About us

Dijkmans Music Breda

Dijkmans Music is a specialized guitar store in Breda with beautiful brands such as Paul Reed Smith, Fender, Gibson, Patrick James Eggle, Mayones, Lowden, Taylor, Martin and many more! Our store has been located in the center of Breda on the Haagdijk since 1991 and we are therefore easy to reach by car or public transport. In the store we try to emphasize personal contact with our customers through a casual atmosphere, good music and of course beautiful instruments. We love sharing stories about music and gear, and we're happy to advise customers on new purchases, whether they're buying their first guitar or a PRS Private Stock. Buying a new guitar is a great feeling but it can also be an exciting experience at the same time, so it is very important to us that customers feel comfortable and at home. We have therefore decorated the interior with this in mind and we are very proud of our beautiful store, which is characterized by its intimate atmosphere with a cozy layout, lots of wood accents, warm colors and of course: LOTS OF GUITARS!

The Dijkmans Team

The captain at the helm is Jan-Willem van Zanten , who took over the store in 2010. At the time of this takeover, Dijkmans Muziek was still a modest music store. However, under his inspiring leadership, Dijkmans quickly expanded into a specialized guitar shop, and Dijkmans Music gradually grew into one of the Netherlands' largest, most exclusive and successful guitar shops. When Jan-Willem took over the shop, our builder and repairman Bob van Dinther had been working there since 1987. Bob is one of the most experienced and respected luthiers in the Netherlands, so your most precious possession is guaranteed to be in good hands with Bob! Tijn Nieuwstad can always be found in the bass department on Thursday evenings and Saturdays. Since 2019, Sven Broos , with his enthusiasm and great wealth of gear knowledge, has been the ideal companion in your search for your new instrument. Didier Smits & Fleur van Zuilen work in the store as a photographer, media creator and website builder/administrator. In addition, you have come to the right place for all your questions about gear.

Dykeman online

In addition to our beautiful store on the Haagdijk, we are also active online (but you already knew that since you are now on our website). For example, it is possible to order all instruments that are hanging in the store via our webshop. We take detailed photos of every instrument, and also regularly make demonstration videos. That way you know exactly what you are buying. In addition to our webshop, you can also regularly find advertisements on Reverb and Marktplaats. 

The Dijkman's promise

Quality and customer satisfaction are our top priority. That is why we offer a free service with every newly purchased guitar in our store, which can be redeemed within 3 months of purchase. This service is done by Bob, and he provides a full MOT inspection for the guitar. For example, the neck, action and possibly. electronics checked, so that your guitar remains in optimal condition. There is also a cooling-off period of 8 days for purchases in the store. Displeased? Then you can exchange your purchase.
