About Hobgoblin Music in Leeds

The new larger Hobgoblin branch in Leeds opened in 2010 and is right in Leeds city centre, in a shop previously occupied by Knock on Wood.

As well as an extended range of percussion, you can find the full Hobgoblin range in a bigger and better show room! We also sell recorders, early instruments, amplifiers and much more. We have a big acoustic Guitar department in Leeds, with Yamaha again being featured prominently.

We also have a specialist violin department (The Leeds Violin Shop) manned by repairer and restorer Philip Harrison.

There are plenty of car parks near by.
