Ernest Watts was the founder of this Hove musical instrument firm. In 1912, they were known to have stocked His Master’s Voice Gramophones with every record and every machine in stock. By 1931 the business was described as a pianoforte warehouse and Watts was running it with his son. Ernest Watts died on 22 March 1942. In the early 1970’s they were referred to as “being good for cheap labels”.
