Welcome to the new Look Rainbow Music Store.
We aim to make your visit to us, online or in the flesh; enjoyable and easy. We’d love to see you walk through the door to try our immense collection of Gibson’s finest guitars or our amazing Marshall amplifiers to play them through.
Not a guitarist? No problem! Our range of Yamaha digital pianos and keyboards is second to none in Cumbria. We understand that not everybody can come to Carlisle to get hands on with our store
Full of musical instruments and accessories. Our new website makes it easy for you to get the musical instrument you’ve set your heart on, from anywhere in the UK or beyond!
Guitarists! Have you spent the last few months dreaming about a new Les Paul Standard... maybe that 2014 model with its Min-ETune system? It’s set up to keep you sounding sweet all the way through the evening. We’ve got a couple of these modern classics in a stunning blue, Ocean Water Perimeter finish! These guitars take the iconic Les Paul tradition and marry it to a Triple A figured Maple top for beauty and add in some fresh electronics to take the tone of this pedigree guitar to even more exotic places than ever before. You know you want one! And that’s only the tip of our Gibson collection!
If you’re not quite ready for those classics, then come and try our huge range of Epiphone guitars. We guarantee you’ll be amazed by the range that’s available in the store and online. From the antique natural Wildkat to the rich sounds of the groundbreaking Casinos we have a guitar to suit your pocket, your skill and quite possibly – your ambition!
Don’t stop at guitars! Our stock of Marshall amplifiers (and our Blackstar, Fender and Orange amplifiers) gives you a range of options, to tailor the sound and output to almost any musical interest or genre. We even have a selection of valve driven 1962 style Bluesbreaker Combos that are close cousins of the amp that Eric Clapton used on his legendary 1966 “Beano” album with John Mayall and band.
From keyboards to digital pianos; guitar strings to drum kits: music books to tutorial videos; we’ve got everything for the musician at Rainbow Music! We are the friendliest small music business; both on the street and online. Our aim is to see you happy; whether you’ve bought a simple plectrum or a top flight Gibson guitar! Come in and see what takes your fancy!
