  • It's a small music store in Reykjavik. In spite of the small game and a lot of fun to see the different kinds of recordings and tried to shoot, shoot. You can also view the recording that you want to listen to the song. Watch a couple of types of local music and tried to buy a favorite album. Iceland as a souvenir album of local bands, it's also a good buy I think:), also very friendly staff! Try to listen to music while sitting do get coffee heh heh thank you!

  • Once the suede and Bjork through or was likely. 1 f souvenirs and new sound, basement LP placed in the Center. Where there is first of all coffee shop what's good. Boombox is sound then became concerned about hearing whatever so far. Speaking clerk vinyl also beat me (laughs). After clerk recommended in the "Ambient, Shoegazer" went to the basement if you have ask if "The Third Sound" which brought a CD of the band. So good when you watch bought as a souvenir. Espresso while slowly finding a source of Iceland was not replaced by anything.

  • Awesome store. I won't say anything new saying they make you a great cup of espresso & let listen to the CDs before you buy them. No sales pressure (unlike the US stores). I got a great recommendation on the album & my husband loved it. A must to visit if you are looking for some music to bring home.
  • Good store for new music. When I visited Used section downstairs was relatively well picked through but prices were good.
  • I had an amazing experience at 12 Tónar. I wanted records by Icelandic musicians and found a dedicated section in the basement. The staff assisted me by locating albums based on my tastes and I was able to listen to them on CD before making my purchase. I bought all but one of the albums. I can't thank them enough for introducing me to the Icelandic metal group "Sólstafir."
  • Excellent store to find any obscure Icelandic musician or composer on CD or vinyl. Highly recommended. They also stock a shelf with tourist souvenirs.
  • Free espresso while you sit and enjoy practically any cd or record in the store. It's a great environment to explore new music, and ensure that whatever you buy you'll enjoy.
