Red Dog Music Shop in Edinburgh

Red Dog Music is the capital’s largest general music store, with over 5,000 square feet of guitars, digital pianos, synths, recording equipment, electronic drum kits, PA equipment and loads more.

Whether you’re looking to buy guitars, buy recording equipment, buy digital pianos, or buy electronic drum kits, we stock all of the big brands and loads of the small ones, have private demo rooms with mirrors for practising guitar moves, synths wired up and ready to squeal, murals on the walls, and an extremely comfortable sofa if you get bored of all the musical equipment and just want to sit down.

The store is slap bang in the middle of Edinburgh at No. 1 Grassmarket (the castle end, on the corner of Kings Stables Road).

Walking to us from Waverley Station takes about 10 minutes or, if you’re driving, there’s an NCP car park just around the corner on King’s Stables Road.

If you prefer to be driven than to drive, the number 2 bus stops nearby, and local taxis simply love driving into the centre of Edinburgh.

Dawsons Music

Dawsons Music was established in 1898 in Cheshire, England, making it the oldest retailer of musical instruments in the UK. Through this time we've learnt a thing or two about what musicians want and are proud to say we are a company run by musicians, for musicians.

There are currently 6 Dawsons Music Stores, which stock a wide selection of musical instruments, including acoustic and electric guitars, amps & effects pedals, pianos & keyboards, drums & percussion, PA, DJ & home recording equipment.

The Dawsons Music teams are all musicians, many of whom have had professional careers as musicians, and still gig on a semi-professional basis. Their friends in the music industry reads like a who’s who of the world of music, which would be cool if it wasn’t uncool to say that!
