Found this place yesterday. Ordered some instruments and was very pleased with the quick ship time and great communication. This was my very first time to purchase instruments online instead of in a physical store.

It’s been a while since I used this last and a lot has changed. I only had to enter some very basic information and was immediately contacted to have my query resolved. Excellent high touch customer experience.
