We want to hear from you! Customer Reviews:
"I brought my Epiphone Masterbilt Acoustic Electric Guitar to your company for some electronic pre-amp work and have a SUPERTUNE. I must say RON COOK is the best guitar specialist repair tech in Maryland. After one year with Epiphone guitar company that could not find the probelm with the eSonic2 per-amp, Ron found and fixed the problem on my first visit to Bills Music House. Ron Cook's SUPERTUNE is the best guitar setup in the UNITED STATES. Ron Cook is second to none in guitar setup. I am so pleased with the work your company has provided. Thank you Ron Cook!" ~ Marty C.

Lee in Woodwinds/Brass Repair Rocks! Some of the best service I have gotten anywhere in a long time. My daughter has clarinet camp this week and her instrument broke. Lee was able to fix it in a matter of minutes. Not only that... but he was enthusiastic, warm and friendly. It was close to the end of his shift, but I know he would have stayed late if need be. Highly knowledgeable... you will have no reservations leaving your instrument in his capable hands. Lee has had years of study learning how to fix what he does, and has worked many jobs at Bill Music when he was young. Talented Guy! ~ Veronica W.
It was so nice to get out of rehearsal at 5:30 and get your voicemail. Thank you for the phone call, this email and just for being one of the cooler people on this planet. Seriously, on behalf of GCS and myself, I would like to say thank you for all you've done. The students are EXCITED to get their instruments back! Again, thanks Lee for all you've done. ~ Brant C.
