Made in the USA Buying Guide

What better way to celebrate America’s birthday than with a premium instrument made right here in the grand ol’ U.S. of A.! We work closely with manufacturers to ensure that these products are American-made with the kind of care and attention to detail you’d expect from Chicago Music Exchange, because top quality construction makes for an unparalleled playing experience.  

We've got deals on amazing USA-made products from sea to shining sea. Kick your red white and blues and have some change left over to get out, go play and hear all that America has to offer.

From CME exclusives to incredible vintage finds, custom shop one-offs and more, our historic selection of electrics shows American craft at its most beautiful.

America is home to the greatest builders of pedals and effects in the world, and we’ve got an armory of the best of the best with effects that sparkle, crackle, boom and blast. That’s something Uncle Sam can hang his hat on.

If Uncle Sam was in a band, you just know he’d be the bass player. That hat? Those pants? He’d be holding down the groove and looking American as apple pie with a USA-made bass that can only come from one place: CMEs BASSment.

What would “The Star-Spangled Banner” be without the thunder of the tympani and the lightning flash of the orchestral crashes? Drums are the driving force behind any anthem, and Chicago Drum Exchange has all the American-made thunder and lightning you need to storm the stage or the studio.

It takes doing a lot of little things well for any big thing to go right. So you’d better make sure those little things receive the same came and attention as anything else. That’s why American-made accessories are available in every department of Chicago Music Exchange: a little help for all your big things.
