What the customers are saying...

Craig:  Thanks for the holiday greeting but most especially for the cello shipped to my arrived quickly and in great condition.  My 31 year old son is thrilled that he can still remember all the scales and songs he learned in 4th grade orchestra.  (Now he is a sometime music teacher at A.R.T.S…”a reason to survive” in San Diego and bassist).

Thank you for your note and helping me with my first “fiddle”. I have enjoyed it very much and the quality for my limited knowledge is excellent. Without your help I may not have maintained my interest in playing but now love to fiddle with it. P Sweeney

Thank you!

Just a note to say how wonderful the cello is that I bought last summer from you!  My son Tage is playing beautifully and he loves it!!!!

Merry Christmas!!!
