Rimmers Music Bury Store

Situated on Broad Street is our Bury store, formally known by the name of its previous owners: Read, Franklin & Heywood. Brought into the Rimmers Music family in 2011, Bury store was first established in 1865 in it's previous location on what is now known as The Rock. 

Much of the stores life was spent as a piano specialist, both making their own branded upright acoustic pianos whilst also repairing pianos from various piano manufacturers.

Whilst specialising in Piano tuning & Repairs, the store also used to sell gramophone records whilst also selling and repairing gramophones. For those of you under a certain age, these were an early type of vinyl player which themselves came long before Cd's or iTunes. There's even an old gramaphone record on display in the store (Pictured).

These days we still repair all sorts of pianos as well as guitars, amplifiers & woodwind instruments with our in store technician. Having our very own on-site piano technician also means we have the ability to tune, repair and renovate any piano to an extremely high standard.  But whilst the days of Gramophone have been and gone, enjoyment of music is still core to what Rimmers Music offers!

Bringing the store right up to the 21st century, our Bury branch has recently introduced a new fledgling Home Recording department. This features all the latest equipment from Focusrite, Novation, KRK which are compatible with the synths & midi controllers we have to offer from the likes of KORG and Yamaha.

We've not completely given up on the more traditional however, as our Bury branch hosts a wide range of guitars and amps from the likes Fender, Gretsch, Ibanez and most recently Sigma with both acoustic and electric guitars for all styles ready try in store. The same can also be said for the keyed instruments we stock, with a great range of digital pianos and keyboards from leading brands such as Yamaha and Casio.
