Gear4music: "Huge selection of musical instruments & equipment" York Shopping Tip by DrPeterson

York Shopping: 46 reviews and 63 photos


A large showroom with everything from electric guitars to drums, strings and even an on site recording booth. Especially interesting if you're looking for pop/rock band instruments.

The one problem is that the warehouse is off site, but during the week anything that's in stock can be picked up and the warehouse is only round the corner.

The main guitar shop has a huge selection of guitars including Fender and Gibson, as well as many amps to play through.

The store is open 6 days a week - although Saturdays are shorter opening hours. I think they shut around 5.30pm in the week.

What to buy: Hard to say really. i went to buy a new guitar and have been back to try out studio monitors but they have so much stuff available it's hard to say!

What to pay: Anything from 0.50 upto 5000!

Address: Great North Way York Business Park, YO26 6RB
Directions: Go onto the ring road and onto the trading estate behind the Wetherby Whaler fish and chip shop!

There is a good cycle ride up by the river.
