Foulds Guitars

Foulds is a name you can trust.

Foulds Guitars has a rich heritage in instrument retail. In 1893 Charles Foulds opened his first shop in Chapel Bar, Nottingham. In 1908 he opened a store on Irongate.

In 2018 James Foulds announced he intended to retire, it was decided that the Guitar department, under the leadership of the new Manager Jason Marshall, supported by Victoria Foulds, would relocate to the current premises on the Strand Arcade, Derby, just 300 yards from the old Irongate shop.

You can be sure of great service and aftercare from a team of specialists who are dedicated to meeting your guitar and music related needs.

From all the staff and team, We welcome you to our new guitar shop, and we look forward to being of service to you.

What People Say?

Excellent customer service with no job too difficult.

Very reasonably priced and Jason went the extra mile to get my guitar done on time and even cleaned it up for me. It was like a new guitar after its new scratch-plate and strings.

Foulds Guitars will look after you and their customer service will be hard to be beaten. Thanks again

So much choice & such a great team to help you choose just the right guitar . The repair shop did an excellent job on my mandolin. No task too small or fiddly.

Dear Customers,

As of 10am on the 16th June we will be re-opening following closure by the government in respect to Covid-19.

We have deep cleaned and changed the layout to make navigating the store easier.

We will be working with Covid-19 safe restrictions in place and expect all customers to adhere to the new regulations, which include hand sanitising on entry, keeping safe a distance from other customers and staff and we respectfully ask that instruments are not handled unless approved by a member of staff.

Please be aware our opening times will be 10am - 3pm whilst we find our new normal.

We would like to ask if you are interested in trying an instrument to get in touch, via phone, messenger or e mail to book an appointment, this way we can assure you a safe and relaxed experience in the shop.

Thank you for your support through this difficult time, we hope we can continue to serve the musical community in Derby and beyond for many years to come.

The Foulds Guitars Team.
