PMT Leeds’ philosophy takes music retail back to basics, so they've got all the essentials like accessories, cases, guitar strings, stands and cables covered too, with a huge range to choose from.

Leeds has been home to many a prominent artist, and the likes of Soft Cell, Kaiser Chiefs and The Sunshine Underground have formed and originated from the city.
