Special Saturday!

  Sometimes we're able to grab an extra weekend spot on Cambridge Market and this Saturday (16th August) is one of those occasions! Hurray!

Come and say hello! Don't fear: we'll still be trading Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, too.

Jingle Competition Update!

The tension is almost unbearable as our 2014 Write A Jingle competition enters its final lap! Our latest entry is from local guitarist, songwriter and genius man Richard Archer. We particularly like its Brian May-style harmony guitar shenanigans.

Don't forget! If you'd like to enter our competition—and try to win yourself a brand new banjo—you have until the end of August! See our 2014 Write A Jingle Competition page for all the details and to listen to all the entries we've received so far!

More Old Things

  We've added a few new guitars to our second-hand page including the Zenta pictured here. Made in Japan in the late sixties: we think it's a cool-looking thing, and it's been recently refretted so it plays great!

We've also got in more of our favourite Octopus ukuleles. We've looked at a bunch of ukes, but these are the best value for money out there. Great build quality, great strings, ten great colours and a great price: only 30! Each uke comes with a soft case. Everyone should have one!

The 2014 Write A Jingle Competition!

Do you want to win a brand new, super-duper banjo?! Then you should enter our jingle competition! You have until the end of August to send us your Imperial Guitars-themed song. We'd really love to hear your work.

At the very least, you should head over to YouTube and check out our own jingle!

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!
