a premier authority on vintage, new, and used music equipment, our goal at Chicago Music Exchange is to give you the finest selection of guitars, amps, bass, effects, and drums & percussion in the world, with service that will blow you away.
