Dedicated to bringing

you high-quality, rare, vintage
instruments.

With a huge and constantly updated selection of vintage synthesizers, guitars, drum machines, guitar pedals, and much more. You’re guaranteed to find something you’ll love.

Who we are:

Rare Birds started back in 2017 out of desire to bring the “musical instrument underdogs” up from damp basements, down from cobwebbed attics, out from under garage tarps and band room closets where they are then dusted off, fixed up and put back into the hands of creative musicians. We encourage sonic exploration at our shop and hope you’ll come get weird with us with these true musical oddities.
