8th Street Music Center was founded in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1940. Originally, the store was located at 8th and Market Streets (hence our name) until we moved to our previous location at 1023 Arch Street in the mid 1970's. Over the years, we have provided the best brands of musical equipment to the industry’s leading recording studios and artists who helped create and continue to create the music of our times.
Today, we have thousands of products online, and sell new cutting-edge software along with the long-time top brands of musical instruments and Pro-Audio gear.
Dedicated to helping musicians, 8thstreet has always offered the lowest prices, with outstanding and personalized service. Our retail store's slogan has always been, Don't Get Beat, Call 8th Street! This mantra still resonates today with our online customers. We strive to make our customers’ buying experience pleasant and trouble-free. Our goal is to process your orders quickly, efficiently and professionally. From the initial purchase through product delivery, our customer service is second to none.
