"I just recieved my box of reeds in the mail today after 3 or 4 days and I am very much satisfied with how they were perfectly packed and how excellent they play and sound. I will be ordering from your site in the near future. Thank you for having such a great site that is easy to find what your looking for in the music field to order from."

"I placed my order for an accordion on a Sunday morning before President's Day, expecting the typical delays associated with weekend and holiday orders. Then, to my surprise, the accordion arrived on Tuesday right after President's Day. I was very pleased, not only for the quality of service, but also for the quality of the instrument. The sound is beautiful, and I will play it in church this coming Sabbath. Many thanks"

"ActiveMusician has exceeded all my expectations of an on line equipment purchase. Not only did you confirm my shipment within minutes of my inquiry, you upgraded for Saturday delivery in an emergency situation. And you went the extra mile again to provide tracking numbers to my home and work e-mail. It was an absolute pleasure doing business with you and I will recommend your services to anyone looking to buy online."
