About our Waterloo Location

Formerly known as The Carpenter Shop Music Centre, we joined the Long & McQuade family in 2003 alongside our neighbours in Stratford & Cambridge. Since that time, we have expanded our inventory and services to fill both floors of our building. The main floor is split into Guitars, Bass & Folk Instruments, as well as Band, Orchestra and Home Keyboards. Don't miss our Recording and Pro Keys section at the back of the main floor. Down the stairs (located at the front-centre of the main floor), or from our rear-entrance, is home to our spacious Drum room, Lesson Centre and P/A Rental department.

We have staff with expertise in all areas and are always willing to answer any of your questions!
