Cranes is a family run music store, originally founded in 1851 originally as a piano specialist. We pride ourselves on customer service and our attention to detail and in our flagship Swansea store you will find an extensive and breath-taking collection of guitars, amplifiers, effects pedals and folk instruments...
We were the first UK dealer to import Gibson Custom Shop and while we deal with a huge range of manufacturers, our vintage and pre-owned 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.
Cranes has been a great pit stop for many a touring and local musician over the years, from The Stereophonics to the Manic Street Preachers, Motörhead and Slipknot to Michael Angelo and Arctic Monkeys.
If you are new to music we will do our best to help you succeed by offering a well set up instrument alongside friendly, clear and helpful advice from experienced staff. We also offer a free first lesson in our highly acclaimed in-store music school.
We specialise in some of the highest quality products in the country, from the sale of the guitar to its maintenance in our fully equipped workshop, undertaking service and repair for professionals and hobbyist players alike.
Customer service is paramount at Cranes. We are constantly striving to ensure that we meet and exceed your expectations. Since 1851, we have worked in conjunction with the best manufacturers and suppliers.
Above all else, we want you to succeed and develop with your instrument and to have total satisfaction with the quality and tone of what we sell to you.
