Covid-19 Dispatch update

Update as of 28/08/2020

A quick update to say that my local post office is now able to take my 'drop & go' parcels from me outside of the normal post office hours similar to what they did for me before the lockdown. This is great news for me, and greatly reduces my time spent queuing to ship the orders, time is of the essence!

I am now going to be shipping orders 3 times a week, Monday morning, Wednesday morning and Friday morning. 

Delivery times and International Orders
For the most part, shipments have been on time which is superb, but there has been some delays which have predominantly international shipments. If you have an order which you require on time or for a specific day, I would recommend either getting in touch to ensure I can help achieve that for you as well as opting for a tracked or courier postage option at the checkout. As this has been occurring, please than usual bear this in mind before ordering and I would definitely recommend opting for the tracked Postage or ideally, courier services for the moment.

Of course, if you have any questions about this please do send me a message at james@homeoftone.co.uk or via the contact form on the website and I'll do my best to help and accommodate for your needs. Thank you very much for your understanding & continued support,

James

UFO Alien Overlord! Shirt now available for Pre-Order!

UFO Alien Overlord! Shirt now available for Pre-Order!

I'm incredibly proud to launch my latest limited edition shirt design, which was designed by the immense talent that is Drew Millward. I've followed Drew's work for quite some time personally, so it's amazing to see him do his thing with the Home of Tone branding! For this idea I thought it would be cool to see our UFO tone pot featured in a 50s Sci-Fi film poster style design, and Drew took it even further than that, turning the tone pot turned into an Alien Overlord with a EL84 amp valve head too!

New shirt design incoming!

New shirt design incoming!

It has felt like a while since my last limited edition Home of Tone shirt design came out, so it's about time I change that! I asked an illustrator whom I'm a huge fan of, the immensely talented Drew Millward, to come up with a new shirt design and he's done an incredible job with it!

My brief was for something inspired by 50s Sci-Fi film posters and to involve me usual tone pot UFO, and he has taken it step further with a amp valve head Alien overlord design! 

There will be more info to come in terms of the final shirt choice etc, but rest assured I'll share it as soon as it's available to order!

Millimetric Instruments order/wait list currently closed

Millimetric Instruments order/wait list currently closed

Florian announced this week that he has decided to temporarily close the order/waiting list due to the list time now reaching 3 years. To ensure the focus is on completing the current wait list customer's instruments and the wait doesn't exceed 3 years, I think it is the right decision to help maintain the ethos and build processes.

I will of course be keeping in touch with Millimetric as time passes and will update as soon as orders are able to be accepted again. In the mean time, I am more than happy to answer any spec/model questions and also still welcome visits to trial the demo instrument here!

Ethos

Curated by James P Gascoigne, the 'Home of Tone' is a humble collection of guitars, parts & accessories that have been individually selected to be represented here for their quality, design and the brand in question's shared passion for the guitar.

I certainly don't consider the Home of Tone as re-writing the book on guitar store approach, but instead see this venture as writing my own book about what I love about the guitar; the instrument that has provided inspiration in numerous facets of my life from an early age.

All I hope, is that you find the Home of Tone a place share your passion for guitars with me. The stores name is a bit of fun ultimately, but the intention is from the heart and since the humble beginnings in 2015 it seems there are so many of you that can relate to the approach. For that, the least I can say is Thank You.
