Win A Monster Metal Rig!


It's officially Festival Season! One for the calendar for all metal fans last weekend no doubt will have been Download Festival where this year Slipknot, Ramstein, Iron Maiden, Queens Of The Stone Age (and not to mention PMT Birmingham's own Bovine) graced the stage. If you've had enough of being in knee-deep mud in the middle of a field, why not take a trip to your PMT store to get some expert advice on how to recreate the sounds of your metal idols in the comfort of your own home. To Celebrate the start of the festival season we're giving you the chance to win a Monster Metal Rig! Here's what you can win:
