Sound Affects Music, the story so far….

Sound Affects Music, the story so far….

Sound Affects Music was established in 2008 based in Ormskirk, Lancashire. Beginning as a small music store serving local musicians, Sound Affects has expanded to become one of the leading specialist guitar retailers in the UK. In early 2014 we moved to a purpose designed premier showroom in Ormskirk and launched our vision of what a cool guitar store should be. Sound Affects Premier has dedicated showrooms for our PRS Collection, a 50s style diner for our Fender guitars and a Cavern inspired room to showcase our collections of Hofner, Rickenbackers and Gretsches.

Due to the ongoing success of Sound Affects Premier in Ormskirk we were presented with an exciting opportunity to expand our offering to North Liverpool in November 2016. As a company who started by serving local musicians we saw this as a chance to offer customers of Liverpool something a little different. With a lot of hard work we opened the doors of Sound Affects Music Liverpool in November 2016; an old school rock n roll store, stocking a wide selection of guitars, amplifiers, arums, DJ equipment, keyboards & pianos and so much more!

Alongside Sound Affects Premier in Ormskirk and Sound Affects Music in Liverpool we also have an online store called The Music Outlet which offers big savings on ex display/end of line items. This has proved extremely popular for us as it is another outlet for us to offer real bargains on selected stock…… who doesn’t love a bargain!

As a company who doesn’t like to stand still, and will always consider what local customers need, we are proud to announce that we are expanding our store in North Liverpool with even more to offer than before. From Saturday 9th September we will be opening the doors (well, internal door) to our expanded store which will be home to a custom guitar repair shack, four purpose built lesson rooms, a section dedicated to the ex display/end of line items plus further guitars, drums, folk instruments and more.

With our expansion we will be a one stop shop for musical equipment, tuition and guitar repairs/setups/restrings all under one roof. This is an exciting time for us at Sound Affects Music; we are really excited to offer such a diverse range of services to our loyal customers and look forward to welcoming new customers when the doors (well, internal door) opens.

To celebrate the opening of our expansion we will have offers across the weekend plus a learn to play day on Sunday 10th September. This will give anyone, regardless of skill level, the opportunity to sample a FREE 20 minute lesson with one our of fully qualified tutors to see what we have to offer.


If you are interested in having a taster lesson at our Liverpool store then keep Sunday 10th September free. 

We will be offering 20 minute lessons for free all day!

If you are interested please contact our store and we will get you booked in
