About Us


Rockbox is a full line Rock and Roll store, established down CentralArcade in the market town of Northallerton in North Yorkshire in 1995. We've been serving musicians across North Yorkshire, the North East and beyond for nearly twenty years now! We recently moved our "rock n' roll" lines downstairs allowing for a larger stock of these products. While the classical section moved to join the other acoustic instrumentation upstairs. We cater to musicians of all abilities from absolute beginners all the way through to the seasoned, gigging professional. Our staff are all experienced musicians themselves and so they're fully aware of how personal an experience finding the right instrument can be. We firmly believe that buying a new piece of gear, no matter how big or small - whether it's a Fender American Deluxe Strat or simply a new set of strings - should be an enjoyable experience. You won't find any high pressure sales tactics here!

If the worst happens and your gear needs fixing, bring it along! We offer a full repair service for instruments, amps, mics and more so you won't be out of action for long!

It's not just musical instruments we sell either! Whether it's a PA system for your venue/church/business, Smoke machines, lighting rigs, recording equipment, hearing protection - we can help out!

So come say hi to Iain, Richard and Dan and try out your next instrument in our little Box of Rock (we'll even let you play Stairway to Heaven)!
