Peter Murray's book, which scored an A+ rating from Bass Player magazine, provides bassists with everything they need to know to play effectively, helping them master the basics, and then explore what's beyond. Essential to any bass player! Once in a while, a book comes along that stands head and shoulders above the endless rows of 'method books' that fill the racks in music stores. This is one of those exceptional books. If you're a beginner, study of Murray's method could save you from countless hours of frustration (and possibly injury) by showing you the correct way to use you hands right from the start; if you're a more advanced player, it should help you to refine your ability and overcome the technical barriers that can block further development. Bravo! - Jim Roberts, Bass Player magazine

"When my fiancé told me he wanted an acoustic guitar for his birthday, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. However, this site made it very easy for me. It is very easy to find what you are looking for and the "related items" helped me pick out some accessories. I did experience a problem when it came to shipping. One of my items was reported as delivered by UPS. But when I contacted ActiveMusician, they sent out another stand right away, and it still arrived in time! I have nothing but good things to say about this site, and I have already started telling everyone about them!"

"I would just like to take the opportunity to thank you for your quality customer service. Buying things off of the internet is still a little nerve-wracking for me and can seem very impersonal, but you guys have been awesome, I appreciate your quick responses to the emails and the guitar sounds great! I would have no problem in making future purchases through you and would recommend your service to others."

"I ordered drums for my 13-year-old grandaughter for Christmas. They were ordered on December 21st. I thought there was no way she'd get them in time for Christmas and probably not before New Year's Day. To my surprise, she called us on December 23rd and said she'd already received them. Now that is amazing service. The drums are beautiful and she's estatic! We will surely be ordering more musical equipment in this coming year. Another thing. I'd gone to the local music store which carries lots of equipment and they were out of the drums I wanted to purchase. I got online and found and was able to find the drums I wanted and in a color I wanted. Hats off to your good service and good products."
