Uk Peeps. Turnkey Music Store?

Hello all,

I'm dying to order something from the Turnkey website. Ya'know the business that famously kicked the bucket last year with soundcontrol.

Do any of you know whether they are still trading? I don't want to presume just because their website is still up that they are open for business.

I've sent emails but no reply.

Cheers.

It's a new operation, someone bought the name and is running it as a web-only concern. The shop on Charing Cross Road is long-shuttered...

It's owned by the unfortunately-acronymed PMT now, which also runs this website:

Professional Music Technology - 01702 332743

So if you have trouble contacting Turnkey, try PMT... same business, different website.

Hope that helps.

I recently noticed their website was still up and running.....saw a product i was looking for, for an excellent price (better than anywhere else).....went and ordered it. A day later the order got canceled with no explanation....(no problems on my side).
Basically i'd take their advertised prices with a pinch of salt.

Turnkey

Did a wee search and found these links -

http://www.dv247.com/turnkey - this say that Turnkey ceased trading, however,

PMT secures purchase of Turnkey and Soho Soundhouse | Musical Instrument Professional | News by Mi Pro - this site say that the brands were bought by PMT.

I bought from Turnkey before the bankruptcy and never had a problem with them, but I would wait until you atleast get a reply from the new owners before buying.

heh

Turnkey had great prices, and even better 'throw-out and end of line' prices. However!, the muppets that worked there had zero idea about anything except churning and burning unsuspecting people with crap recommendations. If you know or knew what you were looking for then it was a good trade, otherwise it might be same again with this new lot... but I'm more than willing to be proven wrong.

I mean i love being told that 'The SM57 is one of the most loved industry standard condenser mics around... there is a reason why EVERY studio has one'.. ** Wiggy nods head.. "Uh Huh!!!"**

That does help me indeed. Thanks everyone.

Their website has the great river pre (500 series) for Β£528, pretty good price like considering everywhere else is charging well over Β£600.

I shall phone up tomorrow and try my luck with that amount. Fingers Crossed huh.

Thanks again.

I've just had the same experience: Order cancelled and credit card refunded.
