London's Iconic Music Store 

Windows On The World

Posted on July 21, 2014

There are very few brands that last a century.

When Stanley and Leslie Rose partnered up with Victor Morris back in 1920, post-war London was an uphill venture for the young entrepreneurs. Who could predict that a few young men peddling mouth-organs to the local Cockney contingent would germinate into one of the UK's biggest names in music retail employing generations of staff and introducing some of the most legendary brands in the business? 

Thirty years before Rock N' Roll Rose Morris was thriving supplying accordions, saxophones, drums and gramophones to troops during wartime. After Rock changed the world, RM quickly adapted and ushered in a host of then new brands such as: Marshall, Vox and Rickenbacker, supplying the likes of The Beatles, The Who and The Rolling Stones. Being in the right place at the right time is easy when you never leave.

Today, Rose Morris still stands in the heart of London supplying musicians of all kinds with the tools they need at a price they can afford and service they can rely on. When you walk past No.8 Denmark St. and gaze into our famous window on the world you will see our enticing new offerings, peerless, professional staff and yourself reflected in a century of tone, tradition and value.
