Guitar Center

On our opening day in 1998, Guitar Center Towson became the company's first location in the Mid-Atlantic region. Located at 1524 E. Joppa Road, our friendly staff just also happens to be made up of the most knowledgable group of music experts in Baltimore. Not to mention, we're proud to offer a wide selection of services and programs, as well as an impressive variety of musical instruments and sound gear. Whether you're an aspiring percussionist, a veteran metal shredder or an enthusiastic DJ, there's always someone on hand to help you find what you're looking for, and even give you some pointers along the way.

From keyboards and drums to recording software, and the best selection of boutique effects pedals in a 50 mile radius, each one of our departments is jam-packed with the tools you need to bring your skills to the limelight. Visit our Platinum Room for the finest axes being crafted today, or take a stroll over to our Vintage Collection and browse the impressive range of classic guitars and rare amplifiers. For all you gigging professionals, turn your attention to the GC Pro section, which is loaded with audio, video, lighting and sound installation options. Rentals are also available on a wide array of instruments and equipment, and our "try before you buy" philosophy means that you can test our products right in the store before taking them home.
