Welcome to Icon Music, Melton Mowbray

There are many options when it comes to purchasing musical products in this day and age. But no one can offer the complete buying experience and range of support and services available at your 'Local Music Centre' in Melton Mowbray.


Of course we're all looking for a good price but have you considered the difference between a good price and good value!?


Say you buy from an online store. Have you thought about what happens if...

  • It's damaged or faulty?
  • It's out of stock?
  • It doesn't look or sound how you wanted?
  • It's really hard to play?
  • It needs it to be set up, tuned or adjusted?
  • You changed your mind?

These are all very common scenarios. How many emails or phone calls to different people would it take to sort it out? How many times would you have to return it at your own cost? How much time would that take? How much stress would it cause? How much is that worth?!


Then consider that unlike a mobile phone, instruments are not all identical. There are significant variations in tone, aesthetics and particularly playability between one and the next.


The cornerstone of Icon Music is to provide our local customers with everything they need before and after sale.  We hope you can see the 'value' of buying at your 'Local Music Centre' and what you can get for a few extra pennies.

Customer Service

The single most important core value here at Icon is our customer service. When dealing with our customers in any capacity, we aim to offer a personal and genuine service of the highest standard.


One of our core promises is to ensure that you can choose from a broad selection of quality instruments in your price range. Icon music does not conform to stereotypes. We don't do pressure sales. We have a number of areas on our premises where you can thoroughly try out an instrument in a relaxed environment so that you can carefully consider your options in your own time.

Free Service Plans

One of the great benefits of buying an instrument at Icon is our FREE service plans. All of our new Guitars, Basses and Drums come with either a bronze, silver or gold service plan covering all setup and maintenance charges for 1, 2 and 3 years respectively (parts not included). All our plans also include 1 free service per year.


Another of our key aims is to provide all of our local professionals, hobbyists and beginners with a place to reliably source their consumables and accessories at a reasonable price. Icon Music also runs a loyalty card scheme for strings, sticks and reeds to further reward you for your loyal custom. Plus, if we don't stock what you're looking for we're more than happy to listen to your suggestions.


Our premises have 8 fully equipped teaching areas which we rent to some of the finest professional instrumental tutors in the area. We have the majority of popular instruments covered so if you want to start learning a new instrument, a new style or have some techniques or theory to brush up on, there's almost certainly a teacher who can help. Furthermore, if you buy an instrument from us, we can put you on our priority waiting list to get you started ASAP. We also aim to develop a group tuition scheme for suitable instruments in the near future. 

Rehearsal Space

At the rear of the property there is a fully equipped 'plug and play' rehearsal room. Bands and artists can take advantage of brand new high quality amps, vocal PA and drum kit. Discounts are available to those who wish to use our tuition or rehearsal rooms for individual rehearsals.

Repairs and Servicing

At Icon we have the facility to take care of most repair, maintenance and setup work in house.  However, we are also affiliated with some of the best free-lance repairers in Leicestershire. So for the vast majority of instruments and electrical goods, if it's broken we can get it fixed!

Instrument Rentals & Finance

Sometimes it helps to have a safety net when trying something new, especially when buying for a child.  That's why we have our instrument rental scheme available for many instruments. We aim to remove the risk and offer you the opportunity to try it out at a fraction of the cost. Better still your initial deposit can be deducted from the price of any instrument you choose to buy! We also have a 10 month interest free finance option available through the 'Take it Away scheme'.


As well as many instrument specific items which would make perfect gifts, we also aim to stock a selection of general music gifts for those special occasions.

Printed Music

From exam syllabus music to tutor books, easy plays, DVD's, CD play-alongs, chord songbooks and tab/pvg books of the latest artists, we aim to ensure there's enough printed music for you to browse to your hearts' content.

Goods & Music Special Orders

If there's something in particular you need that we don't have in stock, we'll do our utmost to get it for you quickly and at a competitive price. We use a vast array of suppliers, so if you know what you want, we can normally get it for you. We'll contact you by phone or email when it arrives or if we can't get it, we'll be sure to let you know so you can try elsewhere

Part Exchange/Commission Sales/Second Hand Purchasing

Got something to sell?  We can normally help with that too. We could either make you an offer for it, or we can put it on the wall and sell it on your behalf.  Then when it sells we'll take a commission. Or if you have your eye on something we have in stock, we can also take in instruments as part exchange.

PA Hire

We also have a range of PA equipment for hire to suit the majority of small events.


With our all encompassing portfolio of services, Icon Music is more than just a shop.  We are your 'Local Music Centre'. We also aim to develop a web site where fellow musicians and teachers can discuss music and share advice between one another.

Help and Advice

It doesn't matter if you're looking to buy something or not. We're always happy to see you and welcome anyone who wants to browse, or chat about and share in any aspect of music. We're here to support you in every facet of your musical endeavours. We hope you'll look to support us too so we can continue to do so for years to come.
