Music Shops in York

Find the best places in York to buy music equipment.

Unfortunately, good quality pianos don’t come cheap, making it important that you buy from a well-respected piano shop.

We’ve complied a list of good piano shops in York, all of which are established due to their reasonable prices, great customer service and friendly staff. Buy from one of these shops and you can’t go too far wrong.

The PianoMan

The PianoMan is an award winning piano specialist shop that sells everything a piano enthusiast could want. Uprights, grands, electrics…you name it, he’s got it! The Piano Man himself, Mark Crossland, has over 25 years of experience selling pianos so he’s got a great wealth of skill when selling the right piano to the right customer. The out-of-town showroom is a particular plus because this allows you to try out a wide variety of pianos and get a good feel for key-weight and action before you commit to buying. The Piano Man is located within a short driving distance of York centre at 168-170 Easterly Road, Leeds, LS8 3AD so there really is no excuse not to take a look if you want to buy a new piano.

Red Cow Music

Red Cow Music really does have the best name for a music shop ever. We’re not sure why or how the sop acquired this name, but what we do know is that they know all there is to know about musical instruments. It’s strictly a folk-instrument shop, but if you’re looking to branch out from playing just the pianos, this might be the shop to spark your imagination. They sell a good variety of squeezeboxes and accordions, which don’t take too much readjustment for a piano player because they are ultimately a keyboard based instrument.

Banks Music Room

Established in 1756, Banks Musicroom is the oldest music shop in Britain. They offer a wide range of products across three floors including gifts, sheet music, accessories and instruments. From drum sticks and strings to electric guitars and digital pianos, they have everything the budding and expert musician could possibly need. You can find them at 18 Lendal, York YO1 8AU.

MOR Music

Located at Franklins Yd, 8 Fossgate, York YO1 9TN. MOR Music is an all round store that stocks a wide range of everything from sheet music to guitars and amplifiers. They are known for having really helpful staff as well so if you are looking for your first keyboard or guitar, be sure to ask them for advice.
