Customer Testimonials

This is my third flute from Haydock Music and each time the patience, range of stock and price has been brilliant, a massive thanks to Sophie, Mary Lou and Alistair for all their help!

Gill MacDougall, Lochgilphead

Retail made easy, and great to visit a shop who know the difference between a Bb and C#, my new Tuba is just the business, keep up the good work!

Ken Stevens, Alva

Just to say thank you for the help Mr Haydock gave us on the clarinet, mouthpieces and technique, something I am sure no other shop could offer, Mark is absolutely delighted about the R13! Thank you so much, we will be back as nobody can beat this service. Retail how it should be done. We will be passing your details to everyone we know

Mr James, Stirling

We have just got back to Lancashire but wanted to let you know the lady who helped us in the shop was a great representative of how to help a customer in a shop, informative and pleasant! She gave us exactly what we needed and our new cello is stunning. Was worth all the mileage as my daughters teacher said it would be. If only there were more proper music shops like yours around.

Fran, Rochdale

HI, just to say massive thanks for the info on saxes, my brother was delighted with his present, 40 years old and starting the sax, we will all look to you for further info as to keeping the neighbors happy if they start to complain……. But in all seriousness the way you dealt with him and three tone deaf financiers was amazing, not to mention patient! I had no idea there were so  many pitfalls when buying instruments and was so glad we used the shop and your knowledge of what to get and what would fit him. We will be back, if only to get a break from ‘Baker Street’….

PS your shop is stunning, very boutique!

Ms Templeton, St Andrews

'I visited today with my son (and wife & daughter) to choose a Sax. We all agreed that the service provided by yourself was exemplary. Charlie loved the opportunity to try out various instruments and the way in which you made us all feel very welcome was appreciated.Thanks again, and be assured that we'll continue to use your shop whenever we require to further Charlie's playing and one have the greatest pleasure in recommending you to any of our friends who were considering similar.'

Nick, Glasgow

"Recently I took the notion to start looking for an electric violin, searching Google I came across ‘Haydock Music’. Being a pensioner I am not that good with computers when buying but being able to lift the phone and speak with someone as well as have web prices was very refreshing. Great service and a friendly helpful voice gave me great confidence in buying from Haydock Music. The delivery was received next day, very fast and super service. Many thanks."

Mrs Dyson, Oban

"My daughter has been at me for a while to upgrade her violin. Not being a musician I was recommended by her teacher to use Haydock Music’s web site and went ahead with the arduous task of deciding how much I did or did not want to spend. I was totally confused and had no idea what to spend! Instead of setting a budget I decided to call (not something all companies offer, some companies are keen to keep shop sales separate from the web) and spoke with one of the sales staff. He asked me all the right questions i.e. what standard of playing is she doing? Where does she want to take her music? Etc etc and we narrowed it down to two violins. To my surprise Haydock Music agreed to send two down to me for my daughter to try FOC. My daughter was elated and we chose immediately. Fantastic, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient service with a very easy to use full proof web site!"

Mr Dobbs, Sedbergh

"I often find it difficult to get the time to visit the shops as I am working mother with a Mon – Fri job. My desire to play the saxophone has never been fulfilled and on a brief visit to my computer one evening I decided to go ahead and treat myself. Haydock Music offered me a superb product at a really great price. They also new everything there was to know about student alto saxophones, the pitfalls of buying certain models, and what the difference was between more expensive instruments. I am pleased to say that I am now about to do my grade 2 and even found my teacher through Haydock Music’s recommendation! Thank you all, you have made me enjoy something I thought I would never be able to enjoy!"

Mrs Houston, Inverness

"Just a quick note to say thank you for the help and advice, your web site was easy to use, very informative and very well priced. Your delivery guys even played me a tune on my new digital piano!"

Miss Fields, Glasgow

"We are writing to you to say my son has passed his grade 8 and off to Music College! Without the help of your father in choosing/advising I fear we would not have bought the right product. The fact that we could buy a clarinet at such a great price from your site and have it hand picked at the Buffet factory was something nobody else offered us. The tweaking and small teething problems you get have been dealt with in a very seamless manner. Thank you and pass our thanks to your father!"

Mrs Greenshill, Hamilton

"Our drum kit is giving the neighbors some rhythmical evenings I am sure but we are very grateful for all the advice you gave us on the kit along with the teacher suggestions."

Mr Douglas, Glasgow

"The joy if making music is something we have enjoyed as a family for years but never have we ever thought of ‘Trialing before buying’. We did just that through Haydock Music with a tenor sax. 3 months was long enough to see if my son was up to the challenge and needless to say he is reveling in it now. Thank you for the great instrument help via your web site!"

Mr Faltonstein, Newcastle

"We bought a cello from Haydock Music recently and sadly had to return it as the teacher wanted us to spend a little more, sad to say for our bank balance as we really thought we had spent as much as we could afford. Haydock Music accepted the cello back and picked it up from us the same day as I called. We have now bought via Haydock Music’s web site a more expensive model. Thank you for all the help and understanding when things do not go exactly to plan!"

Mrs Hall, Dundee

"If anyone has ever tried to buy a clarinet mouthpiece then I would never go anywhere else other than Haydock Music as Geoff Haydock has more experience in this area than other shop in the UK in my opinion."

Mrs Daleton, Aberdeen

"Too many times have we been let down buying instruments for our family! Haydock Music ticked all the boxes in good service. You will be pleased to know the double bass is sounding as good as ever and your advice on upgrading the strings has made all the difference!"

Mrs Macleod, Harris
