I decided to turn my hobby, and first love, into a business after being made redundant from my job in IT during the recession of 1993. I had extensive experience in the music industry: as a musician, technical journalist and freelance sound engineer, but no experience of running a business.
We now sell musical instruments, amplification and accessories. We also offer a comprehensive repair and setup service. We run a sound equipment rental & consultancy department, and we have recently started offering in-store tuition.
"Try to see solutions, not problems."

I’ve learned a lot over the years: that I wasn’t as clever as I thought I was, and that it was harder running my own business than I thought it would be.
However, I’ve learned from every mistake I’ve made.
