Went in with a friend for new wheels, bearings and grip tape for their board. The guy who served us was really cool, took us through everything and explained without being patronising or trying to upsell. Can recommend if you're looking for a skateshop without the macho/snobby BS.
I recently checked out Sound Central during my first visit to Montreal. I noticed a few records that caught my eye on the discogs page so I had an idea of what kinda stuff was thereThere's lots of residential area around the shop so finding parking wasn't too bad. Shawn the owner was super welcoming, personable, funny, and helpful. He's been apart of the Montreal music scene for many years and has lots of cool stories.The shop is organized well and has mix of used and new vinyl. He definitely has more used selection which is just what I'm into. He also carries some cassettes and CDs. Lots of genes too poke through, but I spent more time on the punk, hardcore, and alternative bins. The inside of the shop is also cool with lots of posters, flyers, and other stuff adorning the walls and ceiling.The prices were very fair and condition of everything I was interested in was good. Shawn even hooked me up with a tape from his 90's punk band Blood Sausage. I'm so glad I stopped here and would recommend checking this shop out!
Small place, but with great character. The gentleman who worked there, you could tell he loved what he was doing but respected your space and your interest in searching through his collection. A lot of random old stuff you can find there. Also, metal and punk records. I loved the selection and the variety abd obscurity provided in this shop. Homey and authentic. I would def check it out if you're looking for things you won't find anywhere else. Also, inexpensive.
If you're willing to check out the pulse of the Montreal's underground music scene this is a place not to miss. They mainly carry punk, hardcore and metal stuff, by no doubt one of the best selections in MTL amongst this styles. There are many collector items well exhibited in the walls of the shop, both new and second hand. Other genres also have their space, so is worth to pay a visit to this place even though if you are not a devoted metalhead or a furious hardcore kid... you won't get dissapointed. Honestly, it's difficult to get out of this lovely shop hands empty and in the unlikely case you do not find anything matching your music taste you can always relax and take a coffee mug with their awesome staff, which is by far the most friendly and talkative int the city. A must for any music collector raiding the streets of Montreal.

Vinyl selection is smaller than last year, but the prices are quite decent, and the staff is always excellent. And I always appreciate a listening station. 👍
