A pitch perfect service and product range for music lovers of all abilities
FROM complete beginners to accomplished musicians and all abilities in between, Banks Musicroom in York is proud to say it has the largest range of instruments, accessories and sheet music in York city centre.
Founded in 1756, and sharing a birthday with Mozart, it is something of a York institution and, over the centuries, generations of musicians have walked through its doors. Situated just 200 yards away from York Minster and on the side of the river Ouse it is easily accessible to locals and visitors alike. This heritage, and a continuing drive for excellence in service and product range, has led Banks Musicroom to become one of the UK’s premier music shops.
At the store the displays across its walls and over the multiple floors are packed with a vast range of instruments, accessories and sheet music, along with all the help and advice you need from the experienced team of 18 music professionals.
A recent addition to the store is its line of Pure Tone guitars, ranging from the small parlour size acoustic guitar to the super jumbo electro guitar. These beautiful solid top guitars offer unrivalled value for money, are suitable for beginners up to the more experienced players and are available in a variety of sizes and styles to suit any playing preference.
In addition, the new Clavinova CLP range by Yamaha has just landed in store and can be seen in the new Yamaha showroom downstairs. The Clavinovas are well known for delivering a concert piano sound in your own home. These join an extensive range of digital pianos and keyboards from Casio, Roland and Yamaha, including the PSR-S series keyboards, Tyros 5 and the unique NU1 hybrid digital piano.
The guitar department lays claim to having the broadest selection of premium brands in the city centre with Taylor, Martin, Gibson, Gretsch and Fender always available, as well as more affordable guitars from Epiphone, Squier, Tanglewood and Puretone. The ever popular Ukuleles start from £20 beginner instruments up to professional level.
The choice of orchestral instruments is also vast with products from the likes of Yamaha, Trevor James, Buffet and Stentor.
In addition to this are cutting-edge digital drum kits, home studio equipment from the likes of Focusrite, and every accessory that a musician could need.
To guide you through the ranges are Banks Musicroom’s team who, between them, have over 100 years of experience to help take you from novice to virtuoso.
