Lauzon Music was established in 1945 by Larry and Dorothy Lauzon as a family business specializing in piano reconditioning and restoration. During the 50’s, the company expanded their inventory to include new pianos, guitars, amplifiers and electric organs.
In 1974, Lauzon Music entered into its second generation under the direction of Ken Lauzon. The business had grown so much that musical instruments were displayed on two floors in the family owned building on Wellington Street in Ottawa’s west end. Today the store is run by third generation family member Dave Lauzon.
To this day Lauzon Music continues to leave a mark as a destination for high quality instruments and uncompromising service. In 2015 Lauzon Music was appointed the authorized dealership of the world famous Seiler pianos of Germany for the National Capital Region.
From classic piano brands such as Seiler and Knabe, and guitars by Martin, Gibson, and Fender, to modern innovators such as Taylor and Paul Reed Smith, and the finest custom offerings from Fender Custom, Collings, and Suhr, we go out of our way to provide the finest crafted instruments available.
In recent years we have made an effort to carve out a niche in the market by offering the best in boutique amps and effects. Beginning with Fulltone effects and Dr. Z amps in the mid 90s, and continuing to this day with a number of quality names such as Strymon and Friedman, we offer an impressive selection of amps and pedals that you will not find anywhere else in this city, province, or even country.
Service is another pillar of Lauzon Music. Our philosophy is that service does not end when you walk out the door. Our in house technicians are continuously tuning and maintaining our pianos and guitars. We benefit from having a highly trained and experienced technical staff, as well as a world class piano refinishing facility, and full service guitar shop.
We invite you to come to our store where you can play and listen to the instrument of your choice in the privacy of your own individual studio.
