Sonus Magus supply an essential service and aim to remain open. This should be possible, if we follow current advice and government guidelines on maintaining social distancing. Staff will be in the workshop repairing guitars with the door locked. Customers can still get advice, make purchases and book repairs by calling the shop to request access. Access to the shop will be limited to one customer at a time. One customer means the person making a purchase and does not mean your entire entourage. You will need to know roughly what you want (for example “strings for a guitar") and staff will be happy to help you decide on specifics. Children can be accompanied by an adult. You can bring your dog in. The shop will not be open for people to browse or chat!

Over the past few day, staff have done what they can to turn the shop into a safe environment. Instruments in the shop are regularly cleaned. Please keep your hands to yourself and ask before touching anything. Even if you feel well, staff have to clean instruments that you try out, before putting them back on display, to protect future customers. Hand washing is available with fresh water, soap and clean paper towels should you require them. Please aim to keep social contact with staff to a minimum and keep a safe distance. Because nobody in the UK has been tested, there is no real guarantee of a 100% coronavirus free shop. If you are unwell or you are afraid of becoming unwell, please stay outside the shop. Please help others or let us know about anyone who needs help. Staying alive and safe is fairly simple it's just very different to what you've been used to. Follow advice. Your conspiracy theories are welcome if they’re funny! Humour is essential.

If you want detailed advice, please make an appointment before coming in. You may be asked to pay the current hourly rate in advance. Staff are trained to help the customer find the best solution, regardless of who they end up making their purchase with. Sonus Magus are loyal to local craftsmen, have a great deal of respect for competition and will always recommend another company if they can offer a better solution. At this present time this service can't be offered as a free friendly chat. Please be respectful of the fact staff are generally unable to be as attentive as usual.

If you are ill or self-isolating, you can still get our help via FaceBook Messenger, FaceTime, Skype or WhatsApp. Services can be delivered locally, even if you are ill. Orders are in from Rotosund and Stagg so there's loads of new audio cables and strings for all sorts of instruments. Agreements with suppliers allow us to drop ship direct to your home, currently giving you access to stuff that’s no longer available on Amazon, as they cut back their services to meet demand.

Please make payment by contactless or card where possible. Second hand instruments cannot be purchased at this time. Trade-ins will be considered. Valuation will be lower, based on photographs and take much longer. Returns can no longer be accepted. All sales are final. You can pay for anything from our expertise to a truck full of instruments via Bank transfer, Credit Card, Invoice, or PayPal.

Community guitars and ukuleles are being cleaned regularly and are available on request.

All instruments are supplied at your own risk.

Please continue to be safe and well.
