|I purchased an Epiphone Explorer over the phone and had it delivered to me inside two days. Excellent service. I contacted Dave via email prior to my purchase and I was really impressed by the speed of his response. I will definately purchase from Symphony Music in the future. Thanks again Dave. Regards.

|I have just purchased a new Taylor 314 ce guitar from Symphony Music and I have to say that David and Michelle Bamford(owners of Symphony Music)were an absolute delight to deal with; both understand and deliver an exceptionally high level of customer service by understanding a customer's needs and responding to those needs in a very relaxed, informed and non pressurised way. In particular, David possesses a great deal of knowledge about Taylor Guitars which helped me choose the perfect guitar for my needs. |
|I've been going to this shop for a long time, and iv purchased every guitar I have ever owned from Symphony Music each guitar was exceptional! and when I wore my guitar frets down they offered to repair it and restring it for free, During my experiences at Symphony Music I was learning under one of the greatest guitar teachers I know, Steve(cant say I can spell his last name so il leave it out) The service is amazing it is always warm and welcoming and I cant ever think of a time where I have felt unwanted, They have a wide range of products so there is a guitar in there for everybody. I just want to say Thank you Dave for all the extra work you and your staff has done for me.|
|I live in Chester but was born and bred in Wigan. I had bought an Epiphone Les Paul from Dawsons in Chester earlier in the year, but found myself lusting after an ebony SG G-400, which I saw Symphony had in stock. I called in on a busy Saturday afternoon and was extremely impressed with the knowledgeable and friendly service I received, even though I am a relative novice. I do not know the name of the man I dealt with, but well done Symphony!I would happily buy from them again.|
|Fantastic music shop. I have never had better service, advice and a friendly atmosphere. I have bought, traded and sold many items here and would not get my instruments and accessories from anywhere else. Thanks Dave.|
|After suffering the 'dawsons experience' a few times I thought I'd try somewhere out of town, great personal service, nobody bothered me, Dave set me up upstairs and just left me to it, bought the epiphone DOT, after having a chat about a few guitars with someone who knows his stuff, would definitely recommend thanks.|
|Recently bought a new Squire Vintage Modified V bass from Symphony for £273. I part exchanged an Ebenezer SR-300 which I got a great price on. Dave even matched the internet price on the bass which I was surprised by! With the fender rebate added I got a cracking' deal. Will definately be buying from Symphony again.|
Thanks much Dave!
|I have bought several items from Dave at Symphony Music, and his Service, Product Knowledge, and Prices are not rivalled in any other music store I used previously. Its a no brainer now.. If I want anything for my studio… I ring or visit Dave. Job Done !!|

|My recent experiences in buying an acoustic guitar and a cello from Symphony Music in Wigan mirror all of the other reviews. Everything was first class - service, choice, advice, price, atmosphere, friendliness etc. In the UK the customer experience is often suboptimal but my experience at Symphony Music has restored my hope. I will be recommending this shop at every opportunity and will be back many, many times in the future.|

|I was looking for a Taylor guitar and I couldn't believe the deal that I got from Dave at Symphony. I was offered £100 for my Japanese 12 String Stratocaster at Rimmers music but Dave at Symphony offered me £360 and that was before I had made a decision on which guitar I was going to buy. If you are reading this message whoever you are I have to say that Symphony's part ex policy is both fair and transparent. As for the deal then a series 8 Taylor guitar was what I decided on and at a good price too!. The store has a vast amount of musical instruments Thanks Dave, I will be back for more goodies. In a nutshell, a fair deal and a good one too!|
