Excellent

Good Site layout, competitive pricing

none as yet

In my search for guitar accessories I came upon this site whilst comparing prices for various bits and pieces I needed to enhance the experience of my lovely new Gibson guitar. In particular I wanted something to protect my strings, it isn't a big thing to change strings but they do take a while...

Easy to order from the site

You won't get what you paid for.

Ordered a guitar from this company a month ago, for which they took immediate payment. After chasing them for a month they finally say that the Guitar is no longer available from the manufacturers and hang up. On going to their website I find the guitar for sale but at a higher price. This...

Not a shop I'd ever attempt to buy goods off again. My wife ordered me an amplifier about two months before my birthday was due. Three days before the event, she was still chasing Music King to try and get them to deliver, after a string of broken promises. We eventually ordered the amp from...

Polite, quick delivery, good price

None for me

I found these guys on Google Shopping whilst looking for a Tapco mixer. Their internet price was good but I still managed to barter the sales guy down by a tenner which equated to free postage. The salesman was very chatty and helpful. The package arrived next day no probs which was necessary as...

You can call and speak to a real person for advice

Phone line not open Sunday

I was looking for some PA and DJ equipment but needed some advice as to what would be most suitable for my performances so I called their "hotline". Call was answered after just a few rings, and the person I spoke to gave me some good and unbiased advice on several PA systems within my budget...

THE MUSIC KING what can I say? My fiancee went to purchase a Fender Guitar from this shower, the price was right and they promised all the right things. They debited the money from her account on the 13th July 2010 promising delivery before my 40th birthday. Yet despite assurances it never turned...

Good selection of products.

Donr expect to actually receive products.

The website itself is well laid out and easy to use. The range of products offered is very good with a range of musical instruments and accessories on offer. That is where the good part ends however. After ordering from this website I had not received my goods or heard anything from them after...
