Guitar Center has been a part of Durham's Northgate community since May 25th, 2006.  We are here to offer advice and service to any level of musician from beginner to professional. 

Our associates have extensive recording, production, and performance experience in a wide variety of settings.  Whether you're recording at home, touring the country, or just picking up an instrument for the first time, one of us has been there and can help you find the gear you need.

We are a full-line music retail location with guitars, basses, amps, DJ, live sound, recording, drums, and accessories.  Also, we have an onsite Guitar Tech for all your guitar, bass, and other stringed instrument repair needs. 

Stop by on a Saturday morning for our Recording Made Easy class where we give you the basic information you need for home computer recording.  Visit our live sound room to check out a great selection of lighting, mixers, and speakers.  You can demo the latest DJ gear or a wide variety of keyboards, workstations, and recording software throughout our Pro Audio department. 

You will also find hundreds of guitars on our main wall and in our cedar acoustic room.  Want to crank up the coolest new amp?  You can do just that in our Vault.  Round out your rhythm section with basses and amps in our Rumble Room.  Or complete your drum set-up with a new kit or a great selection of cymbals in our Drum Department.

We also have you taken care of if you just need to stop by for the essentials like strings, picks, sticks, and cables in our Accessories Department and throughout the store.

Come visit us here at Guitar Center Durham.  We're here to help you make music.
