Basingstoke Music Shop

The town of Basingstoke is, perhaps, better known for roundabouts than jazz turnarounds. This market town is home to a thriving music scene however. Local venues host musical events that span the full musical spectrum, from Rock, and Pop, to Jazz and Electronica. The town is also home to more traditional musical groups, from orchestras to brass bands. At the heart of all this activity is Dawsons Basingstoke. Our Basingstoke store is located at the site of the old Modern Music store within the Festival Place shopping complex. Open every day, the store strives to supply everything a musician may need.


A wide selection of electric guitars, amps and effects is always available. Dawsons is one of the UK’s leading Gibson dealers, and our Basingstoke store is always well furnished with their instruments, along with a wide selection of Epiphone guitars. Alongside these, the store has a wide array of guitars from Fender, Ibanez, Gretsch and more. For those who prefer the guitar in its acoustic form, the store has models for all budgets, with guitars from Gibson, Epiphone, Yamaha and Farida.

Recording & DJ Equipment

If you are aiming to record your ideas or performances, whether it is for a simple demo or a full album recording, Dawsons Basingstoke has a selection of hi-tech and recording equipment, from audio interfaces, controller keyboards and software, to monitor speakers, microphones, portastudios, and just about anything else you may need to preserve your work at the highest quality.

Pianos & Keyboards
