Allegro Music Center: what do users think?


InloveWGeorgeWeasley -: Bought a cello here months ago and its perfect! Especially since it is my first cello ever after recently starting. Although it was quite the investment ($1.3k), it certainly shows. No scratches or any damage at all in places that I would’ve thought it had and the bow is sturdy. The cello is pretty heavy since it’s full size but it’s okay because I’m becoming a great cellist!

Godfather Don: Amazing people that helped a struggling mother by cancelling her monthly payments so her kid could play trumpet. They only asked that when/if her child stopped playing, return it so they could give to another child to learn.

Joana SD Ribeiro: Rented a Double Base in really bad shape as you can see in the picture.It went to school of my son and when it came home it had a little opening. When I returned they charged me $200 to fix it. First and last time at this store

Genevieve Jenkins: We have had a great experience with Allegro Music Center. They are extremely knowledgable on musical instruments and studies. Both my children have taken lessons here - for piano and violin - and the instructors have been wonderful. They really care about music and their customers. It's truly a pleasure to visit them.

Obed Cruz: Unfortunately it is a far cry from what it used to be. Customer service was extremely poor this morning and my son and I were treated like we were bothering them. They have put pretty much zero knowledge of any brass instruments they seem to have a good supply of the string instruments though. No smiles no welcome nothing that would indicate a knowledge of what they’re selling.
Response: I apologize for your experience at our store. If you would like to further discuss the incident, please send an email to: manuel@allegromusisccenter.com Thank you for considering us. I hope we can provide a better visit next time. All the best, Manuel

James Lam: If you're looking for a reliable music store, this is the place for you. I've been coming here for almost 10 years fixing up my son's violin. Mr. Manuel Beberian is a very skillful Luthier who takes his time repairing and polishing your instruments. He also sells an excellent quality violin with prices varying on its maker. And if you buy an instrument from Allegro, you can receive free string changes if you ever need it.

Simon McCarthy: Awful customer service. I called and spoke to a woman who either barely spoke English or just couldn’t care less about helping me with a simple question. I asked three times if they carried mandolins. Finally she understood what I was asking and said “I think”. I said um... can you check for me please? So she went and checked and told me they had two. I asked if they were A or F style. She had no clue what I meant. So I explained what they were. She went on to tell me “yes, most of them have eight strings,” which is completely irrelevant. Finally I got tired of doing her job for her and hung up the phone. Their mandolins are in my price range but I’d rather go somewhere else. Don’t bother attempting to shop here, just go to Guitar Center or another custom shop.

Dr. Lisa Walker: I have done business with Manuel for over 15 years and find him to be the most reasonable violin shop in Florida. Manuel works hard to get you the instrument you need and makes sure you are satisfied even months after your purchase. He goes over and above the role of a shop proprietor....even meeting you at the airport if you are in transit to make a transaction work for you. I find him to be honest and fair in all of his dealings. My parents have only the very best experiences with Manuel. I highly recommend Allegro Music Center.

G. Meroi: Really bad experience, we have been waiting for 40 minutes outside the store after the opening hour, was all the time closed, we end up leaving

Jo Marquez: They fixed the guitar that apparently was too difficult for others to repair. They always communicated with me after I left my guitar. They gave me an estimate of what it would cost me before starting to work on it. I couldn't be happier. Those that claim to provide great service can learn from these people.

El Estilo Musical: what do users think?


Rogelio Flores: This is my typical place for strings and stuff. Friendly people, nice place. I know this store for many years.(moons)🤗🎸

Misha Narinsky: Great local place with a very friendly staff. I went there weekday afternoon for a travel case for my guitar - there was no line/wait time at all and two people helped me on the floor. Highly recommend

Dennys Sandrino: The owner was very helpful and knowledgeable about my instrument.

Otto Rumpenstein: Great wide variety of musical instruments and customer service. You can even bring your guitar for it to be repaired and tuned if you're not into DIY.
Response: Hello. Thank you very much for your review. We're happy to know your satisfaction to the service(s).

