Went to buy a violin and the people at Sam Ash were so patient and accomodating. Not giving 5 stars because I don't think I got expert help, but rather was left to rummage myself. I appreciate low pressure sales, but this might be too low.

I mean everything! You need, they have it. I went there many times looking for some mouth piece for my cousin in Brazil. They are very attentive, great service.

Large store, great selection, Eric was very patient with us and very passionate and knowledgable. Thanks for your help. They even held the items for us untill we shopped elsewhere and got back to collect them. Their prices are lower than B&H nextdoor too.

I went there to look around and got out with an all American Telecaster:-) great service, I felt really taken care of and the salesman let me try whatever I wanted. I would recommend going there just to look at all the great guitars! Don't forget floor 2 with all the acoustic ones as well.

I wanted to try a couple of guitars - a Taylor baritone and a Gibson L1. The staff helped me and even set me up on an amp for the Taylor. Very helpful, authoritative and friendly. I recommend Sam Ash to all Musos visiting NY.
