Jingle Compo Update

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

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!
