Belfast Music Shop

The Belfast music scene has been quietly turning out hugely influential musical acts at an enviable rate since, well… forever. The vibrant city, with its famously industrial past has produced the likes of Van Morrison, David Holmes, The Undertones, Stiff Little Fingers, members of Thin Lizzy, James Galway, Gary Moore, Katie Melua and many others.

Belfast is also the home to the Ulster Symphony Orchestra. The city itself has inspired an astonishing number of songs, with artists from Orbital to James Taylor dedicating tracks to the city. The creative spirit flows freely through the city, and it is at the heart of this that Dawsons Belfast is based.

Our Belfast store is located on Royal Avenue, on the location of the former Marcus Musical Instruments store in the city’s Cathedral Quarter. This part of the city has become the creative hub of Belfast city centre. The area has received sizable investment from the Arts Council, and the majority of the Belfast music and arts festivals take place here. What this means is that just all of the city’s most exciting musical events happen in the immediate vicinity of the store.

This, of course, is entirely intentional. All Dawson music stores aim to serve and support musicians and the musical community, and the Dawsons Belfast shop is at the heart of this, as a musician’s haven, fulfilling all of your musical needs.

Guitar Shop

The Belfast Guitar Shop is simply the guitar store to visit in Belfast. With instruments and equipment spread over four floors, guitarists will find a huge selection of guitars from Gibson, Epiphone, Fender, Ibanez, Farida and more, along with amps and all of the accessories you might need.

Pianos & Keyboards

Keyboard and piano players in Belfast will find their needs equally well served. A wide range of acoustic and digital pianos is stocked, from Yamaha, Roland, Kawai and more. The store is also the only authorised Nord dealer in Northern Ireland.

Buying a piano
Buying a piano is much like buying a house. You have to look around first to find out what exactly you want. By studying what is available both online and in piano shops, auctions, newspaper listings etc, you get a better feel for the kind of the piano you want and how much it is likely to cost. You then visit and try out the pianos. When you buy a house, you get a surveyor to look at it. The surveyor will crush any unrealistic dreams you may have of the house. When you buy a second-hand piano, you get a piano tuner-technician to look at it. A piano is essentially a big box with string in. Unless you are an expert yourself, you won't know what to look for.
You can find many second-pianos for sale on shops websites. Save yourself a trip by asking the right questions via e-mail or by telephone at the piano shop. Has it got a guarantee?
What colour is it?
Is there a photo?
How old is it?
Who were the last owners?
Is there anything wrong with it?
is it tuned up to concert pitch A440?
Who are the makers?
Never buy a piano without trying it out first. It's advisable though not necessary to have a piano technician check it out.
