Bonners has opened its fantastic new guitar, piano and keyboard store in Hampden Park.

The move to a bigger, more relaxed setting away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre comes as Eastbourne’s best music store celebrates 45 years of trading.

Bonners’ new location is 9 Faraday Close, BN22 9BH – halfway between B&Q and Aldi, and easy to reach by car, bicycle, bus or train.

It boasts a large FREE customer car park to make sure every visit to Bonners is stress-free for drivers, with plenty of parking bays right outside its front door.

Alternatively, Hampden Park station is just a short walk away for customers travelling by train.

The new Bonners store has dedicated, individual guitar and piano/keyboard showrooms with more instruments than ever before on display, all set up and ready to try.

Customers can experience a huge range of guitars from brands including Gibson, Fender, Epiphone, Ibanez, Martin, PRS, Gretsch and more.

There are acoustic pianos, digital pianos and keyboards from Yamaha, Kawai, Feurich, Roland, Hammond Nord, Casio and Korg. This gives the opportunity to compare models from all the major manufacturers to ensure people are making the right purchasing decision.

Bonners is a Martin Guitars ‘Heritage Centre’ – boasting a room full of Martin acoustic guitars. It also has a guitar & amp test booth where guitarists can crank up the volume, or just have somewhere to quietly make an informed decision about their next purchase!

The store’s on-site guitar workshop and repair centre can handle anything from a basic re-string to more in-depth electronic repairs and pickup replacement.

Bonners is open Monday to Saturday from 10am – 5pm.

Pop by and say hello – the Bonners team would love to see you!

Bonners is part of Eastbourne’s history (this section in side column or small box)

Bonners was started as a small shop in Ivy Terrace in 1976 by musician Peter Bonner, who was a resident act at the Kings Country Club working alongside famous names such as Neil Diamond, Tom Jones and Dusty Springfield.

The popularity of Bonners meant more space was soon needed and it moved to a larger space next door, followed by a second shop in Grove Road in the 1980s.

Over the years, Bonners has gone from strength to strength with a further move to Langney Road in 2005 to accommodate the ever-expanding business.

Owners Tony White and Myke Edwards have both proudly worked at Bonners for more than three decades and took over the business in 2000.

Along with their experienced and helpful team, they have a reputation for giving first-class services whether they are using their specialist knowledge to assist existing customers or welcoming new visitors who want to try out instruments.
