We Buy & Sell Used Gear!


We love Gear!

Music is an experience.  Immerse yourself in that experience at Grand Central Music.

From lessons to gear to equipment rentals, we are your one stop shop for your music needs. No generic box store here, but a local store full of cool music gear such as new and used electric and acoustic guitars and basses, guitar strings and tuners, pedals, keyboards, band instruments and accessories, and more! We offer a wide range of services catering to musicians of all skill levels. Lessons (guitar, bass, drums, piano, horns, vocals and more), instrument maintenance, setups, repairs, PA rental gear and installation. We even do custom cables, pedal boards and PA systems as well!