ELY MARTINEZ: Very well supplied and very good music teachers
Response: Hello Ely. It is our pleasure to see your satisfaction. We congratulate you for it as well. From your folks at Estilo Musical

Mareling Rios: I don't usually leave reviews but I had to speak about my experience at this place. I know we are all human and have our bad days but when you own a business, you should know how important customer service is. I just left this place not long ago. I walked in around 4:45pm and I was instantly greeted by a young man, whom I have no complaints about. He was very kind and answered my questions to the best of his ability. When he didn't know the answers he sought out who I assume to be the owner. An older man, short and stubby, wears glasses. Cuban accent, they both spoke Spanish. I don't think they knew English. I proceeded to tell them both that I was looking for quotes on musical equipment for my local church. I jotted down some prices they gave me as I went for things like mic stands, cables, guitar stands etc, but a few minutes in the older man got impatient and asked me if I was buying it all today. I repeated myself and said I was there for quotes and I'd be visiting several places to get the best deal. This is when his attitude completely shifted. I asked about what kinds of wireless microphones he had. He told me that I didn't know what I was saying and didn't know what I wanted. That he has many prices and varying kinds and that he won't waste his time showing me anything unless I'm buying it. He proceeded to tell me that if I wanted prices to go somewhere else and then come back to the store. I must say I am a very patient and understanding person and I tried to kindly and respectfully explain to him again that I had to get quotes first before I committed to buying anything. He did not quit barking at me and was not interested in anything else I had to say. I told him that it was alright and I as I left told him respectfully even, that I hope he didn't treat all his customers this way. I walked out at 4:58pm. I was not even there 15 minutes. I wish I could've had a positive experience as I read everyone else's reviews. Also I must say the place is a bit disorganized. Instruments and equipment are all piled onto each other and you're not able to see all the products they have for sale because there's no way around the store. This went on much longer than it should've but I wanted to be honest and not miss anything from this awful experience. I won't say 'don't go there' but I think you'd be better off going to Samash or Guitar Center.

Matt Hawk: They do have musical instruments. Only one person working spoke broken English. Went in for musician ear plugs and didn't have anything. They were nice enough to refer me to Walgreens or RadioShack

Aaron .A: Great place to see and buy instruments guitars etc. But, I wouldnt advise to go to a lesson or to pay for one.

Robert Irizarry: Being from Miami and constantly looking for Latin Music Books, Latin Musical Instruments, and overall a good Music Store in Calle Ochco. I have to say, El Estilo Musical in Miami, Fl located in the heart of Calle Ocho; is the best place for all your music & Latin music needs.

Carlos Avila: Nice music shop in the heart of Little Havana! Love it!!

Walt Grace Vintage: what do users think?


Michael Ash: One of the coolest automobile infused guitar stores I’ve been to. The staff were very friendly. Would have to visit again if a 550 Spyder stops by here! The coffee was good too.
Response: Thanks, Michael, but we hope to see you long before we have a 550 on the floor—not the easiest car to find! LOL.

Andreas “Aris” Aristidou: Wow what a place! Half a shop and half a museum. You can spend hours there just taking it all in. From the vintage cars, to awesome guitars, gifts and accessories, everything is unique and special. Definitely on the expensive side but well worth a visit anyhow!
Response: Thanks, for the review and kind words. Hope to see you again soon.

Barrie Byron: Walt Grace Vintage is a slice of serenity, tranquility, and quality in the frenetic Wynwood district. We absolutely adored everything about this cafe and museum! The guava cheese croissant was so beautiful we didn't want to eat it, but we are glad we did. The latte was authentic and delicious. Courteous professional help that went above and beyond.
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words, Barrie, and so happy to hear about your experience. Hope to see you again soon!

Stu M: A must if you’re in Miami! Dropped in for a coffee and loved the place, beautiful guitars, incredible vintage cars and super friendly staff. Coffee was pretty good too. Great experience!

