Music Shops in Glasgow

No matter how good a singer you are, you will need to amplify that voice, and to do so, you will need equipment. Here is Singing Lessons Glasgow's rundown of the best places to purchase all those essential pieces of kit to get you from the bedroom and into the arena.

Kenny's Music is an instrument store with branches across Scotland, so it is familiar, yet retains the independent vibe that is so crucial. Stocking an incredible amount of gear at very reasonable prices, Kenny's is sure to be your first port of call when looking for that perfect new instrument. The store has one of the largest stocks of Gibson, Epiphone and Fender guitars in the UK, so if you are looking to master those fretboards with some of the most popular and renowned guitars in the business, look no further. Not only this, but Kenny's also houses a huge range of basses, drums, pianos and DJ equipment, so whatever sort of band you are looking to form, all members should take a trip to Kenny's. With a large selection of pre-owned gear to choose from too, there really is no excuse, with this service being an ideal way to get an instrument that has already been worn-in, at a seriously reduced price. The stores are staffed by people who have worked with the eponymous Kenny, and so you are guaranteed a great amount of knowledge from the staff. If you feel like talking about your latest purchase, head to 61 Jamaica Street, G1 4NN. 

Biggars Music Store, established in 1867 is Glasgow's longest-running instrument store, and this is reflected in the sheer variety of stock that is on offer. With all possible types of guitars and orchestral instruments available, where Biggars really shines is in its keys. The pianos are varied and at great prices, and the store is a specialist, so you really know you'll be getting a wealth of experience and help if you are looking for a new set of ivories. A vast range of sheet music is also on offer here, to help you learn your favourite songs, while if you only need that perfect guitar for one gig, and can't afford it just yet, Biggars offers an instrument rental scheme for you to try out that instrument before you commit. This store really does cover all bases, so if you are looking for a general browse, or for something really specific and niche, Biggars most likely stocks it. Head to 273 Sauchiehall Street G2 3HH to check out the enormous selection on offer.

CC Music Shop can be found at 33 Otago Street, Kelvinbridge, G12 8JJ, and stocks almost everything from guitars to drums and accessories. They are self-proclaimed as Scotland's top independent musical instrument retailer, giving you some idea of the class of service and stock CC holds. With a recent addition of stock of Orange amplifiers, the store continuously upgrades its stock, letting you always find something new here. CC appears to be a guitarist's paradise, stocking electrics, acoustics, semi-acoustics, fretless and 5 and 6 string basses, there is a lot to choose from, and a lot to simply try out to get a feel for the types of the instrument out there. If you are more into your folk or are simply a singer-songwriter, there is a range of mandolins, harmonicas and banjos if you see yourself as more Mumford that Marilyn Manson. The website reveals a large stock, but the store itself, open seven days a week is where to head to if you are looking to make that purchase, trying out instruments before you buy is the only way to avoid disappointment, check out CC Music today.

Haydock Music is a music store that describes itself as "specialist", presumably to describe the level of experiential knowledge on offer from the staff: all musicians themselves. Established in 2002, the store is young but not inexperienced, with advice on hand to make sure you make the right decision. Haydock has a limited range of your expected electric guitars but makes up for it with a huge variety of more classical instruments, with you woodwind, string and brass needs being more than catered for. If you are looking for something a little bit different, or you want that crucially unique sound, check out Haydock Music where you can find instruments that are heard much less in popular music today. The store offers a price-match guarantee, along with a try-before-you-buy scheme if you just can't make up your mind. If money is a real issue, there is a good diversity of second-hand instruments too, while the staff are always on hand to advise you on different instruments to find what's best for you. So if you are after some more alternative sounds check out Haydock Music at 5a Stewart Street, Milngavie, G62 6BW.
