Ben Robson

Assistant Manager at Manchester

Ben Robson, a PMT Expert

What do you in your role at PMT?
My main role is to look after the staff at PMT, and I’m lucky that they’re well-behaved! You’ll usually see me running round the store – it’s pretty non-stop in PMT Manchester but it’s a great place to be.

What else do you do in the shop?
Apart from keeping an eye on the staff my other main priority is making sure you get what you need – and if it’s guitars you’re after I am more than happy to help!

Tell us about your personal guitar collection?
I own six electric guitars, my favourites being my Fender Custom Jazzmaster and Masterbuild Esquire. I also own the world’s biggest pedal board, so if you’re after any FX pedals or understanding how to get the sounds you want, I’m your main man!

What's your favourite brand of guitar fx pedals?
I love my vintage pedals but I’m also partial to guitar effects from Electro-Harmonix, Voodoo Labs and I’m really into the BOSS RC300 Loop Station at the minute too... is it really that obvious that I used to be a techno DJ?!
