Stopped in to the Colonial Orlando store to repair my son's Tenor sax. The repair person (Jeremy) did and outstanding job and while we were waiting had the pleasure to meet Cole Curtis. He was friendly, knowledgeable and a true ASSET to your company. In these day where customer service sometimes gets put to the side, he was amazing in every aspect. He allowed my son to try out a different tenor while we were waiting, and had excellent comments and suggestions about the products he was showing us. When we get into the market to purchase another sax for Coltin, we will definately seek out Cole. As a Manager myself, I just wanted to let you know what a GEM you have in this location. Respectfully submitted,
Hello Mr. Ash! My name is Robin and I just bought a Roland TD11 electronic drum set from your Chula Vista location. The drum specialist Keith Best (he just moved out from the Richmond, VA location) helped me compare the sets, thrones, and double pedals. He also sat down and showed me exactly how to use the console on the set. He also helped us move the set into our car in the pouring rain, talked shop about sets, and shared his favorite drummers with me. He was also able to seamlessly transition to helping other customers when I had to take a moment to think about the options, and then back to me for a quick checkout process. He's a keeper! Thanks for the great selection, and especially for having a wonderful drum specialist in your shop. All the best
I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciated speaking to Roland at the Sam Ash location off McCullough in San Antonio. I am a novice interested in recording, mixing, etc. my own music. I had some rather academic questions but Roland treated me with respect and without that air of pretention or disdain that is unfortunately common among musicians, people who work in music stores, etc. In fact, Roland spoke to me like a peer, answered all of my questions, avoided the use of technical jargon, provided his professional opinions only when requested, etc. In short, Roland was the perfect person for someone like me to talk to for advice in order to for me to move forward confidently in pursuit of my new passion. Thank you for hiring him and know that his customer service approach is greatly appreciated. Happy holidays! Cheers
Hi Ian, I just want to say that It was nice meeting you yesterday and I thank you very much for your help. You guys are very nice, professional and helpful, and I am greatly appreciate it. I felt confident leaving my guitar with you. I am sure I will be recommending, buying and visiting your store in the future. Thanks again
Hi, I'm writing to recognize your employee Glenn Jones Jr., Sales Engineer, at the store on 14200 Beach Boulevard, Westminster, CA. I went in looking for a pair of studio monitors and a sub that weren't in stock there. Instead of sending me away to another location, he took care of ordering it for me immediately while matching Amazon Prime 2 day shipping. It's refreshing to go into a store where employees take pride in their work and go out of their way to make sure their customers get what they came in for. He's shifted my opinion of your business from neutral to positive, and I'll definitely buy my future gear at Sam Ash! Great job!
Hey Sammy, Just wanted to let you know how shocked and amazed I was at the customer service provided by Keith (general manager) and Becca (woodwinds section employee) at the Raleigh, NC store today. They both went above and beyond to make me happy. It's nice to know that customer service still exist. You can consider me a loyal Sam Ash customer from now on. Thanks,
Sirs, Last Friday, August 26th, I came to your San Antonio store in hopes of replacing a power supply for a Shure wireless microphone. Austin went above and beyond in trying to provide what we needed. When he told me that the power supply was no longer being manufactured he tried several other units that had multiple plugs but none fit. In order to make certain we were able to have a working unit he suggested several local repair shops who could fix the short in the wires. One was even a competitor to your store but his dedication was to his customer. This is just one of the many reasons I shop exclusively at Sam Ash for equipment for my work and my own musical needs. Keep it up, Sam Ash!
Gentlemen, I'd like to salute the staff at your Sam Ash Huntington location. They were extremely helpful as my son and I looked at instruments this past Saturday. Greg was especially diligent in assisting my son in selecting the appropriate acoustic/electric bass guitar that we purchased. A good sales staff is a credit to their management, so great job training them! Thanks again,
Some years ago, we bought a gorgeous red Fender Strat for our son from the Sam Ash store in our neighborhood. It was his prize guitar. In 2005, we had a devastating house fire. Practically the only thing was salvaged was the Strat. I cleaned up all of the smoke damage and brought it back to Sam Ash to see if it be restored to life. Believe it or not, it played fine when we plugged it in. My son now has many guitars, but none as treasured as his Sam Ash Stratocaster.
