"We bought my son a cornet from SMS about a year ago after searching around several companies. We chose SMS because the price of the student package including the music stand was very reasonable, because we were really impressed by how knowledgeable and helpful the owner seemed on the phone and because the 21 day money back guarantee allowed us to check suitability with the music teacher. The instrument is great as is the really sturdy case, so we went straight to SMS recently when we wanted a flute for my daughter. Both my children's music teachers are very impressed with the instruments.
After sales support is excellent; we were very impressed with the help and advice we got when my son dropped his cornet and jammed the mouthpiece! I would highly recommend SMS."
--Jackie Hewson, Andover.
"I just wanted to say thank you for the quick and efficient service we have experienced this week. I purchased a flute and a clarinet for my children to begin lessons next term. I have unpacked them, put them together and played them both. What fabulous instruments! They are well made, sound lovely and come with a good sturdy case. I just wanted to praise your good service as people are quick to complain, but slow to praise!