Joe Camuto: Awesome! Very unique and unexpected experience. Definitely would recommend it to anyone interested in music memorabilia and classic/exotic cars!

George P: Just an absolute gem filled with a rotating collection of unique cars, art, and guitars that make it a great stop in Wynwood. Stop here for espresso too.

Len Oppenheimer: When your passion become's your business it creates vibe that is one of a kind. Vintage cars and guitars plus a great espresso bar.
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words, Len. Hope to see you again, soon.

Don Lechon1966: Beautiful guitars,cars,people and the art of it all. It takes a Beautiful mind to present such an assemblage in an sculpture of inventive inventory populating soothing but stimulating artful collages. Go have a refreshment at the coffee bar ,enjoy! Boss Bill whose creativity can be experienced throughout, a gracious host. Will definitely come back for the changes but most of all the owner and staffs warmth. GO THERE!

Brian G: What Grace Vintage facilitated the purchase of my first high end amplifier from Two-Rock. The staff was courteous and friendly. They provided a personalized experience designing my dream amplifier from scratch. The staff remained in contact during the build phase and called me as soon as it came in. I highly recommend Walt Grace Vintage if you want to take your own sonic journey.
Response: Thanks for the kind words, Brian—right back at you! It’s was truly a pleasure. Thanks again, and enjoy your new Two-Rock (we’re all kinda, sorta jealous)!!! 🤘🏼🤘🏼

Enrique Barron (HeinrichBar): I just went to the store and I LOVED IT! The attention of the staff, Patrick & Larry they were outstanding, friendly. Definitely I won’t buy any other guitar if is not in this place… Maybe a car too, who knows!! Hands up for the owners 🤘🏼🤘🏼⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Dj Iron Mic: **SUPPPORT LOCAL BUSINESS** great place, & decent prices on sound & lighting equipment & instruments…

Greg Johnson: Excellent attention to detail, experienced and very fair on the price of repairs.Highly recommend trying them out!🎸

Nicholas Elkin: Had banjo strings. Not many music store options in Miami but at least it's a good option.
Response: Tank

Wayne Terry: I love this place. Yeah it's a big chain shop- but this one still manages to keep a mom and pop vibe. With familiar faces like The Mayor, who always keeps treats handy for local pups who are welcome inside (and a lucky few are even photographed on the wall)...just one example of keeping a rad family vibe. The staff are ultra helpful and they get anything they might not have ordered ASAP. Love this place!!!

Reinier Perez: Nice seller a lot of equipment and If he does not have what you are looking for the owner can order for you and pick it up in a few of days good place to buy a lot musical items thank you .

R B: Friendly folks but not much of interesting or new devices, customer service is lacking a bit too. Also avoid their electronics repair as though a seperate entity works under their roof and is not very responsible... A simple fix for my instrument has take 1 month and yet no news...and its always when I call no updates or reassurance on anything. :/

Carol McKay: love our amazing teacher Hannah! She is very patient and positive with my son who has Epilepsy. She isn't afraid ( some people are) she is always telling him what a great job he is doing and he learns fast. Overall the music academy is a great source for anyone's interest in music. My son Joseph takes one on one lessons with Hannah! The payment plans are convenient and the staff are warm and welcoming! I'm a happy mom!

Jorge Chahwan: Great Shopping Experience and good prices! Personnel with Pro Audio knowledge as its best.

David Sibilly: Won't recommended this store bad business!!

Luis Garcia: good deal answered all my questions .. I recommend this place.Pro AudioBuen trato y servicio

Sweat Records: what do users think?


Francesco Enea: Great record store!!!Its staff is very friendly and willing to help you, they have a wide variety of new records and accessories. You will probably find what you were looking for in there 💯

Manuel Hernandez (Manny): After looking in 4 other record stores in Miami for a copy of the new Arcade Fire album in white vinyl, I could finally find it at Sweat Records. They were responsive via IG and provided me with an easy way to order online and pick up at a later time. When I stopped by to pick up the record, it was beautifully wrapped showing lots of attention to detail. I spent 20 minutes browsing through the store and ended up picking up a rare used Flaming Lips vinyl. I am definitely coming back again.

