GM MUSIC started in Newport, South Wales in 1974 in the newly built Kingsway Centre.
In the early days we mainly sold the more traditional Rock & Roll equipment such as guitars and amps. The experience of Peter Beese was essential in the early days as he already had experience in the business working for British Music Strings and WMI.
The coming years saw expansion in many respects...
With success proven in Newport our Wharton Street store opened in Cardiff in 1984, where operations are still based to this day.
Meanwhile in Newport, our premises were outgrown due to the specialisation in P.A and Drums, and we moved to the more spacious Upper Dock street premises. The company then responded to the needs of our customers by supplying a full range of educational and orchestral instruments. The knowhow in this field comes from Lesley Beese, who originates from a classical background. In March 2012 our Newport store which was based in Upper Dock Street relocated to the Tesco Extra store on Newport Retail Park, Spytty Road - offering a fresh new store with free parking.
GM MUSIC continues to remain a family run business and prides itself on having a wide and varied range of products. We are main dealers with many of the market leaders, thus ensuring the lowest possible prices and availability.
Our staff are knowledgeable, helpful and courteous and are involved in the music scene in their own respective ways.
