About Us

The Wind Section Ltd
11-13 Cumberland Street


Established in 1998, The Wind Section is one of the UK’s leading musical instrument retailers specialising in brass & woodwind instruments, accessories and repairs.

Our shop is located in the elegant surroundings of Edinburgh’s New Town, within walking distance of the main bus & train stations and tram stops. Here you will find a full range of instruments and accessories from all the top brands including Buffet, Besson, Denis Wick, Hoyer, Vandoren, Yamaha, Yanagisawa and many, many more.

We also have a fantastic selection of second-hand instruments, all of which come with a 6-month warranty for complete peace of mind.

We’re just a small team, but we’re a friendly bunch and are always on hand to offer expert advice and guidance or just to have a chat!

We understand how important it is to trial instruments before committing to purchase which is why we encourage you to use our demo studio within the shop to try out any instruments or accessories.

If you’re unable to visit us in person, then you can still order online from our easy-to-use, secure website where we offer an even bigger selection of instruments and accessories at very competitive prices with FREE UK delivery on all orders of £50 and over.

Purchasing a musical instrument can be a significant investment which is why we offer a full range of finance options to help you get your dream instrument.  We’ve partnered with payment provider Klarna to offer you a number of flexible pay-later options including pay in 30 days, pay in 3 instalments or 6, 12, 24 or 36 months credit at 19.9% APR.

We also offer support for education requisitions and VAT-free assisted purchase schemes for students. To give your child the best possible start, why not take advantage of our rental scheme? You can rent a brand new instrument for a three month period. At the end of the three months either return the instrument to us or ask for a final purchase price.

The Wind Section is pleased to have an association with The Workshop who offer a complete range of repair services for brass and woodwind instruments. From a simple adjustment to a complete overhaul, the highly skilled team in The Workshop will keep your instrument in excellent working order.

Whether visiting us in-store or ordering from our website, The Wind Section really is your one-stop-shop for all things brass & woodwind!
