Reasons to visit PMT Southend
The PMT Southend music shop was the first shop Professional Music Technology ever opened. Established in 1991, the humble music shop supplied musical instruments throughout the Southend area including Westcliff, Harlow, Chelmsford, Southend, Basildon, and Thurrock making it Essex’s favourite music shop.
Since then, PMT has been providing the same high level of customer service and competitive low prices that have helped make us much more than your average guitar shop. Don't take our word for it though - just ask Wilko Johnson, Chris Coleman, Aaron Spears, Kerry King and the hundreds of customers who have called into this store for the past two decades.
Essex’s Favourite Guitar Shop
If you're shopping for guitars in Essex, then our Southend guitar shop should be your first port of call. PMT Southend is not only an Authorised Gibson store, but it is also a Premium Fender Showcase Dealer too. This allows us access to limited edition guitars, special guitar deals and gives us the biggest allocation of electric and acoustic guitars in the UK.
Our selection of electric guitars isn't just for the contemporary guitarist though. PRS, Jackson and Ibanez guitars feature highly in store and our selection of extended range guitars will have more than enough for the average 7 and 8-string players too. Our choice and selection of guitars is vast and makes us the number one guitar shop in Essex; but don't worry if you're not sure of what you're looking for, because our friendly PMT Experts are always on-hand to help you find the right instrument or equipment for you.
On-site guitar set ups are available for new and old guitars, plus guitar repairs are also available, should the unimaginable happen! We believe our guitar experts are some of the best in the business, so if you have a problem or just need advice feel free to pop in store and chat to our PMT Experts.
In most music shops, you tend to find that the drum department is just a few drum kits and cymbals shoved in the corner of the room. Not ours! The PMT House of Drums in Southend has it's own floor, filled to the ceiling full of electronic and acoustic kits, cymbals and accessories. With knowledgeable staff, the largest range for equipment and the best prices you really need to come down and see it to believe it!
Southend's night life is bustling, and if you dream of DJing in Talk night club or dropping the beat in Mayhem, you're going to need to learn the skills. Our selection of DJ equipment is vast and we can help build your set up right from the start.
So what's your preference: traditional vinyl DJ, mix with CDJs, jam with Serato or do you just want to produce the next EDM floor filler? We've got the lot at PMT Southend!
