For over 100 years, Gamble Music has been a friend to the music community - providing musical supplies and accessories to churches, schools, community orchestras and professional musicians as well as individuals across our great country, via their beloved mail-order catalogs.

Gamble Music started in 1906 at 7 East Van Buren Street in downtown Chicago, and was originally known as "Gamble Hinged Music."  Gamble developed a method of rebinding sheet music with a cloth hinge in the spine to lengthen the life of the music from the wear and tear of turning the pages; this process was called "Gamble-izing."  By 1918 Gamble Music had moved into the McClurg building at 218 South Wabash Avenue, in the heart of  “Music Row.”  Gamble also published music and was famous for “Gamble-izing” all of the music it sold, as well as music scores and sheet music brought in by Chicago musicians. In 1959, Gamble moved into rented space within the famous Carl Fischer Chicago music store at 312 South Wabash. (The Carl Fischer Chicago store was known as one of the largest and best sources of music from publishers worldwide and was a mecca for educators and musicians who came out to browse its four floors of music.)

When Carl Fischer of Chicago closed its doors in 1999, Gamble Music moved a short distance west to Chicago's West Loop neighborhood. After sixteen years in the heart of the West Loop, Gamble Music moved to S. Leavitt Street in 2015. Gamble Music remains a family-owned business, focusing on the best selection of printed music storage options in the music industry.
