Meet The Perfect Travel Companion

  We're glad to say that we're now stockists of the Martin Backpacker. It's the niftiest, lightweight, travel guitar around! Perfect around the campfire, the student digs or the back of the car. It comes with a Martin guitar strap and a nice padded gigbag big enough for all your accessories and rubbish.

Also recently added to the Instruments page you'll find a Mystery Russian Mandolin, an Epiphone S-Series from about 1990 and this wicked-looking, hand-built lap steel from local hero, Pete Towers.

And don't forget, kids: we always have a bunch of stuff that never makes it to the website as it's sold before we've had a chance to take a photo of it! So, come and see us Sunday, Monday or Tuesday on Cambridge market.

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!
