"Brilliant. This is only the second review I've submitted in >15yrs of internet shopping. Keith in the mail order/web sales department couldn't have been more helpful. I bought a Kala tenor ukulele (which is great), and Keith collected all the tenor uke cases, and tested each of them for fit. Once I received the ukulele the following morning, I realised that I'd received the wrong spare set of strings that I'd ordered (my mistake), and Keith was again so, so helpful. I can't recommend GigGear highly enough. Thanks again guys."
"My 10 year old Granddaughter has just started guitar lessons. We wanted to visit a physical music shop so that she could try the guitars out, so that she could get a guitar that not only sounded good, but was the right size, weight and style for her. We settled on a Yamaha APX 500 after speaking to one of the men that work at Gig Gear, Harlow. He was helpful with out being intrusive. He explained that we could use the guitar with a hybrid ‘silk’ set of strings to start with. This enabled my Granddaughter to learn on the guitar as if it was a classic/acoustic guitar and once she becomes more confident we can change the strings and play the guitar as an electro acoustic guitar. I played in pub bands in the 60’s and 70’s. I was impressed with the guy’s knowledge and the way he explained about the guitar to my granddaughter. After she decided what guitar she wanted, I played the Yamaha and was impressed with the quality of the guitar. I would recommend Gig Gear if you are considering buying a musical instrument for your children or grand children."
"Fantastic place with fantastic service from all the guys. So knowledgable and helpful. We bought our daughter a new bass guitar as a surprise and they very kindly went along with the surprise plan. Thank you so much we will be back to buy all the additional gadgets for sure!"
"Rob.A Fantastic friendly pro service"
"Excellent advise and help. Allowed to try out the instruments to make sure they were OK. No pushy sales. Excellent"
"Exceptional experience. They allowed me to test any guitar i wished until the right guitar found me. Ended up with a beautiful Taylor guitar. Highly recommend for all your music needs. ?????"
