Make Your Own Music with Instruments, Keyboards and Digital Pianos, Guitars and Home Recording Gear
Making music is no easy task. You need talent, dedication, and, well, gear. Future Shop carries a large selection of musical instruments, keyboards and pianos, and home recording equipment to help you create and execute your musical ambitions. Whether you want to start a metal band with heavy guitars, bass and drums, or write your own interpretation of Kraftwerk’s Autobahn with a synthesizer and some effects software, we have all the equipment you need, from all the top brands, to get things going.
When learning how to play a musical instrument, the gear really does matter. Having an instrument that stays in tune and sounds good often means the difference between sticking with it and getting better over time, or quitting right there on the spot. Luckily, ‘good’ and ‘expensive’ are not synonymous, and you can buy a great guitar, bass, set of drums, or amplifier without breaking the bank. Future Shop carries a wide selection of musical instruments from brands like Fender, Washburn, Boss, Marshall, Line 6, Ampeg, Yamaha, Zildjian, and more – so there’s plenty to choose from in a wide price range.
How are you ever going to perfect that twelve minute solo you've always dreamed of performing to a sold-out audience at Madison Square Garden if you don't even have a guitar? We recommend fixing this problem ASAP. Future Shop has an excellent selection of the best guitars available. Try out axes from brands like Fender, Gibson, Tanglewood and Yamaha, and soon you'll be on your way to the Garden.
