Tribute to Tower Records
Welcome to the Tribute to Tower Records website. This site is dedicated to telling the story of Tower Records.
Russell Solomon founded Tower Records in 1960 in Sacramento, California. He named the store after the drugstore his father owned, which was in the same building as the Tower Theatre, from which Solomon originally sold records. Seven years after the original store was opened, a Tower Records store opened up in San Francisco, in an ex-grocery store on the corner of Columbus and Bay streets. Another then joined the original store in 1976, next door to it, that sold books, plants and posters.
The Tower Records franchise would go on to expand throughout the United States and then internationally, until there were stores all over the world, in Canada, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, South Korea, the Philippines, Malaysia, Israel, Ireland, Mexico, United Arab Emirates, Ecuador, Argentina and Colombia.
The Japanese Tower Records stores became independent of the original franchise, and so remain in business.
We also supply wall-mounted supports as an alternative to floor-standing tables. The Sound Shelf is designed for situations where wall-mounting equipment is necessary – in a home where there are young children or where the floor is not stable. It provides performance enhancements for both source and amplification components.
Moving on from here, we also manufacture a complimentary range of Amplifier Stands. These are designed to support several components and come with between two and six shelves as standard. If you require more shelves or particular spacing between them, we can custom-build stands to your specification.

A common practice for a dealer is to take payment from your card and then, when the goods don’t arrive, tell you they were out of stock, and then a delivery time is quoted. We don’t do this !! – We will contact you with product details and clear delivery time before asking for card details – and then only process the card when the goods are collected by our carriers. If the whole process fills you with dread, just call our number below and have your card handy. You could also fill the form out below print it off and fax it to us. The choice is yours
The numbers are on the top left-hand side of your address label.

The Tower Records stores sold CDs and cassette tapes, and also went on to sell DVDs, video games, toys, accessories, and electronic products such as mp3 players. Some Tower Records stores also sold books too. Tower Records was one of the first retailers to get online in 1995 as Tower.com, and the online music store continues to do business today.
We now offer dedicated stands for floor-standing speakers such as the Naim SBL and Linn Isobarik and ATC loudspeakers. Other floor-standing speakers have responded equally well to being placed on one or more Sound Stages. We’ve also discovered that these platforms regularly have a dramatic effect when used under compact speakers, or mounted on other manufacturers’ stands.
