Terry - The Boss!

Having 40 years of experience, Terry is like a musical database- very useful to customers with requirements on modern and vintage technology alike!


With Steve's experience and knowledge, he can guide you through the maze of instruments and technology.


The other boss! With the The Boss himself, Bruce Springsteen!


Is into home recording and guitars...rock on! Can be found at parties falling over and demonstrating non-existent chords.


Matt (Aka Clint)
He once was lost, but now he's found... One of the favourites out of the much lusted after 'Saturday Boyz'. A reet good lad who unforgivably buggered off to Lincoln, however has now returned on the basis of 'not being able to hack it'.


A shrine to employees past.
The token staff member! The last of the lusted 'Saturday Boyz' WORD!
Unfortunately, Matt left to pursue a career as a rock & roll star... and a book shop bum!

The Bearded One' of the Saturday Boyz who could normally be found in store at around 3pm fled the country in pursuit of Tom Hanks who stole his beloved tweed coat for his role in The Da Vinci Code. Has recently surfaced after being
donated to an Edwardian museum.

Rob has exploded from stress after being taken on by Freestyle Distribution and seeing the state of their stock room.

Rob's claims that he joined Iron Maiden held true after being spotted yielding a 'Glass Ibanez' by Steve Harris and Bruce Dickinson, who both decided that this was sufficiently "kickass". Can usually be found on a revolving tour of the UK, sometimes playing as far away as Edwinstowe.
