Pop in or by appointment

We love that many of you just pop in to see us and that, during opening hours, you don’t need an appointment to try an instrument.

However, if you want to try an instrument we would rather you did make an appointment. This is so that we can check the instrument(s) you’d like to try over in advance. And, especially with the Dupont, Lugnas, and Sanchis Lopez guitars, contact the luthier to get a range in for you to try if we don’t have them in stock.

Also, because not every member of staff is in every day, it means that we can ensure our resident expert is on hand for you to talk to. For example, if you want to talk about Schatten pickups you’d need to talk to Garry.

And, if those aren’t reasons enough, there’s an added bonus to making an appointment, we can guarantee to have some fresh milk, rather than dry creamer, and biscuits in to ensure there’s tea, coffee, and biscuits galore whilst you play at your leisure – what’s not to like.

Remember, if you can’t get to us during the week or during our normal opening hours we will open up evenings and weekends for you (staff availability permitting) by appointment.

Instruments as Christmas Gifts

We know some people use Christmas as a time to buy a loved one an instrument. We’re also acutely aware that instruments are a bit on the difficult side to hide. So, once again, we’re offering a free storage service for all purchased instruments.

Check out our range of instruments hereĀ  not forgetting that Recital can help you get your dream instrument*. Details here.

Contact us for details on storage and collection dates & times.

* Please note that we offer Recital’s services completely free of charge and that we receive no incentive or commission from Recital for so doing.

Watercolour Month

#DidYouKnow July is watercolour month?

Whilst instruments are frequently the subject of watercolour paintings, as with this one by Jenny Armitage, we think the backs of many of our instruments qualify as works of art in themselves. A case in point is the stunning almost purple feathering in the RSC and the seemingly seamless heartwood in the Busato Royale we had in the showroom for a few brief weeks.
