Reasons to visit PMT Cardiff
Professional Music Technology is the 12th music store in the UK’s largest, award-winning musical instrument shop chain, and our first ever PMT music shop in Wales.
PMT Cardiff is unlike any other music shop. All 5,000 square feet of our newest PMT store is a true House of Rock filled with the latest guitars, bass guitars, amplifiers, drums, studio and recording equipment, PA systems and DJ gear. Plus, we plan to host plenty of special events, deals, free music lessons and live music performances from endorsed artists to bring the PMT spirit to South Wales.
There are also plenty of special features in our Cardiff music shop, including a Fender and Gibson guitar wall, an acoustic guitar room, an acoustically-treated guitar booth and an underground drum cave. Plus, we also stock plenty of second-hand instruments, offer part exchange services and can even help you learn to play the guitar too.
The Best Guitar Shop
We know we’ll fit right in to the Cardiff’s rock-heavy music scene with our Fender and Gibson electric guitar and bass walls! From stunning Stratocasters to awesome Les Pauls, to 7-stringed Ibanez guitars to beautiful limited-edition PRS guitars, there’s plenty of stringed goodness for you to check out with the help of the Guitar Experts at PMT Cardiff. And if you’re looking for a super-charged sound for your guitar, we have all the latest guitar pedals available too from Strymon, TC Electronic, Electro-Harmonix, BOSS, Jim Dunlop, Wampler and Hotone, plus plenty of amplifiers from Marshall Amps, Orange Amps, Ashdown, Blackstar, Mesa Boogie and many more.

Drum Shop Cardiff
PMT Cardiff is a very special PMT store, not just because it’s our first ever Welsh PMT shop, but also because it contains our very first underground drum shop too.
