Welcome to the
Chicago Synth Exchange

Chicago Music Exchange might have started as a shop geared toward a guitar-playing clientele—but, it has since outgrown that reputation to become a destination for the whole band!

Now, just as CME’s BASSment and Chicago Drum Exchange have grown into destination locations for their respective product categories—so, too, is Chicago Synth Exchange, for all things synthesizer!

Offering a wide range of products, including some of the most popular synth models available on the market—plus brand names you won’t find anywhere else in the Midwest—Chicago Synth Exchange carries everything from electric pianos and keyboards, alike, to Eurorack modules, MIDI controllers, drum, and everything in between!
