Sounds Great Music is closing down


The MIA are sad to inform you that family run business, Sounds Great Music, established in 1977, is closing down due to Chairman Phil Lyon retiring. Here are some thoughts from Phil…

I write to inform you, with some regret and sadness, that after 43 years I am retiring from our family music business Sounds Great. I have enjoyed the four decades of working in the store but at 83 years of age it’s time to move on to something new. I am starting to find the going a little tough so I have decided to wind-up the business by the 1st January 2020. We of course will be having a sale so watch out for further updates on our website

I would like to thank all my customers who have supported Sounds Great over the years, my fantastic staff (past and present) and regards to fellow members of the music trade and last but not least the reps and their distributors who have looked after us for so many years.

Kind regards to you all,
Phil Lyon

P.S. Not a sales pitch but a customer suggestion, would someone like to take the sounds great reputation on? (no charge for goodwill)! Contact
