We are close to the city centre opposite John Lewis and there are plenty of car parks near by with the nearest car parking located behind the shop off Lady Lane.


The new larger Hobgoblin branch in Leeds opened in 2010 and is right in Leeds city centre.

As well as the full Hobgoblin range of Guitars, Mandolins, Banjos, Free Reed and other instruments, we have an extended range of percussion and a good range of both tutor books and songbooks for various instruments.

We also have a specialist violin department (The Leeds Violin Shop) with a large range of violins, violas and cellos from the student instruments and upwards.

There are plenty of car parks near by.

Musical instrument repairs

We do repairs! We carry out some instrument repair work on site, and can also send instruments to specialist repairers for more complicated work. Repair work undertaken includes ukulele, bouzouki, mandolin and guitar setups and restringing, accordion, melodeon and concertina tuning and repairs, woodwind and brass repairs and maintenance, specialist violin set ups and repairs, bridge and peg fitting, bow rehairs, banjo or drum skin replacement, and much more besides – contact us for information or bring in your instrument for a free, no-obligation quote.

We buy instruments

If you’re looking to sell a musical instrument then get in touch to see what we can offer you. We buy some instruments outright if the price is right, and we’ll consider a trade-in for almost any instrument. We also take lots of instruments on a commission basis, and we’re particularly keen to stock instruments by local luthiers and makers. Bring in your unwanted guitars, ukuleles, banjos, concertinas, melodeons, accordions, flutes, woodwind and brass instruments, violins, keyboards and more, and we’ll see what we can do for you! If your instrument is bulky or you would need to travel a fair way to get to us, please do contact us by email or phone first so we can let you know whether it’s worth bringing in.
