Music Shops in Belfast

So you've been to the gigs, you've seen Belfast's most famous exports. Now you want to follow in their footsteps and play on those stages. Here is Singing Lessons Belfast's rundown of the best music stores in your city, sure to stock the best range of equipment and instruments.

Belfast Music is located at Unit 24, Hanwood Business Park, Kings Road, Dundonald, Co.Down BT16 1DE and claim that they are the number one choice for all musical needs. The selection and range on offer here certainly justify this proclamation, as everything from pianos to guitars and drums to accessories is available. The staff are all musicians themselves, so will know exactly what's best for you, and how to get the most out of your new instrument, while the store is the main dealer of the acclaimed Tanglewood brand of guitars, and a Northern Ireland main dealer of Roland and Boss products. With an even larger selection of products within this large number of categories, the store should be one of your first choices when purchasing an instrument, at least to get a feel for what's out there. The store participates in the Take it Away scheme, in which you can buy a product, and then pay for it in interest-free instalments if money is an issue. The store offers much more than can be described in words, so if you are looking for a new piece of equipment, any kind, check out Belfast Music.

Matchetts Music has three different stores in Belfast city centre, a piano shop, a classical shop and a rock shop, each catering to a different set of needs with bespoke stocks guaranteed to satisfy your desires. Matchetts is a family business established in 1936 so they can boast a wealth of instrument retail experience in order to advise you on your purchases. A wide range of guitars can be found in the store as well as instruments more geared towards folk musicians, as well as full orchestral instruments. You would be hard-pressed to find something that Matchetts do not stock, so browse their website if you are thinking about spending some hard-earned cash. Don't forget though, the physical stores often stock equipment not listed on the website, and it's always a good idea to try out the instrument physically to get a feel for it. The website does, however, feature a classifieds section to browse for pre-loved items, as well as an instrument rental service, if you need that perfect guitar for just one gig. If rock music is your thing, head to 38 Wellington Place, or if you dig sheet music, or acoustic or classical instruments, head a little down the road to 6 Wellington Place.

Dawsons Music is a chain of stores, with a Belfast location at 121-125 Royal Avenue, BT1 1EF. In this location, it is surrounded by recent developments made possible by the Arts Council investments. This puts Dawsons centrally between the city's new and interesting musical events. Head to this area, and Dawsons if you are in any way musically inclined to be in for a treat. As for their store, the main draws are the selection of guitars, pianos and drums, all you could want, really. However, not only this but Dawsons includes lots of recording equipment in order to fulfil your bedroom-recording needs without forking out for studio time. If electronic music is more your thing, a wide range of MIDI controllers and keyboards are at your disposal, and a special clearance section enables you to see the best deals on B-stocks and used items. The Take it Away scheme is also available at Dawsons, so you can spread your payments over a long period of time. Before expanding to their twelve current locations, Dawsons was established in 1898, specialising in pianos. Such a long-serving store is sure to be trustworthy in giving you nothing but the best service.
