Much respect for Dustin @ MoogAudio Toronto for always being incredibly helpful and informative.

Great guys at the Toronto store in general.

Interesting to know Tom Lee on Granville St has modular now in the store.

I've been ordering from Detroit Modular who does free shipping to Canada with USPS and Perfect Circuit who ships for free to the US (I have a mailbox in Point Roberts, WA).

A number of years ago I went to Noisebug, Big City Music and Analogue Haven (Shawn's townhouse). It's cool to be able tor try stuff in person.

No mention of that on Detroit Modular's website. Cool to know.

Long and McQuade is carrying a few brands. Pittsburgh and moog... not sure if anything else. Always a few interesting pieces of kit at the bloor store.

Long and McQuade doesn't list online. I sent them an email and they did not seem to concerned about it. I think they are missing out on some business. Not all of us live in the GTA.
My closest store is 6 1/2 hours away and they don't carry modular.

I work at the Edmonton North L&M. I've been trying to get more modular in store. It's a tricky thing.... if there is enough demand then we can carry in store but Moog sort of dominates the field with boutique stuff. Still..... I'm going to fight to get some stuff set up once Roland releases their powered skiffs. ;)

Totally understand the supply and demand thing. Still would be nice if guys showed it on your webpage to at least order it.
Unless I am just too stupid to find it (might be the case).

A bunch of it is in the local store specials section. There's usually a decent handful of modules and they are well priced too. We should just have a section on our page though. I totally agree.

Found these guys online. Axe and You Shall Receive.

https://www.axeandyoushallreceive.com/

In Brantford ONT. Mostly guitar pedals but some WMD and WMD/SSF stuff.

Website could use some work (like a modular category).

Looks like gearmedia.net is now something different. Any other options in Edmonton? Would like to drop in the next time I visit my folks.

We are in the process of remaking the whole website, and making the current stock information available online is on our list, everything should be done this spring/summer.. we know its causing some issues, but we try to be pretty friendly and will gladly anwser any stock inquiries quickly.

Until then, if you have any questions/regards, or just want to chat a bit, dont be shy to drop me a line at gabriel.petrin@moogaudio.com or PM me through here ;)

Ill be happy to help you out!

cheers
Three years later...

I've actually grown to like not knowing if Moog has it in stock. The order waits make for a pleasant surprise when it finally does ship.

RE: Axe and You Shall Receive, it's easier to browse their stock via their Reverb.com store: https://reverb.com/ca/shop/aaysr

Also didn't see TechnoSynth mentioned in this thread, I've had a good experience ordering from them. http://technosynth.com/en/shop-electron ... struments/

Axe Music in Edmonton is a really cool store, but it's so packed in there I don't think they'd have room to carry modular. All the same I am surprised they don't. L&Ms here on Van Isle don't even know what it is haha!

I listed Technosynth in the other thread (Worldwide Euro dealers), forgot to put them here.

Their shipping costs are a bit silly, but they do have some good stuff.

I was in Tom Lee Vancouver today. Small selection of modular stuff. I played with the Metropolis/Atlantis for about an hour.

Just wanted to chime in and add my name to the list of forumites from Edmonton. Seems like there's a surprising number of us. Last time I was Toronto I went to Moog Music and gawked at everything but didn't know what any of it was. I haven't bought from them in a while, but I take it their online stock system still isn't great? How do you find ordering from Intellijel? I'm leaning toward a lot of their modules anyway, so it makes sense to buy from the source.

As to the post above asking about modular in Edmonton, there's nothing that I'm aware of.

Nothing has changed at Moog via their online stock. Best bet is to email/call and ask if it is in stock.

Would be nice if Intellijel sold their goods in local currency....

Long & McQuade Main Store (107 ave) is now carrying Doepfer and other modules. More on the way. I helped a tiny bit with suggestions for the first order but there are cases and a decent selection of Doepfer modules stocked as of April 2017.

The ultimate danger zone because you can now put modules on your L&M account..

I talked to them about this a couple of years ago. They said because they source most of their parts from the states and sell most of their product in the states it made more sense for them to use the USD. At the time Canadian wigglers represented a fraction of their customer base. I doubt they will change their policy anytime soon.

Those store accounts are way out of line as far as interest charges go. Font do it :mad:

I buy my Doepfer from Martin at Technopolis, the Canadian wholesaler. :party:

I never carry a balance on those accounts.. learned my lesson long ago (the 90's). Still, I know a ton of people who can't resist the buy now / pay later approach.

I also bought from Martin years back. nice chap. always wondered about Technopolis.. do they have a physical store?

You just had to mention that with my financing ending soon, didn't you... And I'm looking at getting back into modular synths, this time with eurorack (because as lovely as MU was, by the gods does it take up a lot of room!)

Good thing downtown isn't in my delivery area, but that reminds me, I should drop in and say hi to the guys at south again, been a while since I've said hi to Kirk, Jason, and of course... Dave. The all powerful, all knowing, awesome guy known as Dave. :P

Obvious question time then.... Is Long&McQuade able to get the black Doepfer stuff in?
