Our shop is open from 9.30am-5.30pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We welcome customers of all ages and abilities and have plenty of space in the shop for trying out instruments in comfort (fuelled by cups of tea or coffee if necessary). Our workshop is contained within the shop on the ground floor which means our restorers are usually on hand to give expert advice, although an appointment is advisable.
If you're coming up from London to see us, Hitchin is just over half an hour from King's Cross by train. For those from further afield, Luton Airport is a fifteen minute taxi ride away. Have a look at Finding Us (above right).
For informed and efficient service from a human being, call us during shop hours on 01462 426012; we are always pleased to talk with our customers (see our feedback page).
We hope to see you in the shop sometime and that you enjoy browsing our site if you haven't done so already. And why not add us to your ‘favourites’ list and recommend us to a friend if you like what you’ve seen!
