"Where Every Musician Feels At Home"

The Music Den is one of the most unique musical instrument destinations in the Tri-State area. We offer a broad representation of retail brands to choose from, an incredibly accomplished School of Music and Performing Arts, a multi-county band and orchestra instrument rental program, the highest quality brass & woodwind repairs, PA system rentals and installation services. The Stage at The Music Den, is a 118 seat performance venue second to none for clinics, master classes, and performances, where we now regularly host honor recitals from New Jersey school system music departments as well as private organizations and teachers. We have over 30 years of experience offering solutions to the surrounding music community in New Jersey, as well as the nationwide internet community.

The Music Den was founded in 1984 by musicians and brothers Jerry & Tom Scognamiglio, with the help of their father. He was an amazing opera singer who fought in World War II, returned home and had a family who later started this very musical instrument store! Remaining a family business has been a major proponent of The Music Den’s success making it a recognized music store that recently became one of NAMM’s Top 100 Dealers nationwide.

The Music Den has and will always take pride in giving customers, educators, and students the best experience they can have using our knowledge to make sure to align the correct product or service to the customers specific needs. Carrying hundreds of brands in every division of our store, we offer a variety of choices for everyone. Our Randolph location and online musical instrument shop offer musicians of all walks of life an impressive selection of New, Used, and Vintage guitars, amps, drums, band & orchestra instruments, digital pianos, keyboards, synthesizers, home recording equipment, PA systems, accompanying accessories and more!
