"I couldn't believe it! I ordered a drumset for my nephew for his birthday through your website just 2 days before his birthday. Ordering so late I just knew it wouldn't arrive until a few days after his birthday. I was thrilled when he called during his "big party day" to say it arrived and Thanks. He's still young enough that getting your birthday presents on the day of is still a big deal. Thank you so much!"

"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 activemusician.com and was able to find the drums I wanted and in a color I wanted. Hats off to your good service and good products."
