What our customers say about WWR..

We have found that customers like to hear what other customers have to say, so here's a selection....

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you and the staff at WWR for the excellent service we received in our recent purchase of an Adler bassoon.  We were very impressed with the prompt way in which you were able to obtain a particular model for Jonathan to try, the efficiency and courtesy in dealing with our telephone queries and the excellent professional advice we received when we came to try the instrument.
Jonathan and his teacher are very pleased with the tone and quality of the instrument and confident of its suitability for his current level and future progress.
We will highly recommend WWR for levels of customer service and specialist professional knowledge. Nov 07

Dear Daniel and Workteam, THANKYOU again from the bottom of my heart for helping me out with by Cabart - to me she sounds even better then before (and it can't be because I'm practising!) Bless you all for such a smashing job and for fitting me into your busy schedule! I'm so glad we've regained contact - after all you were the "blueprint invention" of my C# extension all those years ago - think it safe to say I became an oboist at all because of that! … From Ruth

Son breaks daughter's clarinet reed Friday afternoon - wife calls "Reeds-Direct" Friday afternoon - box of new reeds arrives Saturday morning - mum happy reed arrived - daughter unhappy weekend practice back on - son very unhappy gets no ice-cream all weekend for breaking reed - dad very happy cos mom is happy - problem sorted. From David

Thank-you very much for sending this saxophone on approval. When I ordered it I genuinely did not expect to be returning it. However my son does not enjoy it and the saxophone is not for him. I thank you very much for your advice, your consideration and your excellent service...Aldwick.

 Most impressed, ordered book yesterday lunchtime and delivered this am! MUCH faster than our local music shop! Thanks. Jane

Just to let you know how impressed I have been with your fantastic service!! I phoned on Tuesday to talk a bit about ligatures for my alto sax. Thomas was most helpful and considerate- what an ambassador for your company simply coming to the phone. I called again later in the day, around 4.30pm to order. I think the order was taken by Mr. Bangham... He said he would try to dispatch the goods that evening , and they arrived in the next morning's post. Wonderful! Many thanks. Pat.

To ALL at WWR . Many thanks for the speed with which you all worked on my behalf to sort out my Sax.... Nick

Dear Daniel, "Hooray" - you've cracked it!! Karoll (?sp?) has now had three lessons successfully using your neck holder - we're all delighted. This is just a brief note to thank you for all your time and effort… We'll keep in touch and hopefully will eventually send more people your way...From Shirley.

Dear Thomas, Many thanks for your speedy supply and information. As ever it is a pleasure to deal with you… From Alison

Dear Mr Bangham, I would like to thank you on behalf of my son, for organising the Sax Day at Kesgrave. My sone is a quiet lad, who sometimes lacks a bit of confidence especially when within a group of people. Therefore, I was thrilled to see that he really enjoyed getting involved with the whole day's events and overcame any reservations he may have had before arriving. He has not stopped talking about it and I believe that he has realised that standing up in front of other like minded people of all ages performing a solo is actually very exciting rather than daunting. He told me on the way home that he would have liked to continue, he obviously got a taste of performing during Richard Inghams master class. Please could you pass on our gratitude to Mr Dryer-Beers, Mr Ingham and everyone involved in organising this event, it was inspiring to be present with all those talented people….From Martyn

Dear Sir or Madam, Yesterday (Friday) I left a message on the answering machine at your freephone number ordering some saxophone reeds and a couple of other small items - the time of my call was about 4pm (it might even have been later). This morning (Saturday) an envelope arrived with my order, complete and accurate. I am seriously impressed with your service, for which many thanks. I shall, of course, be recommending Reeds Direct to all and sundry - you do a first rate job. From Tom

Dear Daniel

Thanks for the safe delivery of the music this morning which I ordered only yesterday. I have 2 daughters taking AB Grades. If only I could have used your interactive site ordering method before, my life would
have been so much simpler. As a non musician, reading the Music teacher's writing and pronouncing unknown (to me) composers when ordering over the phone was always a problem. Well done with your web

Many thanks,



Wood, Wind and Reed aim to make buying and owning an instrument easy and enjoyable. We choose the best products available to save you time and money. All instruments are tested and adjusted before sale and our reputation for pre and post sales service is the envy of our trade.

With such an extensive catalogue we are not able to keep all goods in stock all the time. We do keep hundreds of ligatures, double reeds, cleaners, cases and other accessories in stock and we can therefore dispatch the majority of orders within 48 hours.

Our extensive selection of student and professional instruments are given a final inspection, adjustment and test before they are dispatched so please allow around 5 working days for dispatch.
