New old things, new new things!

  So, we've got a couple of interesting vintage things on the stall including this German archtop—an Otwin Harmony—from sometime around 1959: a bargain at only 159!

You can find it in the revamped instruments section which now includes a selection of brand new things we have in stock including the Ashbury AG-41 (245), which has a solid Engelmann spruce top and flamed mahogany back and sides, and the Blue Moon BG-20 Parlour (99): a great, elegant small-bodied acoustic.

We'll be adding more to the website soon. In the meantime: come down to Cambridge market and have a look!

Jingle Compo Update

With only hours to spare, we received a entry so fresh it had to be recorded live at the stall:

New UK-made Stuff!

We're the happy new stockist of two great products made on these shores!

StumbleCol cigar-box guitars are hand-made in Cambridge by local craftsman and player Colin Merry.

Each instrument is made from a real cigar-box, comes with bone nut and saddle and has two internal piezo pickups: and, unlike many cigar-box guitars you see, they're all fretted! We stock 3-, 4- and 6-string models.

Star Singer ceramic slides are handmade by Dolfinn Ruby Star Singer in Glastonbury. Each is unique, durable, beautiful... and they sound great! The slides are available in a variety of colours and sizes.

You should come and check them out!
