Hello everyone. Clement here.
Many people enjoy listening to music. But many people also enjoy playing musical instruments. But when coming to Vancouver, it’s hard to bring instruments with you, and not often worth it if you are only staying for a short time.
Fortunately, many music shops will rent instruments for a certain price, and one of the best is Long and Mcquade on Main Street in Vancouver. Long and Mcquade is one of the biggest music stores in Vancouver, along with Tom Lee music. Both of these stores have multiple locations of different sizes, but they all have the same thing in common. Lots of musical instruments, of all kinds. Whether you play guitar, bass, saxophone, trumpet, drums, piano, or almost anything else, there is something here for everyone. Long and Mcquade is one of the largest music stores in Vancouver, along with Tom Lee music. Both of these stores have many locations all across Canada. Today, we will be discussing Long and Mcquade.
The biggest branch of this store is located near the Main Street skytrain station, approximately a 5 minute walk. The building is a large, open space with instruments and parts for any musician. All departments have their own sections in the store, making it easy and quick to find whatever you may need. If you get lost or have questions, the staff are always quick to answer questions or show you around, and will even set you up with the right equipment if you want to try out an instrument in one of several small soundproof rooms. The customer service at this store is wonderful and is most certainly one of the highlights of shopping at this store! Once you have found an instrument you like, there are many options available to you. Rentals can be arranged for a certain amount of days, a week, a month, etc. If you are on a tight budget but still would like to buy an instrument, new or used, there are options for up to 12 monthly payments of a certain amount so you can pay for the instrument over a year instead of all at once. The store also has many sales and discounts available during certain times of the year, which provide even more opportunities! With so many options, amazing customer service, and a great variety of instruments and gear to choose from, this shop is definitely one to visit, whether you are a musician or someone who just loves music and looking at instruments!
