In 2005, hundreds of gigging veterans and aspiring up and comers came by during Guitar Center Des Moines' grand opening celebration. Our dedication to anyone who has the desire to pick up a musical instrument has made us a staple of the local music community, and our friendly team of experts are just as diverse as the scene itself. In fact, many members of our crew are active musicians who perform often throughout West Des Moines and the surrounding areas! Whether you're a professional jazz cat, enthusiastic DJ or an amateur guitar player, we cover all tastes and skill levels here in our store at 3910 University Avenue.
It's really no wonder that national touring bands and hobbyists alike swing by our store. From guitars, drums, amps and pedals to keyboards, recording software, DJ gear and much more, our selection features all of the most well-known brands. Want to try anything in particular? Feel free to test it out right in our shop! Our used stock is always changing as well, so you never know what classic instrument or piece of equipment you'll find. All this, along with free "Recording Made Easy" workshops held every Saturday morning, make us Des Moines one-stop-shop for everything music-related. Interested in anything in particular? Give us a call at 515-267-9501, and we'll help you out in any way we can.
Like all Guitar Center locations, we also offer comprehensive repair services at our Des Moines store. Our techs are as passionate about your instruments as you are, with the experience needed to keep them performing at their best. Whether you need a quick adjustment or a complete overhaul, we've got the equipment and know-how to take care of it. The repairs department would love to hear from you: in fact, we encourage it! Call or come in for a face-to-face chat about the work that we do. You'll have no doubt that your gear is in good hands when it's time for a repair.
