Synth and DJ gear at Red Dog Music in Edinburgh
Treating yourself to a new keyboard – whether it’s your first or your tenth – should always be an exciting experience. If you have a particular synth or keyboard in mind, or just want to browse for a bit of inspiration, why not drop in to Red Dog Music in Edinburgh’s Grassmarket to try some out? We have dedicated, experienced keyboard specialists on-hand every day of the week to answer your questions, give demonstrations and offer friendly advice.
Situated right in the centre of Edinburgh’s old town, we have two levels stocked full of instruments to suit all budgets, with a carefully selected range of over 40 unique analogue synths, digital synths, modules and workstations available to test and compare. We stock all the flagship products from Roland, KORG, Moog, Nord, Novation, Elektron and Arturia, as well as a few other cool, boutique synths from smaller manufacturers.
It’s not just how they sound
We know how useful YouTube videos and audio examples are when you’re trying to find out about new synths, but there’s absolutely nothing like the experience of getting ‘hands on’ in helping you decide if it’s the right thing for you. All our synths are hooked up and ready to play through high performance keyboard amps and monitor speakers, and headphones are available should you want a bit of privacy. Although the sound of a synth is usually its defining feature, there are lots of other lesser factors that can either enhance or diminish the pleasure of playing it. Subtle things like the length of the keys, the tension in the knobs and sliders, the movement in the pads, and the general weight and feel of a synth can have a massive, subconscious effect on your enjoyment of it as an instrument.
Speakers, cables, stands…
At Red Dog Music, we’ve got everything all under one roof. Whether you need a stand to rest your new synth on, a dedicated speaker system for it, or cables to hook it all up, we have it. We also stock accessory bags, keyboard cases a wide selection of professional headphones!
