Ukulele Shops – Guildford Music

Situated on Stoke Road, between The Tup and the top of North Street, this small shop is where Alberts Music used to be.  As the name implies, they sell more than ukuleles with a small stock of electric and acoustic guitars, song books and some amplification and effects devices as well (some new, some used).

But, they do have a reasonably large selection of ukes and at least one of the staff can play them as well.  Amongst their stock when I visited recently was a lovely 8 string (Monica has one, must get her to gig with it soon) and a more unusual 6 string (same 4 strings as a soprano, but two of them doubled).  They have a good selection of Eddy Fin ukes as well, they have a beautiful tone.  They also sell accessories: cases, tuners, chord books, plectrums).

A number of us have recommended Guilford Music and I haven’t heard that anyone’s been disappointed with the place.  It’s well worth a visit.