Josè Sifuentes: Looking for records, CDs or zines? Then this is the spot! Don't doubt them because of the area these people know music and will be glad to help you with any questions you got. I personally learned about the shop from Ale Campos and Gabriel duque who constantly shared the magical place in their instagram. And am I glad to have taken advantage of an early day off work to visit, see picture attached to see what I grabbed on my visit!

Cody Cox: An excellent record store. The staff was very welcoming and friendly from the moment we walked in. Great selection of music and much of which surprised me. To this day they are the only record store I’ve seen to have a designated Swamp Dogg section. They also have a great punch card system in place to encourage regulars. Will be back - likely far too frequently.

Mihaela Georgieva: Nice place with loads of new and used vinyls to browse, and a great service. The people working there recommended some great local artists - exactly what I was looking for.

Dimitry Petruk: Good records. Nice atmosphere, stylish place. Friendly and nice staff. You can listen all the records right there before purchasing.

Rosalyn Delgado: OG community record store. great selection and fair prices. The store hosts a variety of music and community events so i definitely recommend signing up for their mailing list!

Shmuel Friedman: This spot is great. The staff are super friendly and really helpful. Great vibes and a cool selection.

Lizbeth Farías Casanova: My favorite local record store. Great finds in the used section, always up to date in new arrivals and the staff is great! They also have a catalog on Discogs.

Ann Phelan: Such a great record store in Little Haiti. Organized is such a way to make browsing enjoyable! The sales associate was super helpful and friendly.

marquis nuby: The owner is awesome!! We jammed and he shared his music history and taught me a blues progression in A.He gave a great price on an awesome BassGuitar!! Thank-you!

Reuben Cainer: This place is a gem. Fantastic collection of vintage and newer gear. Independent stores like this keep alive a great tradition sourcing and reselling quality instruments. The owner, Marty has a successful and varied history in the music industry, he has some great stories to tell. He was also kind enough to come in outside of his regular business hours to let me try some basses. Seems to be one of the few ‘real’ music stores in Miami, highly recommended.

yamari ponce: Hi! Good morning, afternoon or evening, how are you? I want to ask, if you sell cellos 4/4 and how much? PLEASE!, Thanks :)

Liary: This place is DEFINITELY worth the hype. I got a gorgeous electrical bass guitar for a great price and Marty is super experienced in what he does. If you need an instrument this is the best place in South Beach!!!

NICOLE BENALCAZAR: Best place for grabbing a new instrument - with expert help and very reasonable pricing

Matt— VISPRING: § TRULY a MIAMI INSTITUTION... § This place fits South Beach absolutely perfect, and I just could never imagine going to a normal music school or visiting a traditional Guitar teacher after hanging out there. •OWNED AND OPERATED by a TRUE MUSICIAN—Marty, Who is easy to get along with and also can play and unbelievable amount of instruments. I seen him go from bass to pedal steel guitar, to Viola, too keyboards and then harmonica. HAHA • BEST HOURS for NIGHT OWLS! •Instruments Sold: …Guitars, drumsets, piano\keyboards, AMPLIFIERS, many percussion Instruments, + woodwinds & harmonicas. PLUS a full complement of accessories like picks, drumsticks , guitar strings, reeds & more. •QUALITY Varies FROM BEGINNERS’ level… TO Fine COLLECTORS’ Items… -TO- PROFESSIONAL MUSICIANS’ gear.

Heather Holland: Well worth the visit. We were on vacation from Alaska and just had to see what kind of music shop would be open in the middle of the night in South Beach. Some very interesting pieces, but the best part is chatting with Marty and the other folks who stop by. Marty is an amazing craftsman and musician, and I think my daughter will always remember the quick bass lesson he gave her with the perfectly set up old electric bass she fell in love with. Marty, you'll be happy to know we got the bass back to Alaska in one piece with no issues, and she's working away at learning to play it.

