Who are we?

The Minor Chord Music Outfitters is an independent family-owned music store in Littleton, Massachusetts serving local musicians since 1984 with instruments, lessons, sheet music, accessories and repairs. We work hard to earn your business by providing great instruments, great service and great prices. You will not find high-pressure sales tactics here. Our store personnel are not on commission, so they are ready to help you choose the right instrument to fit your ability and playing style.

Where are we?

We've recently moved to our new location at 80 King Street (MA Route 2A) about half a mile west of Exit 30 on Interstate 495. We are right across the street from St. Anne's church and close to Littleton High School and Indian Hill Music Center.

About our prices

Customers often think they have to pay extra at an independent music store - but not so!

Our prices are competitive with online and chain retailers, especially when you remember that our instruments come with gig bags or cases - essential to protect your investment and often extra-cost items at the other stores. We also set up and adjust each instrument carefully before we sell it so you know it will play its best.

What do we do?

We stock over 100 different models of acoustic guitars, electric guitars, electric basses, banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, and digital pianos from respected manufacturers including G&L, Ibanez, KORG, Martin, Paul Reed Smith, Savannah, Taylor, David Webber and Yamaha. We stock the area's largest selection of Meinl hand percussion. We sell quality, affordable student band instruments and can handle adjustments and most repairs in our own workshop. We offer a broad selection of sheet music covering everything from rock to classics, including the area's largest stock of instrumental method books. We carry an extensive selection of reeds, strings for most fretted and orchestral string instruments, instrument maintenance supplies, student and professional mutes for brasswinds, and other instrument accessories.

In the Minor Chord studios, college and conservatory educated instrumental teachers offer lessons on acoustic and electric guitar, upright and electric bass, piano, trumpet, trombone, euphonium, tuba, flute, clarinet, saxophone, violin, and banjo.

For beginning students, rental guitars and basses can sometimes be hard to find. The Minor Chord rents acoustic and electric guitars, electric basses, and practice amplifiers to help you get started without having to make a major investment in an instrument. When you are ready to take that step, we credit your rental payments towards your instrument purchase.

We want to make The Minor Chord the choice in the Boston Metro West area for musicians like you. If you have any questions, or if we can help you in any way, please come by the store, call us at 1-978-486-0112, or click here to email your request.
