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.

Southend 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 just take our word for it, 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.

With knowledgeable staff, the largest range of equipment and the best prices you really need to come down and see it to believe it!
