Our Service

At Modern Music we believe that when a customer first tries an instrument, it should feel and play to its optimum potential. Because of this, every Instrument and Drum Kit we have for sale at Modern Music has been fully checked over and adjusted if needed, insuring our customers always have the best first impression from their chosen instrument. We also offer a free complete guitar set up with any Guitar purchased from us, this is so we insure the instrument can be adjusted to suit all styles and preferences. This free set up lasts within the twelve-month warranty period from the date the Guitar is purchased. Every Drum Kit is also fully assembled and expertly tuned at no extra charge by Dave who runs our Drum Department. We also test every item of electronic equipment in store, to guarantee they are in good working order. All customers are able view or demo any item in store before purchase.

Our new Modern Music Online Shop allows our customers to view a large selection of our current products and special deals, which are now available to purchase online via Card Payments or PayPal. There is a Free Store Collection option which is a major advantage for our local customers, or other delivery options are also available. It has a simple layout with separate categories for our customers to easily find what they are looking for, with all the necessary information included. It can be found here.
