Being a musician can be an expensive job, hobby, or obsession, and when it comes to instruments there are many things one can spend their hard-earned cash on.

In a city like Portland — filled to the brim with artistic and musical talent — there are plenty of options for those looking to secure a new tool of the trade. However, none stand up to the history and glory found at Portland’s own Old Town Music.

Located on SE 11th Avenue, Old Town Music plays (pun intended) home to one of the largest and rarest instrument retail collections in the country.

While shops like Old Town Music carry a plethora of new and brand-name gear on hand, it’s their historic collection of instruments that make this location a Disneyland for musicians in the Pacific Northwest.

To keep their inventory of classic and retro instruments, Old Town Music promotes to their customers a few options for selling their trusty and under-used equipment. At Old Town Music, players can sell their gear, trade it in for store-credit or directly towards other instruments and gear, or place their beloved gear on consignment where the store will share profit with the owner once the gear is sold.

So, whether you’re on the hunt for a new place to hang and geek out while expressing your musician nerdiness, or you would simply love to add something grand or classic to your collection, Old Town Music is one of the best places in Portland.

Stock and traffic at Old Town Music have risen so much that they have recently opened up a second location.

Check out either of the OTM shops in Portland for your fix of all things historic, collectible, playable, and instrumental.