Neil Bienstock: Marty is awesome! Part storyteller, part musician, repair genius and a true kind sole with an unreal passion for music and the shop he’s built that clearly brings him great joy. Hope he’s stays in that spot for many years as he brings much needed authenticity to that area of Miami Beach. Amazing knowledge of music history, all instruments and the miami beach real-estate scene over the past 35+ years. And, oh ya, thanks for making my 25 yr old Ovation sound better than it ever has (triple check the hours... you read it right!). Cheers!

Michael Keroulle: Great little shop with a few incredible guitars but above all, the owner is an amazing person. Bought a nice acoustic, and will definitely be back at my next Miami trip

Miami String Haus: what do users think?


Daniel Bradley: Enthusiastic staff, great selection, however people need to know about the billing department. My advice to anyone dealing with the billing staff is DO NOT give them any other credit or debit card numbers to cover your monthly bills. They will use whatever card they can with or without your permission. Had an issue with my “real” credit card that I provided for billing purposes when I signed my contract and used my debit card to cover my monthly payment in the past. Fast forward to today, where I emailed their billing department stating that I had some financial issues and would be able to forward the whole payment to them within a week (my next payday). 45 minutes after sending the email, I look at my online banking and find out that they had already debited the funds from the debit card today presumably because they payment wouldn’t be fast enough. I understand that they are running a business, and that we are contracted for the monthly payment. However, most of the people renting instruments are parents renting them for their children, and parents occasionally fall on hard times. A business that thrives on parents business shouldn’t make them have to choose between a monthly payment to them and their light bill… oh wait, I didn’t have any choice. Just taking the funds from any account that they might have held onto the debit card number from is devastating to families in some circumstances. Currently I will be left with next to no money until my next payday. I am considering returning the instrument immediately because of this, if only to get them out of my life.
Response: Hello Daniel, We are sorry you are falling on tough financial times. After reviewing your contract, you signed up for automatic payments which automatically debit from your chosen method each month if payment is not received. If you had called us to put the autopay on hold, we could have stopped that payment. Your email arrived a few hours after the auto payment debited from your account but was only shown to you after your email. If you think a 1 star review is deserved, please return the instrument and we will give you a refund. If you would like to work this out amicably, please remove this false review and we can refund the money and put you on a temporary auto pay hold for your rental.

Ariel DLP: Thank you Miami String Haus for your exceptional professionalism and outstanding customer service. Last minute cancellations for major music events months in preparation are unfortunately common in the age of Covid, Miami String Haus were so understanding when my tour was suddenly cancelled. So grateful for all their help!

GMS LLC, TX: I and my friends were in town for the El Sistema USA Teaching Artist Training Institute for a week in June 2022. We all know how difficult it is to transport instruments and I wanted to send my violin home safely rather than risk another flight with it. Charlie, the owner, was kind not just to the people who rented instruments with him but also to me who came along asking for a box to ship my violin. I know that Charlie and Trina are both supporters of the El Sistema program - Miami Music Project - here in town. That is how I heard about Miami String Haus while living in Dallas, TX. I only wish I lived closer and could do more business with a company so focused on equipping the professional player, encouraging the skilled teenager and easing beginners into the beautiful instruments MSH has on site. Thank you!
Response: We are so happy we could meet all your needs! It is our passion to support the music community, whether locals or those visiting Miami. See you next time.

Jesus Sahagun: if you want a viola, violin or any other stringed instrument you have to visit them
Response: Bullseye. Thanks for your support!

