Welcome to Macari's Musical Instruments

Hi there!

Macari's Musical Instruments, established 1958 by brothers Larry and Joe Macari, has been the longest running, and most well respected musical instrument retailer in Central London for over 50 years!

Currently run by Joe's son Anthony and Larry's son Steve, the cousins have taken Macari's from strength to strength. Over the years the store, has been in several different locations between London's world famous Denmark Street (Tin Pan Alley) and Charing Cross Road in the bustling West End.

Today Macari's can be found in two places, our flagship store at 92-94 Charing Cross Road and our more recent store at 25 Denmark Street. This marks a long awaited return to the street for Macari's (originally the first Macaris music store was on Denmark Street!). We are very proud to be the only AUTHORISED Gibson Dealer in the area.

Usually you can find around 50 plus Custom Shop Gibson Les Paul's for you to choose from, plus all the new offerings from Gibson USA and enough Epiphones to (insert suitable cliche here). The Charing Cross branch also stocks a wide range of other types of musical instruments, including Ukulele, Violins, Banjos, etc,

Of course Macaris is also the home of Sola Sound; our sister company which has produced the famous Tone Bender pedal since 1965. Be sure to check out our current range by clicking on the Colorsound tab.

At Macari's our helpful, friendly staff will give you a warm welcome to our (albeit jam-packed!) stores and provide expert knowledge of all things musical. It is the perfect place for every beginner (and professionals) to seek our advice and to search for the musical instrument of their dreams!

Yes, it has happened... You can now buy things from our website! Macaris have been dragged, kicking and screaming into the present day!
