Still Open

We are still open!

Despite being in Tier 3, the Gov.uk rules state that we can remain open even though we are classed as a non-essential shop.

This means that you can still shop in person. Although due to the size of the showroom we ask you call in advance so we can ensure you have it to yourself.

And, of course, you can shop 24/7/365 via our web shop. Simply follow the link and select the category you wish to shop; instruments, amps, accessories (including pickups, strings, cases, stands, nail kits, and joint care), and giftware (ranging from cards to candles, to lapel/bag pins, bookmarks and key rings, to jewellery for him and her to socks, ceramics, and sculptures). And it’s not too late to get some extra Christmas decorations!

Neo Jacks

You’ll have seen the term neo-jack when reading our piece on our new non-invasive pickup for Selmer and Maccaferri gypsy guitars.

As they are a feature of all our new Schatten Design pickups we thought we’d better explain what a neo-jack is.

A neo-jack utilises the existing fittings on the instrument – for example the tailpiece fitting on a gypsy, resonator, and archtop guitar, violin, viola, bouzouki, or mandolin – to attach the jack; therefore avoiding the need to drill a hole in the instrument.

It is straightforward to fit and is completely non-invasive. It can be removed and replaced as needed for those not wanting visible jacks when doing an acoustic performance.
