Portland Musical Instrument Sales Stores

Old Town Music – Portland Oregon

Where I teach. Best prices in town (ridiculously low) and nicest people. Old Town has been owned by the same person since 1994, and before that it was Denny’s Music, and Old Town is very kind to me. I have many years of experience working in guitar shops, repair shops and the like. Old Town does instrument sales, boutique and mass manufactured effects and pedals, synthesizers, guitars; instrument repair and custom electronic repair and buildouts.

    1. Hey Eric! Thanks so much for getting in touch. I’ve actually heard that your shop is awesome, and I’ve heard it through my friends in Portland music repair shops and stores!!

      Keep up the good work. I’ll stop in soon.

  1. You know, you were right. Not a whole lot of PDX techs handle solid state amps well. I don’t play solid state, but I have 2 amps at my lesson studio that are solid state amps. Students tend to “rip out cords” quickly haha, so I’m sure I’ll be stopping by sooner rather than later!

    Synth repair too! Very cool.
