Profile Last Updated: January 08, 2009
Long & McQuade is the largest retailer of musical instruments across Canada, and prides itself on the consistency of its selection and service. Everything from drum kits to the latest in Gibson guitars is available, with every type of wood wind, brass, and string instrument in between. In addition to the brand new instruments on offer, they also have a large previously used selection, allowing customers to trade in musical affinities they may have outgrown for their newest musical passion. Can’t play but still want to be a part of the music? Long & McQuade also offers a large selection of recording and DJ equipment. In other words, everything you need to cut an album or rock the house is here. They’ll even come and install it.
For a Day, For a Week
You also have the option of buying or renting your musical instruments, allowing touring musicians the option of a fresh supply wherever they may be. This is also perfect for musicians who play occasional events, like weddings, proms, etc. This also allows customers to take advantage of their rent-to-own program, which provides the option of trying out the instruments to get the perfect right “fit.” Perhaps aware of the sometimes transitory financial nature of the music business, Long & McQuade also offers a comprehensive selection of in-store financing options.
School of Rock
This location of Long & McQuade is one of the chain’s many musical education centres, where students of all ages can become proficient in their instrument of choice, be it piano, guitar, bass, drums, woodwinds, strings or voice (or the new “rock band program”). The centre features professional studios, highly qualified teachers and private instruction for all ages, levels and styles. Students can then go home and practice, after selecting from the country’s largest selection of sheet music.
National Chain: There are 28 locations nationwide.
Sheet Music Orders: Most sheet music can be ordered and will be available for pick up within a week.
