WHY ARE THERE TWO PRICES?
The prices reflect the level of service we can offer depending on how you buy from us:
When you buy online
If you click-and-buy a brass instrument from our website, we will offer what every other mail-order company does – boxed warehouse stock sent by courier which has passed the manufacturer’s quality control and is covered under their warranty.
When you buy in-store
The combination of natural materials and tiny variations within and between brands means every brass instrument is unique. Nothing beats trying a range of models, as well as the exact instrument you intend to purchase, until you find one that ‘works with you’.
We inspect all our shop stock before it is sold to ensure you receive an instrument that meets our high standards, and we often pick up on faults that the factory’s quality control missed.
A brass instrument is a real piece of engineering; a complex system of valves and slides within a body made of natural materials means they are sensitive to changes in temperature, heavy handedness and bumps. Time and time again we see people bring their brand new instrument in for repair because they damaged before they’ve even had chance to play it!
We take time to teach you how to handle and care for your instrument to avoid unnecessary repairs, so you are comfortable and confident and can get the most enjoyment out of it.
Add to this the other facilities we offer, including rental and finance options, part exchanges and a loan instrument if yours is in for repair, buying in-store definitely gives the best value for money.
