Modern Music Since 1948

The history of Modern Music runs all the way back to 1948 when the father of our current owner, John Pyszka, first opened the store in the west side of Chicago. Modern Music moved to the DuPage County area in the late 1970's and now resides in our current location in the welcoming town of Lisle, IL. Stop by our "mom and pop" store and check out the great selection of gear from top brands including, Marshall, Ibanez, Washburn Zildjian, Seagull, Yorkville Sound, Shure, AKG, Tama, Evans and much more.

Modern Music is a retail musical instrument store located in the west suburbs of Chicago. We buy, sell, trade and offer consignments on new & used Guitars, Amplifiers, Loudspeakers, Mixers, Brass and Woodwind Instruments. Our other services included Lessons, Instrument, Amplifier and Pro Audio Repairs as well as our infamous Rental department in which we supply Musicians, D.J's Sound Companies and Party's with Sound Systems, Instruments and Percussion. Modern Music is and will forever be an independant shop full of professional musicians, teachers and engineers. Our staff dedicates a lot of our personal time outside the shop to playing and evaluating equipment in the real world. Sometimes one on us is performing right down the street, a couple of employees are often on tour and sometimes even on other continents! With all of our well knowledged employees being performers, teachers and engineers you can assure that we know that the stuff we're selling is up to our high standards. Our website is here to help you find the gear you need as well as let people know when we find a product that just knocks our socks off. Always feel free to contact us today with any questions about equipment, lesson schedules, rentals and/or repairs.
