Book your try out

As things are opening up more and more you might wonder why we’re asking you to book a try out time. There are several reasons:
– we can open evenings or weekends to fit around your schedule
– if you are interested in an instrument we do not have in stock it gives us time to contact the luthier to see whether he can send us one
– we can have the guitar(s) you’re interested in ready for your arrival
– we can ensure that you have exclusive use of either the showroom or our new try out room; which ever you prefer
– we can have everything that goes with your instrument at the ready should you choose to purchase it; no waiting around whilst we dig the case out of storage
– and, most importantly, we can ensure we’ve got the biscuits in 🍪🍪🍪

Health and Safety

We’re using the fact that it’s #HealthAndSafety Day to remind you that all pre-Christmas covid-19 safety procedures remain in place.

This means that, unless you have a medical exemption, you must wear a mask at all times whilst you are in The Old Dairy.

We will require you to sanitise your hands on arrival and recommend you also sanitise them as you leave.

If you are trying out and instrument we ask that you book a slot with us in advance. This is for a number of reasons: a) so we can have them ready prior to your arrival, b) so we can ensure we don’t have two people wanting to try the same instrument at the same time, and c) to avoid contact transfer from a prior try out. We will additionally require you to wear a coverall for the same latter reason. We request that you let us hand you the instruments you wish to try. We will use gloves to avoid contact transfer.

Please be aware that, due to the size of the showroom, you may be asked to use our try out / teaching room. You may, of course, opt to use that room by choice if you wish.

If you are interested in any of our accessories – strings, pickups, stands, cases, nail kits, or joint care – we will hand them to you wearing gloves. The same applies to our giftware.
