  • There is that place near the tattoo parlour at the end of the high street but I hear the people in there are jerks! *Soz!*
  • the end of orpinton high street by the tatooist
  • There's quite a nice little guitar-cum-music tech shop on the bottom end of orpington (the end that's not by the war memorial). The guy who owns it can be a bit of an arse towards you if you don't know what you're doing or if you want some advice, but otherwise they do some useful bits - guitar strings, picks etc.
  • malcom tysoe in farnborough? i bought i saxophone there once but gave up. My friend once saw an acoustic guitar in oxfam for 15 - but it didn't have strings.
  • Theres a good music shop at the one way system.......sells a lot of guitars and amp gear.
  • 3 letters: TMT (nuff said)
  • There's one at the end of the high st isn't there?
  • The shop in Farnborough is called Malcolm Tysoe's, and it's an excellent place. I highly recommend it in every possible way.
  • look there is only one and he does guitars and drums only (there is a god!) so if you like other things you have lost.
  • Er...none that I know of..but I guess I've seen one down by the tatoo shop at the end of the highstreet. In farnborough there is a decent shop.
  • Very good violin makers in Farnborough Village, but a bit too specialised. Could do with more general sheet music, variety of instruments etc. However - if strings are your thing - excellent!
  • Check out the new shop near the Carlton Parade end of the high street. nice guitars, extortionate prices and a bloke who reminds us of everything that was bad about hair metal
  • Check out the new musical instrument shop on the one-way system in Orpington. Amazing range of guitars and they do lessons.
  • Can't remember the name of it, but there's a serious instrument shop in Farnborough Village, about 10 mins away by car, easy parking. Sheet music, instruments, and deeply knowledgeable staff.
  • Hmm... Not sure... Don't think so. We always end up having to go to Bromley for that :)
  • might be something small down the end of the high street? Sam Goodys does guitar strings.
