Personal History

Shop History

The owner, Clive Noble grew up playing in local bands spanning music from The Shadows and The Beatles to Led Zeppelin and everything else in between. He constantly gained knowledge though personally supporting large acts and used this knowledge to form a general music business.

Clive is also a fully trained electronics engineer, a vocation which allows him to be able to deal with the design, repair and installation of most things electrical and electronic with the emphasis on sound and lighting.


A family company evolving in 1962, selling all electrical goods from radios, televisions, washing machines and fridges to musical equipment. We were first based in the Cardiff suburb of Llanishen.

Moving in entirety to Cathays, Cardiff in 1987, concentrating on all aspects of music: guitars, amps, drums, keyboards, recording equipment, sound and lighting plus inductive loop systems for pubs, clubs and places of worship.

A final move to our current location came in 1997. This premises has free parking facilities and is situated in a vibrant village close to M4 junction 32.
