Welcome to Cranes

Cranes Musical Instruments is a family run music store, originally founded in 1851 as a piano specialist, where we pride ourselves on customer service and our attention to detail. In our flagship Swansea store, you will find an extensive and breath-taking collection of guitars, amplifiers, effects pedals and folk instruments..


Not only do we stock the newest gear, fresh off the line, but our vintage and second-hand department hosts some of the most exotic and collectable instruments to be seen under one roof. From a vintage Telecaster to discontinued gems, you’ll find obscure pieces from us for sure - from guitars and amplifiers to effects pedals and studio gear.
