Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Homes&garden -

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.

Other ser­vices avail­able in­clude mi­nor brass, wood­wind and gui­tar re­pairs, as well as re­strings and set ups. A range of fi­nance op­tions, world­wide de­liv­ery and in­for­ma­tive and in­spi­ra­tional events and demo ses­sions are also on of­fer.

What­ever you’re look­ing for, step­ping into Banks Mu­si­c­room in York will pro­vide plenty of mu­si­cal in­spi­ra­tion.
