Mann’s is one of the oldest music shops in Great Britain, and possibly the world, under the same ownership.
It’s currently run by Tim Mann, the great great grandson of the founder. They moved to their current location in 1891 and have been there ever since. They retailed the first iron framed pianos before the first world war for less than half the cost of a modern day tuning!
Experience & Knowledge
Over the last 160 years we have retailed virtually all musical products from Wireless Sets and Gramophones before the first world war for around 10 guineas, vertical and overstrung pianos for between 30 and 40 guineas in the twenties, Pathescope home cinema movie cameras in the fifties for £6.15.
We now sell over 15,000 stock lines, from reeds and strings, to brass and woodwind, a huge stock of printed music, both electric and acoustic guitars and electronic and acoustic pianos. Indeed it could be said there are few music shops in the UK with such a large and diverse stock.