Carline Toney: We Met Mr. and Mrs. Winters after my daughter Phaedra went online to explored about getting an Cello. I really enjoyed the quality, the service, the selection and definitely the atmosphere. My Daughter is so happy to finally found the best Cello ever. They were great with the price. If not, I wouldn't be able to afford it. They work along with us when it comes to appointment. We are so pleased on our purchased and their warranty is exceptional. Thank you so much to you both. Katrina works along with her husband that makes it %100 all the way.

Chris Lan: Unforgettable experience. From walking into the shop through the process of selecting the perfect instrument, it was nothing short of unforgettable. Miami String Haus gave us an entire history behind our new instrument, and made sure every detail was accounted for to guarantee our instrument sounded just as we wanted it to. Prices and quality of the instruments available are great too. Highly recommended.

J. G. Muller: Going to Miami String was one of the best shopping experiences I've ever had! Miami String provides all the charm and personal service of a mom and pop place while still offering very competitive prices and a great selection of instruments, sound equipment, and accessories. They were one of only 2 stores that had what I needed. Plus if you need an item and it's not in stock at Miami String, they will tell you the best place to find it. The whole team there is top notch. I called a couple times, and the voice on the other end was always friendly and helpful. Charlie who assisted me with selecting the equipment I purchased has a vibe that is part mad music scientist and part hip record company executive. He has a wealth of knowledge and is eager to share it. If you're not sure what you need, Charlie and Dale, the luthier, can help you figure it out. They took well over an hour with me educating me about the sound equipment; setting up and trying out amps, cables, and pedals for the best result; and offering solutions. I purchased a violin pickup, an amplifier, a microphone, and cables. I also had a minor repair made to my bridge while I was there; and I'm happy with the outcome. Make an appointment, and go see them!

Guerra-DLP Productions: We have had the pleasure of working with Charles and the Miami String Haus now for almost 4 years now and they are always helpful, knowledgable and always have a solution to almost any Double bass related problem. So lucky to have them here in the South Florida Area
Response: You’re a rock star! We are blessed to be able to work with you.

Sharon Angela: Awesome service!! I had 2 violins repaired and tuned by Luthier, Dale. He was very professional, knowledgeable, kind, and cordial. He took the time to explain the adjustments he had made and why. As a student violinist, I was very appreciative. If you want excellent workmanship and helpful service, Miami Strings is the place to go.
Response: Hi Sharon — We are so grateful to hear your feedback and glad you came to our shop for your violin repairs!

Gregory Falkenstein: I brought my instrument to Miami String Haus for an emergency repair. My nervousness at leaving my viola to new people went away the moment I walked in to find repair expert Dale, from the former Duffy's shop in the Grove, in the workshop. This guy knows what he is doing, and the sight of him put me at ease. Turns out that he is part of a great local business run in a friendly, straightforward, and professional manner. You can feel assured that you will be treated with respect, courtesy, and fairness, and that all work will be performed with the utmost skill and precision. Thanks again, guys! see you in 20201!

Security_ L0ft: Excellent guitar shop! I purchased a BFR Music Man Sabre and couldn’t be happier. Great price, shipped and packed very well. Miles answered all my questions quickly and professionally. Setup was spot on and the guitar is phenomenal. I would highly recommend you giving this place a call.

Jim Sloves: I purchased a fantastic Fender custom Shop strat directly from Miami Guitars. I am on the other side of the country. All my gear transaction these days are purchased over the Internet without visiting the store. It’s the little things that count even more. First, the guitar was packaged with utmost care and protection. Doubled box the hardshell case! Miles and the crew were particularly attentive shipping the strat for a precise delivery window (I was away from home for a few days and there were some massive storms) and answering emails. Any questions I had we’re promptly answered via email usually within 12 hours. Caution: Relic haters, stop here and don’t look at the photo. 😅

Thomas Keating: I was looking for a high quality core PRS guitar with a premium 10 Top. I chose the 35th Anniversary Custom 24 in Tiger Yellow. Could not be happier. Miami Guitars made the purchase seamless. They were patient and supportive. Great customer service. Would recommend that anyone looking for a great deal on gear, to check out Miami Guitars.

