We carry guitars, basses, drums, mics, amps, ukes, effects, violins, cellos, brass, woodwind, accessories, and just about anything you could think of for music gear.

Rocktown has the best selection of instruments & gear in central Minnesota. You’ll find a huge inventory to suit your musical needs, with prices that can compete with other online vendors.

From strings and picks to tuners and capos, it’s a long journey to find what works for you, and we’d love to accompany you along the way.
