About Hobgoblin Music in Canterbury

   Location Map

Hobgoblin Music in Canterbury, Kent opened in October 2010. The shop moved into a premises previously occupied by Musicland - the keyboard and rock'n'roll superstore. The shop is unusual for a Hobgoblin shop in that it continues to stock keyboards, drums and electric guitars, with expert salespeople on hand to advise on these instruments. In addition, Hobgoblin's huge range of celtic and traditional instruments makes this shop one of the most all-inclusive in the UK.

The new shop is home to our Yamaha Keynote Centre with a big range of new and used Keyboards, Organs and Digital Pianos.

"Can't improve on perfection. It's a veritable Aladdin's Cave of music...ALL kinds of music."
