Welcome to Cranes

Cranes Musical Instruments is a family run music store, founded in 1851 originally as a piano specialist. The business expanded into most musical instruments, before homing its focus on guitars and associated products in the Cardiff store. In our Swansea store, you will still find pianos as well as general musical instruments, including guitars and amplification.


We were the first UK dealer to import Gibson Custom Shop and are still proudly their only authorised dealer in Wales. We also deal with many other manufacturers and offer an extensive and breath-taking collection of Guitars, Amplifiers, Effects pedals and Folk instruments.


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. We always have a good selection of vintage amplification and effects processors.
