We have reduced all our Yamaha prices for the second time this year, making Yamaha instruments even more affordable.
We have been able to do this due to the favourable exchange rate against the Euro. It is likely that we will never see prices this low again, so why not invest in a quality instrument from Yamaha now.
The new Tromba Pro Trombone is now in stock at our stores. New colours due in later this year include pink!
Some of the improvements over the previous model include:
- New bright glossy colours
- The gig-bag is now more padded for protection
- Comes with 2 mouthpieces
- Smoother slide
They are only half the weight of a normal trombone, are durable, and cost less than £100.
We have been awarded a Gold Trusted Merchant for 2015. This is the second year in a row for us.
Feefo’s independent feedback system has been designed to provide product and service reviews you can trust. All reviews are shown on our website (good and bad) and are completely un-edited by us.
The certificate is awarded where 95% of customers have given the company a ranking of “Excellent” or “Good” across a four point scale. Our rating varied over the year between 99% and 100%. Very few retailers have achieved 100% from Feefo.
A big thank you to all our customers who have taken the trouble to write a review. We do read every one of them. Also thank you to all our staff, who have helped us to achieve this high rating.
