It's a common misconception that when a musical instrument arrives from the factory 'brand new' it means it's ready to play. In truth, it takes a skilled hand to get these instruments in to shape and playing correctly, especially if the instrument has been shipped from overseas.
At Ackerman Music we're proud to say we check and setup every instrument that we sell. This means every instrument has been inspected by one of our workshop team, and all the necessary adjustments will have been made before you receive it.
Unfortunately this is not the case with some online sellers, and we see lots of instruments that aren't fit to play (even for an experienced musician!) This is a particular problem for young learners, who will think they are not good enough to play the instrument, rather than see that the seller has cut corners to cut costs!

(Instruments over £100 are always sent by our Express service, regardless of the service selected in the checkout.)

We are one of the top suppliers of woodwind, brass and orchestral strings across Sussex and are main agents for most of the instruments we sell. We only list instruments we normally carry in stock.
