About Maple Leaf Music

Founded in 1979, Maple Leaf Music has become the go to store for quality fretted instruments in New England and beyond. As an actual downtown, brick and mortar presence with a long standing reputation for great service and knowledge, we strive to source the finest stringed instruments for all levels and playing styles. As co-owners of Maple Leaf Music, we know that music makes people‚Äôs lives better. It is a unifying force that connects us as human beings, and an age-old human tradition that brings joy and provides a venue for personal expression. For over 35 years, we have served our local community and surrounding regions, specializing in the sale of individually produced, handcrafted, stringed instruments. In a retail landscape now dominated by large, impersonal box stores and mass-produced inventory, supporting, sustaining, and preserving the craft of small-batch instrument builders has become a priority for us. As one of only a handful of stores of our kind remaining, we attract professional to amateur musicians and collectors from around the nation. Also, we are the trusted local resource for live sound advice, repairs, lessons and entry-level instrument purchases. We strive to be an oasis for those who share our passion for making great music and the tradition of fine hand craftsmanship.