Jeff Fuchsgruber: Communication was a bit rough at first. However, after working out some kinks and lining up a specific model (EBMM JP15 Blood Orange) the process was smooth. Received the guitar in excellent condition and it sounds and plays amazingly. Couldn't be happier. Thanks!
Response: Thank you for your support Jeff, hope you like the JP15 Miami-Guitars Exclusive special run!

William Hites: I went to Miami guitars looking for a Suhr on a couple of occasions. I knew I wanted one, but hadn't yet found "the one". Miles and Aiden were both so helpful, friendly, and patient with me. I ended up finding my dream guitar. It was setup perfectly and plays amazing. I'll definitely go back. Thanks!

Matthew Brink: Aiden was amazing! Super knowledgeable about my guitar and helped me out with some adjustments while I waited. Very impressed. Will be back!

Eric Mayer: I owned a Santa Cruz guitar 20 years ago and was dumb enough to sell it. I wanted to get another one, and found a beautiful dreadnought at Miami Guitars. Miles was prompt and professional in the communication, and when the guitar arrived it took my breath away. Exactly as described, but twice as beautiful. This is a professional store with quality customer service.

Jim Freeman: I worked with Miles long distance to source a high end and somewhat hard to find instrument. Every part of the interaction and transaction exceeded expectations. Service was awesome, guitar impeccable with the best stock setup I’ve ever received. I’d work with them again in a heartbeat.

Matt H.: This place does not exist. I drove 30 minutes because I heard good things. The pictures on the website and Google are from an old location. I walked in and it's an abandoned room (see picture). There was one woman saying they no longer do repairs or sell guitars. I don't know what it used to be but now it's a scam or some kind of front. Stay away!
Response: Hi Matt, first of all, sorry for the inconvenience. we stated in our website repair webpage that we are closed to the public for repairs. Our sales are open to the public by appointments only, this is also stated on our website clearly. We are in the process of remodeling the new location, that's why you saw an "Abandoned" room. Again, we are sorry that we couldn't help you this time.

Tom S: I purchased a Musicman BFR StingRay Special and wanted to say thank you very much for your pricing, communication after sale, set up and shipping. Truly a five star transaction!
Response: Thank you for your support, Kevin!

Kevin Shoemaker: Had an issue with a shipped order… the manager Rory called me personally and went above and beyond to rectify it. Really appreciate the care and customer support. Will definitely come back to shop for gear. Thanks Rory!

305 PLP: The fact that there is a store like this in Miami is a miracle in itself, but the fact that its as awesome as it is, is icing on the cake. This is the only brick and mortar in Miami where you can buy all of those dope eurorack modules you keep looking up on youtube, as well as the ONLY music store in the city with a constant flow of incredible vintage synths and drum machines for sale at fair market prices. The fact that these dudes dont inflate their used and vintage stuff above the avg online price is bonkers. Even more bizarre is the fact that they wont low ball you on any vintage gear youre selling. Ive sold 2 pieces of gear to them and both experiences have been amazing. The first was an outright trade for another piece of gear they had at the store that was priced about 50 bucks less than i would have gotten for it online. The other was a straight sale and they gave me about 80% of what it was selling for on Reverb, which i thought was very fair. Fairness, again, an especially rare quality for a second hand store in Miami to have. I took the same synth to Guitar Center and they offered me less than half of its avg resale price ($450 to be exact). There is a reason why this place is so beloved by the synth nerds in this city. This is the only god damn online review or comment i've ever made on anything online, and its the least I could do for such a gem of store. I hope it stays open forever.

Danny Ae: Awesome. Super helpful and friendly. Excellent gear... Solid deep cuts and famously great items. I can't believe we have this in Miami.

Joel Anderson: John is our guy! Very knowledgeable and fun to talk to. The synth selection is great and it's great that it's in technique records. Vib

Paulette Dekker: Dude, what a cool shop! Got some vinyl and a cool t-shirt.
