Good morning everybody! Friday's "DEAL OF THE DAY" is this pair of Paiste 2002 Hi-Hats that came in on a part-ex with a drum kit. They are in great condition and are over £250.00 for a new pair.

My 8 year old came in on Sunday for his first guitar lesson with James. At 12.00 he had to be told that he was holding his guitar the wrong way round and at 12.30 he came home to show his Mum he could play Jurassic World!!!! He's full of enthusiasm and cant wait for next week. Thank you.

Friendly local music shop. Knowledgeable staff, always have the bits in that you need. Impressive collection of strings, straps, accessories, and various instruments. I've even had luck buying a Floyd Rose saddle block from here, something you'd usually have to get on eBay.

Just wanted to say Thank you again for the excellent repair you have, just done on my old Peavey bass guitar neck. The bass plays great and the neck is now straight as an arrow, which is my personal preference. A great shop run by wonderful people all the best.

Helpful. Trustworthy. Honest. These 3 words sum up the service and excellence of Booths. Will recommend to one and all.
James 'Edward' Mcpherson
Unfaultable. Always has everything I need in stock and the staff are always willing to assist. From the small things of kazoos and harmonicas to guitar restringing I have been helped with everything. Highly recommendable and a joy to see a local business doing so well.keep up the great work.
Tony Tank Dooley
Took my guitar in for a repair, which is putting it mildly, god knows what had been done to it before it was given to me. New frets, and some serious rehabing later it looks great and sounds great.They even remembered to restring it for a left hander. I honestly though it was a lost cause but they proved me wrong and for less than a cheap replacement would have cost.
Emma Riddiford
Tricky problem with my guitar, but they stuck with it and sorted it. Lovely people too.
Ronan O Callaghan

Although I've only visited twice I'd definitely recommend any music enthusiast to visit. A friendly group of staff who'll happily let you try out any instrument you're interested in as well as their other services listed on their website, just google Booths Music and it'll be the first one. I'll certainly be returning for any future needs.
