    The best music shop in the North West. Sells musical instruments, accessories and music books. They have a large stock of pianos, keyboards, guitars (electric and acoustic) amps, drums, flutes, saxophones, etc. They also provide music lessons on weekday evenings for the guitar, drums and keyboard. Great friendly knowledgeable staff and excellent service - always happy to help.

We have a great selection of guitars, keyboards (including synths and workstations), digital pianos and saxophones. We also stock PA and Studio Monitors. Our aim is to provide helpful advice and a great service to musicians or would-be musicians. We compete on a national basis so you can rest assured we're competitive on price - we have a number of quality offers in the shop that are cheaper than anywhere on the internet!


Established in 1982.

The original owners of A&C Hamilton was Alan and Carmel who retired in 1989. The business became limited in 2003 and is run by the son , Alan Hamilton.

It's all about offering service and choice at the right money.  The main shop is out of town with forecourt parking. This has the advantage of easy parking and a quiet relaxed atmosphere where you can chat with staff and hear instruments being demonstrated or try them yoursleves.

All members of staff have been with the company for a long time and really know their stuff. Keith is the main guy for synths and hi tech, Stuart for guitars drums and piano and Justin for keyboards and pianos. the business has been around for  long time but is very forward looking with a major expansion in 2008 and more planned for 2010 and 2011
