The Spirit of 1959 – “Sowing seeds for the future, driven by passion”

In 1959 a music revolution swept across the United Kingdom and Stuart Mercer founded Carlsbro Sound. Bands like The Rolling Stones, Herman’s Hermits and The Beatles made history by using the a ”British Tone” created by Stuart and the Carlsbro Sound team. Sadly we lost Stuart in 1996 but his dream lives on. Britain leads the world in music and sound and Bishop Sound now brings back that tone. You will see on the site a superb range of PA for all budgets and applications.

After a lifetime in music, Andrew Bishop (who made his first speaker cabinet in 1972) rescued Carlsbro on 1st January 2001. Andrew was supported by the existing Carlsbro team including John Roberts (Head of Sales).

During the global financial crisis in 2008/2009 the iconic British Music brand Carlsbro was taken over by the Chinese and the British engineers together with the British tone, services and British values were no longer required.

Over 50 years later the “Spirit of 1959″ and delivery of “British Tone” lives and thrives at Bishop Sound.


On 19th October 2012 a handful of British Carlsbro engineers and supporters were gathered together with one purpose, to bring back “The Spirit of 1959″ and deliver “British Tone” in product that carries British values and a “Spirit of honesty and fairness”. There was a great deal of research to do.

Reluctant to use his name Andrew was encouraged by his customers to use his the name so www.bishopsound.com went live and Bishopsound Ltd was formed in May 2016!

Customers all over the world started to study the new products that have been created with care by the British engineers. Every product comes with a “Perfect British Tone” guarantee.

One customer commented “this is a fantastic range at prices that enable us to make money it looks like we may have a brand new ship with a time served captain at the helm”.

We are proud to serve all our friends at home and all around the world and promise a perfect service and a working relationship that demonstrates that truly care…

We are proud to design and make products here in Yorkshire and ship them all around the world.
