Are you looking for a new musical instrument? Or perhaps, you are fed up with your usual music shop and you are looking to change it? Or maybe you’re new to Geneva and your guitar needs a bit of work?
Head for Carouge where behind the tram stop, you will find a little music shop for Big guitar players. But you will also find bass guitars, cymbals or double-bass, synthesisers and other Ukuleles.
The spirit of this little shop is not for sale; the staff is here to help you, guide you and pay attention to your needs. The service has been impeccable for many years.
Stephane is the owner of The Works and I must say he recruited the perfect staff to help him out. Do take any advice from them and don’t hesitate to ask to try a beautiful second-hand Martin or the Gibson which hangs from the ceiling and pays tribute to the bluesmen.
Your heart will go boom boom boom as soon as you step in and it’s really hard to exit the shop without buying anything. To tell you the truth, a guitar is already waiting for me there!
13 years ago, I stepped inside The Works for the first time: I had earned my very first salary with a student job and that’s precisely where I headed. My heart belongs there and I allow myself no infidelity.
