Musical equipment is expensive though, so thankfully Long & McQuade offer both rentals and in-store financing! This is the perfect way to grab that guitar you’ve always wanted, or get your kid a drum-kit and pay it in instalments so that you aren’t broke! This right here is a jack of all trades.

L.A. Music is another staple of Mississauga located along Lakeshore Road East and it has everything you could ask for, not to mention a fantastic look and vibe.
The store has a huge list of guitars to choose from, as well as amps, keyboards, drums, speakers, recording equipment, DJ gear, and even custom guitars that you can have made!
