Birmingham Events

Probably the biggest music shop sale happens in Birmingham every year that’s hosted by PMT Birmingham: Music’s Live. This is the UK’s largest musical instrument clearance where the world’s top brands come to put on workshops, new product launches, hands-on demonstrations and live performances whilst you shop ‘til you drop buying second hand guitars and receive on-off deals on pre-loved and new gear.

Let’s not forget some of the amazing artist events that happen in the stores too on their brilliant live performance stage area! Nathan East, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmstien and Whitesnake have previously performed live in-store and have done signings for everyone who came to the events.

The Best Guitar Shop in the UK

PMT Birmingham is home to the largest guitar wall in Europe, and it’s something you have to see to believe. The wall is so massive it only fits in panoramic shots and has everything from top-of-the-line Fenders and Gibsons to 12-stringed Rickenbackers hung upon it.

In the House of Rock you’ll also find an on-site Guitar Technician and Amp Technician, who’ll repair and service your well-loved gear, and an acoustic department with the best acoustic guitars around! There are guitars and basses for all at PMT Birmingham; for learners, pros and a load of left-handed guitars. So take your pick from a Gretsch, ESP, Ibanez, Yamaha, Taylor, Martin or Jackson – we’ve got the lot.
