Hillsound Musical Instruments

Music is at the heart of the community with Hillsound - a family-run musical emporium nestled in Hampton Hill. Musical instrument sales - new and pre-owned - repairs and tuition

As Richmond upon Thames leading music shop, Hillsound is where you will find a high quality wide range of musical instruments - both new and pre-owned - an outstanding repair service, accessories and musical tuition.

Founder Leonard Lamprell, a designer and repairer of instruments says with his humorous lilt - “Music for us is a life, it’s what we do. We get as much satisfaction guiding a parent about their child’s first instrument as we do helping a top professional who really knows his game”.

Musical instruments you can Rent-to-Buy

'Rent to Buy' lets you try a good quality instrument before making the decision to buy.

This lets you experience for yourself how a good quality instrument feels and plays and spread the cost  over 24 months.

It's a fail-safe way to try out a good quality instrument you think you will love (rather than being tempted into buying a cheap, inferior alternative just to try it out) - and benefit from free maintenance during the rental period too.  More details on our website.
