Welcome to Rainbow Music Online Music Store
We aim to make your visit to us, online or in our store; 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. Perhaps you'd like to pair an Orange amplifier with one of our enormous Epiphone guitar collection... we can do that for you, face to face or online. Why not call us on 01228 537 469 to order Blackstar amps, Martin Guitars or Yamaha keyboards and digital pianos. That's just a taster of the major brands, parts and accessories that we make easy for you!
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. Whether you are looking for a classic instrument like the Gibson Les Paul or something more “toned-down” like an Epiphone Electro Acoustic guitar or the EJ200CE, our new website makes it easy for you to get the musical instrument you’ve set your heart on, from anywhere in the U.K. or beyond!
Guitarists! Have you spent the last few months dreaming about a new Gibson 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! We also carry other top-class iconic models like the Gibson Les Paul Traditional (2014 and other models available) and Gibson Les PaulStandard Plus.
If you’re not quite ready for those classics, then come and try our huge range of Epiphone guitars, including the ever-popular Epiphone EJ-200CE. 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!
