"Delighted with my purchase of a Yamaha digital piano from Rimmers at a competitive price. I received good advice pre-purchase and customer service was very helpful in resolving an issue with a damaged piano stool. I can thoroughly recommend Rimmers and will use them in the future. Just those piano skills to practice ...."

"I bought a Kawai ES8 digital piano at Rimmers Music online in May 2019. Not only did Rimmers Music have this product at the most competitive price I could find, they also had the best dedicated page of credit options of any online musical instrument retailer, including 0% interest over 24 months. I was able to apply for credit online in a process which took only a few minutes and received my new piano within forty eight hours. After placing my order, I received a follow up call from a very courteous and helpful gentleman at Rimmers Music. I don't believe that I would ever make further purchases of musical instruments or accessories at any other online retailer."

"Fantastic service and after sales. I purchased the Casio PX-S1000 package which had a lead time with a Casio due to its recent release. Rimmers customer service was fantastic. Kept me updated throughout, arranges prompt delivery and answered all of my questions from product details, selection and package requirements. The children absolutely love the purchase and are really enjoying the digital piano, stand and pedals. I would wholeheartedly recommend Rimmers music."

"Ordered and paid for an item, only to be told it was out of stock. Update said 3-5 working days, but this was extended to two weeks. This item should have been marked out of stock as soon as I ordered it..not good for business Rimmers. Poor service."

I'm sorry to hear that you've experienced a delay with the item that you ordered. We do unfortunately, from time to time have incorrect stock information. We are constantly working to improve this, as the last thing we want to do is give our customers inaccurate information.

I realise that this has been disappointing for you and we sincerely apologise for the delay.

If there is anything further that we can do, please get in touch

"Rimmers were great to deal with, brilliant customer service, Lynn was very responsive. My only complaint is with Dpd who said they couldn’t deliver because nobody was home. I was home all day because I had taken unpaid leave."

"After an eBay seller decided to renege on our deal and my ‘winning bid’, I decided to splash out for a brand new Korg synth with Rimmer Music, the first time I’ve used them. The service was flawless and I was happily in the possession of my new instrument the following morning! Fantastic service and amazingly low price. Highly-recommended."

"I had seen some not so good reviews of Rimmer. However I have been very pleased with their service which has been excellent. I initially purchased a keyboard and other items separately. I realized soon after that I could have purchased the same items at a cheaper price. I called Rimmer and the representative was excellent. I had a couple of other issues and each time I called the representatives were excellent. I am very happy with the service and products."

"i had missing item from my order(two items total, so hard to miss), i had to wait extra days for them to send me the missing part of my order. I had to waste my time to get the item i paid for and this was my first and last order. Such a mess to send guitar in the original unopened box, when the order has other items on it, how can you miss putting them in is beyond me. Very disappointing."

I'm so sorry that your lead needed to be sent the following day. We did let you know as soon as we were aware of this very short delay, but we are very sorry you are disappointed.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with as I would like you to be happy.
