Billy Bowman Music is a general music store established for over 25 years.

We speak to Store Manager Janet Osborne about the importance of flexible payment options.

“Some people can’t afford the best so it’s very important that we can offer the Take it away scheme"

Billy Bowman Music Ltd has been established for more than 25 years. They are one of the most respected music businesses in Cumbria with friendly knowledgeable staff.  Their long-established shop is the natural centre for music-making in the area and has one of the largest selections of musical instruments and accessories in the County.

As well as selling pianos, guitars, drums, etc, Billy Bowman Music offers more unusual and specialist musical equipment. These include folk instruments, African and Indian Drums, Bongos, Congos, Balalaika, Mandolas and more…

These instruments are available on a “try before you buy scheme” which alleviates some of the anxiety of buying. Music shop manager, Janet Osborne, recognises that buying a musical instrument can be a financial commitment and customers need flexibility. She says “being able to offer Take it away is brilliant. We also try to match the internet prices, which nowadays you have to”.

Their 5-star reviews make many references to the outstanding customer service and huge range of stock.

And it’s not just the customers that are loyal. Janet says “We’ve just had a member of staff leave after 25 years and the amazing thing is the guy he replaced all those years ago, has come back and replaced him – we can’t be too bad to work for!”
