Our customers come from all over the world and include famous musicians; some of the extensive stock is available for you to browse when you visit Glasgow.

A few less common items are listed in the on-line catalogue. We aim to have as much as possible of the standard repertoire for all instruments available in the shop at bargain prices.

We are always looking for collections of rare and out of print music, particularly the items listed on the ‘Wants’ page.

If you have music you no longer require please let us know.

These pages also include information about the early music ensemble Banquet of Musick and instrument hire and tuning.

Shop location

The main shop is in Glasgow about a mile west of George Square and close to the University and Kelvin Art Gallery and Museum. Albamusick now manages the music section of 'Edinburgh Books', West Port Edinburgh which is near the Usher Hall.
