Rogue Music was born in 1983. It began as an attempt to sell a Prophet 5 by keyboardist Dick Michaels of the New York City band Rogue. The keyboard was difficult to sell for cash, but easy to trade for a tape deck, guitar, and bass.Well, the bass came in handy, but not the guitar and tape deck. Once again a trade was made, and so on, and so on, until today, we believe we sell more used gear than any single store in the world.
As our business has grown trends have come and gone. First it was guitars, then it was keyboards, then analog synths, then vintage studio gear, now it's guitars again.While the emphasis has been on used gear, along the way we have picked up many new lines. For items we don't stock we can usually get you a good price though one of our partner stores.
In order to ensure that our used gear is in tip-top shape, we have a fully authorized service department that checks out everything we buy and makes all necessary repairs. Our repair department is staffed by expert technicians and is authorized by Akai, Kurzweil, Roland, Korg, Yamaha and others.
