Tom Lee, owner of Music Heaven, certainly has confidence in local demand for quality musical instruments and audio equipments. The Hong Kong-based chain has just opened a 5,000-square-meter store near Hongqiao market, ten times the size of its original store in Beijing.
Started as a small shop in Hong Kong in 1953, Music Heaven is now a household name as the biggest audio equipment retailer there. The four-story store in Beijing is divided into several areas: keyboard and midi systems, brass instruments, guitars, pianos, percussion, and professional audio gear. The new store offers a huge selection of brand-name instruments, many of which have been unavailable in China until now.
The highlights of the store include a Petrof Concert Grand Piano (RMB 770,000) and a high-tech Freehand Music Pad (RMB 14,500).
Prices most certainly vary, but generally competitive with other music stores in Beijing. Tom Lee also offers music classes for kids and adults.
