We carry a large range of mouth-blown instruments.

We are justifiably renowned for our percussion knowledge. If it is struck, scraped, shaken, stroked or slapped, we can source it. We supply from all major manufacturers such as LP, Meinl, Natal, Toca etc. but also pride ourselves on our ability to source top quality instruments from other genres. Examples include a broad range of hand-crafted West African djembes, bougarabou and balafons, Indian tabla, Egyptian darabuka, Turkish dumbek and a vast range of samba supplies. Our range of hand percussion such as bells, shakers and guiros is huge and we have a large selection of effects and great musical items starting from under £1.
Apart from our renowned koras we maintain a small but varied stock of unusual stringed instruments designed and made by our proprietor Les Sherwood. These are becoming the first choice for professional players due to their legendary tonal quality and reliability.
We also stock, make or can source nyatiti, n’goni, gimbre, harp zithers, saz, sitar, tambura, rhebab, berimbau, gopichand, cavaquinho and ukelele, to name but a few.
