We have been around since the early days of modern music making, and we have grown together along with the music industry. Through the experience accumulated, we have evolved from dealing in traditional acoustic instruments to modern state-of-the-art hi-tech musical instruments and equipment. If you are looking for electronic and digital musical solutions of the latest technology, we are the specialists for you.
Life was pretty much simple then but we already saw the necessity to move out of traditional concepts of musical instruments, and bring in new ideas and technology to music making. The marriage of innovative ideas and cutting-edge technology is the key to the future of musical instruments and equipment. Music technology has opened up a whole new world of sonic possibilities and versatility without having to blow a big hole in your pocket
Our first digital revolution in musical gear was the introduction of multi-effects processors for guitarists and bassists in the early 90s’ from leading Japanese technology innovator, Zoom. Guitarists’ dreams of having tonal versatility and variety is finally materialised with affordability.
At about the same time, we brought in another music technology giant from Japan, Korg, which offers a wide range of unique and powerful products ranging from keyboards, digital pianos, guitar effects processors, digital recorders, DJ equipment, tuners & metronomes and a whole lot more.
Together with Korg, came along its subsidiary division focusing on guitar products, Vox Amplification, a unique blend of British heritage with a history of over 50 years with cutting edge technology from Korg’s R&D.
Around the late 90s’, we raised the bar of the guitar market by introducing another innovator in guitar technology from the USA, Line 6, a pioneer in modeling technology offering new sonic possibilities in recording, amplification and signal processing for guitarists and bassists.
Around the same period, we moved into the Professional Audio market, offering high performance sounds systems yet at affordable value from Wharfedale Pro, a very established British speaker manufacturer with over 75 years of experience in the Hi-Fi market.
We have not forgotten the roots of traditional musical instruments, especially acoustic guitars. We are proud to be the official distributor for C.F. Martin Guitars, the oldest, most respected and most innovative guitar manufacturer in American history.
Plug in to the original round back Ovation Guitars, the first company in the world to have a pickup in an acoustic guitar. Under the same parent company of Ovation guitars, we also introduced another American electric and bass guitar maker, Hamer Guitars that offers exceptional build quality without the huge price tags.
Of course we did not forget about beginner guitarists. After searching around for many year, we finally found a network of reliable OEM (original equipment manufacturer) guitar companies from Asia that build truly affordable guitars and of exceptional quality. Have a go at our in-house branded Custom Acoustic solid top guitars and Craftsman electric and bass guitars.
After focusing so much on the guitarists, we definitely do not want to leave out the bassists. We saw the market opportunity for professional bass amplification systems at affordable value and thus brought in Hartke from the USA. The products speak for themselves.
We realised the need to cater to the boutique market of guitar amplification and thus introduced Bogner Amplification from the USA which offers high end full-valve guitar amps in a totally modern approach.
Later, we were really lucky to chance upon another unique American company that offers premium casing for guitarists, bassists, and drummers. Reunion Blues cases offer exceptional protection for your precious and valued instruments, with clever functional design and truly durable.
Recently, we were proud to continue to push boundaries and remain at the forefront of musical instrument and pro-audio equipment distribution by adding a range of innovative and unique brands to our stable, with the likes of G&L Guitars, Mackie, GHS Strings, MusicNomad Equipment Care and Michael Kelly Guitars.
Our passion for excellence and commitment to offering high quality musical instruments at great value has attracted many repeat and new customers. Customer service and satisfaction is also our top priority whereby we place heavy emphasis on after sales support. Our customers pay good money for our products and we feel that it doesn’t make sense if they could not make full use of the products and get the most out of it.
