Traditional Scottish Music Shop - Scayles Music, Edinburgh, Scotland.
Welcome the the Scayles Music website. We are a traditional music shop based in Edinburgh, Scotland. We buy and sell a huge selection of different musical instruments and accessories, from the usual instruments everyone knows and loves like Guitars and Mandolins to the weird and wonderfully exotic one such as UDUs and Dulcimers.
We pride ourselves on having the best range of traditional musical instruments in Edinburgh, and for some instruments the whole of Scotland! We have an extensive range of Mandolins, Mandolas, Bouzoukis, Banjos, Traditional Folk Whistles and Flutes in our Edinburgh store. Whether it's traditional Scottish Folk Music or Irish session tunes we are pretty much guaranteed to have the instruments you need.
Scayles isn't just a 'Guitar Shop' - we have the largest range of different musical instruments in town. We try and keep a decent range of instruments in every different section of the shop - from more inexpensive beginners instruments through to professional models in the upper price ranges. Our friendly staff are always at hand to help with guiding you through the differences between the instruments to help you find what is best for you. None of our staff are on commission, and we will never try to sell you things we feel you don't need. If we feel you don't need to buy anything at all we will happily tell you! Our job is firstly to advise and help rather than just try to sell products. This is what we feel is the benefit of still having traditional style music shops - customers can visit the shop, try the instruments and receive constructive advise, rather than just having everything available online.
If you can't find what you are looking for why not get in touch and we'll see what we can do.
