International Jazz Day

30 - International Jazz DayIt might be a Bank Holiday here in the UK, when we wouldn’t normally post, but there was no way we were letting International Jazz Day pass without comment.  There are lots of events going on for you to enjoy and you can check out what’s on here.

And if that inspires you to play some jazz don’t forget to check out our wide range of instruments and accessories specifically for the jazz player from our great value, traditionally hand built, Dragonetti double bass to an all time favourite the Be Bop Blonde to the iconic Stimer amps and pickups.

Stimers back in stock

After a short delay, due to unforeseen circumstances, we are delighted to be back to full strength on Stimer pickups.

28 - Dupont back in stockThese iconic pickups are still entirely hand crafted in France and comprises the ST48 for the petite bouche, ST48M for the grande bouche, ST48G for the petite bouche gaucher (grande bouche gaucher is made to order at no extra cost), and the ST51 with the dual pickup system.

To complete the look, and the distinctive sound, why not combine it with the Stimer M12 amp, as seen alongside Django Reinhardt in many of his pictures.  Especially as, thanks to a strong pound, we are able to offer it at a never before low price.  If you don’t need the iconic look of the M12 but still want the authentic gypsy sound  why not try the M12’s little sister – the M6 (also currently at a great low price).  Alternatively, for a slightly jazzier sound you could opt for the versatile Jazz 2; which still has a leather coated exterior and a distinctive retro look.
