Welcome to Macari's Musical Instruments

Macari's Musical Instruments, est 1958 by brothers Larry and Joe Macari, is the longest running, and most well respected musical instrument retailer in Central London.

Currently run by Joe's son Anthony and Larry's son Steve, the cousins have taken Macari's from strength to strength.

Today Macari's can be found in two location, the flagship store at 92-94 Charing Cross Road ( CLICK TO TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE CHANRING CROSS ROAD SHOP )  and also  25 Denmark Street ( CLICK TO TAKE A VIRTUAL TOUR OF THE DENMARK ST SHOP ) . This marks a long awaited return to Tin Pan Alley 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, from plectra to theremins.

Of course Macaris is also the home of Sola Sound; our sister company producing 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!) stsores and provide expert knowledge of all things musical. It is the perfect place for beginners and professionals to seek our advice and to search for the musical instrument of their dreams!
