About Us

For over 23 years, Chicago Music Exchange has been serving musicians, collectors and friends who want straight answers, expertise, and first-hand knowledge. All of our staff 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 staff 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.

Stop by our flagship store when you are in town to meet us in person and experience our extraordinary store first-hand. See you soon!
