Roy and Julie Rawles first opened Sounds International in 1978 – when the World was a differnet place.

Originally, the shop specialised in Organs and Pianos, when many homes had one.

Sounds International have constantly evolved to meet the demands of Bath’s musicians.

With development of Electronic keyboards in the 80s and 90s, Sounds became the first place for the latest models and were proud to be a Technics Music School – even producing end of term shows with all the students performing their new skills very proudly.

Moving into percussion and band gear, Roy and Julie recognised the need for more electric guitars and drum kits, much noiser! Their success with this lead to a special visit from Mr. Jim Marshall – the ‘Father of Loud’ who invented the Sound of Marshall Amplifiers - although well past his retirement date, Jim was a gracious visitor and very busy signature giver at the Marshall Night, held at Bath City F.C. - a night many still remember foundly.

With the closure of a local competitor in 2008, Sounds International strenghtened their education business, supplying brass, woodwind, percussion and educational instruments to a large selection of schools and colleges across the region.

Today, in 2012 – Sounds International are now the only Music Shop in Bath – supplying a first class service and product toBath’s musicians – from 8 to 80.
