PMT Northampton: what do users think?
Helen Wilson
Helen Wilson: Great service and advice thank you.
Gbolahan Adeola
Gbolahan Adeola: Easy parking area to pick up purchases
David Monks
David Monks: Most friendly and helpful service.
Kelvin Crick
Kelvin Crick: I had idea about buying but for my gig.. I knew what I was after and Tom was fantastic at helping me find the right phone stand, mic stand. He didn't try to rip me off and showed me all options. He was extremely helpful and I'll certainly be coming back!100% Recommend!!!!
Steve Paul
Steve Paul: Great place although they did not have what I wanted in store they went the extra mile to source it from another store and called me to let me know. I was served by a nice young lady but everyone is friendly and helpful there. Recommend this shop to anyone.
Toby Smith
Toby Smith: BEWARE BUYING IN-STORE AT PMT. I’ve bought many things from PMT in the past and had no issues.However, I bought a Laney pedal from here a month ago. When I tried it at home, it was clear that it had a noise flaw, making it in-useable and in my opinion, faulty.I took it back 3 days later in the same condition with everything in-tact and proof of the fault, only to learn from the staff that PMT NO LONGER GIVES REFUNDS FOR PRODUCTS BOUGHT IN-STORE. This was not made clear at the time of purchase or before hand.The staff I spoke to in person were all very friendly and couldn’t have done more for me that day and I feel for them because they probably will get an endless amount of grief about cases like this due to the powers at be who made the current returns policy. However, everybody but 1 that I’ve spoken to on the phone there since that day have been unhelpful and don’t appear to want to get this solved. I’ve got this solved through my credit card company a month later, but this is a great example of poor service and I see no reason why anyone should shop at PMT when this is what happens.
Charlie Wood
Charlie Wood: I shop at PMT primarily for electric and acoustic guitar things. About 50/50 on-line / instore.If you can get to the store in person go, because music shops are always worth a look round. My nearest PMT is Nottingham, this was my first visit to the Northampton store the staff there were great the shop had plenty of stock of everything that PMT sell.One thing to watch out if you are driving to the store. I did not get a parking ticket but sitting in my car for 20 mins, I could see the parking wardens are very active and unforgiving!PMT will let you park in there staff car park if you are picking up a heavy or bulky item.Getting to the store by car is easy as the store is just off the main route into Northampton.
Paul Tilley
Paul Tilley: The best music store around . Staff are extremely helpful not only with sales but with advice, knowledge and general tips and tricks of the trade . Why shop online when the guys at PMT Northampton offer so much more than just a purchase receipt.
Mick Parfrement
Mick Parfrement: Helpful friendly music shop. Nice range of guitars. 😁😁😁😁😁
Kim Parfrement
Kim Parfrement: Very friendly and helpful staff
Edward Norman
Edward Norman: I didn't have the best first experience at PMT but Geoff fully changed that. He went above and beyond to help me out. Extremely welcoming and helpful. I left with what I was looking for and will definitely go back. I highly recommend you ask for Geoff if you need any help or advice. Overall a proper decent guy!
Steve Nicholas
Steve Nicholas: Massive stock of guitars, which are my interest.Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable people too.
seun tunbi
seun tunbi: Great selection of gear to choose from
G Galloway.
G Galloway.: Bought new amp and bits and it's great shop they have plenty of everything in there.
Lola H
Lola H: Unfriendly, 'snotty', unhelpful staff! Had to deal with a total minimum wage jobsworth today. She was sarcastic and we left empty handed and decided to shop online for what we required instead. Found what we wanted cheaper too! Not my first disappointing experience at this Northampton shop, so definitely won't be returning. As a music student who has to purchase often, they should be more mindful regarding customer service and how they speak to their customers in the future! I was FORCED to give the shop at least one star to post my comment! But basically if given the choice, PMT Northampton would get zero stars. Nothing!
Gawain Simons
Gawain Simons: Utter rubbish, checked stock online for that store.. And traveled there expecting to try and buy a number of items... And I would have spent quite a bit.... I wasted time and fuel because none of what I wanted is actually in store... Just beginners kit and very little else.. I was made to feel like it was my fault for not checking online.. Don't waste your time.. Go somewhere that values you and your custom
Paul Vincent Dwyer
Paul Vincent Dwyer: This store deserves every local musician's support. Wonderful friendly and knowledgeable staff offering great advice and support. Backed up with a good selection of stock very competitively priced. You couldn't wish for more. 100% recommended
Graham Bignell
Graham Bignell: I took my 10 year old in, who had overnight developed an overwhelming desire to play guitar and become a rock god.The staff were so kind and helpful and set him up in a room to try a couple of guitars.There was no shortage of good advice for both my son and I (as holder of the purse strings).I brought him his first guitar and he loves it to bits.The experience was so good, it will be my first stop for future purchases.Thanks a million Greg (if I remember rightly).
Dm Dm
Dm Dm: Went to get my bass guitar and amp today on the 20-1-23 absolutely over the moon with what i purchased and got money off my bass and amp so definitely 5 stars from me and will be going back in the next few months to get a mpc .
Brendan Rigby
Brendan Rigby: Top Music Store
Jake Reed
Jake Reed: The Staff couldn't be any more friendly or helpful with anything you ask or are interested in, it's a genuine pleasure to be there

Easy ordering, and it arrived the very next day!

They worked with my budget and exceeded my expectations. Highly recommend!!

Altizm Official
Altizm Official: Positive:Communication,Professionalism,Quality,ValueA very knowledgeable and professional guitar teacher. I would highly recommend him.
Jaime O'Beirne
Jaime O'Beirne: Really enjoying piano lessons with Marek. I’m a total beginner at age 37, Marek is setting the perfect pace of lessons, it feels like we are always progressing every week but it’s fun as well as challenging. Highly recommended.
Ela Domagala
Ela Domagala: Thanks to Marek my daughter just passed her grade 2 exam :) He is a brilliant teacher and he has a very good contact with kids. He is always so well prepared and organised, and my daughter loves her guitar lessons. Highly recommending!
Jason Chandler
Jason Chandler: My daughter has been having lessons with Marek for a number of years now and absolutely loves it. She is gradually going through the guitar grade exams and so far has passed all the exams shes done to date first time achieving high marks, and this is in part down to the teaching that Marek provides. He offers a friendly and welcoming environment for my daughter to learn in and he also takes the time to get to know his students on a personal level, which I believe helps build a strong bond between tutor and student allowing the student to flourish. Marek is a top bloke and I couldn't recommend him enough.If your looking to take up guitar lessons no matter what level your at, then Marek is the man to help you achieve your goals. Happy strumming.
Inapurpleworld: I have been learning with Marek for about 3 months now. He is very good and patient and explains the technical stuff very well. Right now I am working towards my level 3 and will master it in no time because of him.
Idris Lewis
Idris Lewis: Marek has been excellent, teaching both my children guitar. He has a relaxed demeanour, his passion for music is evident and finds fun ways for younger children to engage. They look forward to every lesson and are keen to practice and that I think is at least half the battle.
I B: Versatile And talented multi-instrumentalist, a professional teacher I would recommend to everyone
