Music Planet NZ

A message from Roger Smith……

On Monday 22nd September 1980 we opened our first store at 42 Taharoto Road, Takapuna on Auckland’s North Shore.

I well remember being told by the Manager of the Bank of New South Wales after asking for a small bank loan to help get us started, that my business plan was risky and unlikely to succeed and he wouldn’t assist me. The next Bank I tried welcomed me with open arms fortunately and we outlasted the “Bank of New South Wales!”

Originally called Musical Sounds Takapuna we focussed on Organs and Pianos when the organ boom/craze was in full swing. In 1984 we expanded into guitars, amps, sound systems, drums etc.. and changed our name to Mainline Music.

In 2006 we became Music Planet and in spite of various challenges over the years (such as Covid 19 Pandemic) the Lord has blessed us mightily over the first 40 years and to Him we offer our grateful thanks and praise !!!

Many thanks also to all our faithful and loyal customers who have stuck with us over the decades – we appreciate you very much !!!

We look forward to meeting you in one of our stores, or check us out online.

Yours sincerely,
Roger Smith.
