Our History

GigGear was established back in the 1980s with a small shop in the market town of Hertford. As the company grew, a new larger store was needed and in November 2006 we opened our current Musical Instrument Superstore in Harlow, Essex. The move gave us the space we needed to house our busy music tuition school, guitar and instrument workshop and of couse lots more of the gear you love!

Fast forward to 2019 and we completed our move to our new, even bigger store. Spread over two floors with bigger, better tuition rooms, workshop, demo space and more. Come in and say hello!
