MERCHANT CITY MUSIC - Key Persons
Ali, Alec or Alex as many of our suppliers would know him as, has a wealth of knowledge not only about guitars and basses but sound in general. Ali is a qualified recording engineer and when he's not helping people in the merchy he's usually in the depths of a studio somewhere perfecting a mix. He's also an actively gigging musician who is in more bands than any of us can remember and regularly gigs around the UK and Europe. He plays drums best, bass next best and last but not least guitar!
Ben has a degree in Japanese and speaks fluent Fenderese and Computerish, he can talk sense as well and will always do his very best to sort you out. An avid pedal collector, Ben's favourite type of effect is fuzz or anything that makes his guitar sound like its broken.
- Advertising and Marketing Manager
Oddly talented with a glass slide. Usually to be found with a phone in both ears and a nice picture on his computer screen. Actually been to Baghdad, but only for one night!
This man is the reason your guitar is packed all lovely and safely, he is a whiz with cardboard, but he has been known to walk in a room, play bass, and make people happy. Johnny is one of the finest bass players in Scotland, and he plays guitar better than he plays bass!
Experienced gigger with his band Azriel, Richard is the most recent member of the Merchy family. Friendly, approachable and a fantastic guitarist. He also likes cakes and is a dab hand in the kitchen.
- Purchasing and Accounts Manager
Has the 'Power of Sound' embedded into his fingers. Forgotten that he's actually quite good at the guitar, it's been that long since anyone heard him. Has been at the Merchy since he was, but a lad.
