Musicland (UK) Ltd was formed in 1989 by its current director with the view to offer potential customers great products with personal and professional service. Their speciality was always to offer great part exchange values wherever possible which enabled customers to get newer or more expensive instruments with the minimum of fuss and Musicland became known as the "part exchange specialist".
Now, 31 years later, with branches in Essex and Kent these same values are equally, if not more, important. Also, having product specialists throughout the company with years of experience to be able to help customers understand sophisticated instruments has been a major advantage.
TRX Keyboard Systems
As single keyboard instruments became so popular and so good, Musiclands director Brian Reeve and Musiclands manager David Harrild felt it would be lovely to have these same high quality sounds and styles as a 2 keyboard organ system and as we found out there were no stands that allowed the two keyboard to sit neatly above each other without the top keyboard being to high or strange angles also no space to bass pedals so TRX Organ Systems were developed.

Brian started in the industry from the age of 16 selling guitars. He worked with some great organ players and watched and listened to them and tried to copy by ear. His shop Manager was STEVE LOWDELL who said “ you must be able to play / demonstrate this lowery organ or you will be leaving tonight”. If he had not done so he would not be able to play or have a business today. Musicland was formed in 1989 partnership with Raymond Spillman and then TRX Keyboards Systems.
At the age of 9, his parents bought him his first keyboard which was a Bontempi. After 1 year’s tuition, he decided that he would throw away the teaching books and play by ear. David was inspired by his idol, Harry Stoneham, this encouraged him to form his Trio and became a familiar face with local Working Men's Clubs, Social Evenings and Dinner Dances. David is now known for performing at Music Festivals, Organ and Keyboard Clubs playing his Genos Organ System and is our TRX programmer and demonstrator.
