Rod Hancox

For pianos, pianos and PIANOS!

Rod is a trained piano tuner/technician who took over the family business from his father Russ a 'few' years ago. He will make sure you get exactly the right piano for your needs and won't try to sell you a 'Ferrari' when a 'Toyota' will be more appropriate. When he locks up the 'yard' for the weekend he enjoys nothing more than a spot of trout-fishing on the Tongariro...

For guitars, ukuleles and instrument accessories

George is our weekend wonder and is more than happy to help out with anything you need - especially anything guitar related! He is currently studying Popular Music at the University of Auckland. In his spare time he'll be playing one of his many guitars, ukuleles or trombones; or learning another loud instrument much to the dismay of his mother!
