Easy order process, arrived well packaged and it was shipped quickly. Thanks

There was a delay by the delivery company and it didn't arrive "next day", but that's not Rimmers fault.

Would definitely buy from them again (if I ever needed another piano).

The Fender guitar I ordered arrived quickly. Despite very unsafe packing the guitar was not damaged - besides uneven wood cutting inside (see the picture). In my opinion it was pure luck as the guitar arrived in a big box, covered only with very thin plastic foil; you could clearly hear the rubling inside whenever you picked up the box. No other issues though, plays well & the sound is great.

I'm sorry you're disappointed, we do send our guitars out in the box that our supplier uses to ship to us, it is unusual for us to have any problems with that.

Glad to hear you like how the guitar sounds and play

Ordered a Roland kit Saturday and turned up Tuesday. Had a phone call to tell me what was going on. Great service and price was really competitive.
First time I've used Rimmers, but will definitely come back to them next time I've looking to purchase based on this experience.
Well done Rimmers.

Very pleased with my recent purchase of a cool Black Star Bluetooth amp, delivered promptly - actually a return, but I would easily have paid full price for one.It did not disappoint. I needed it to be portable, and altho' slightly larger in size than I had imagined, (still only 11" wide x 5.5" deep) it is indeed only 2.5 kilos, yet with enough power and good quality sound. Fab!!!

I bought a new piano stool for my Mum and for myself to enjoy as she teaches me piano.
It was easy to order, and free delivery and quicker than 24 hours to have delivered. It is a lovely stool and we are very happy with our purchase. Would not hesitate to order from Rimmers Music again.
