"A big thank you to Greg at the Parkersburg store for quickly repairing my son's trombone and then taking the time not only to clean it but to also show me how to properly clean it. I was very impressed that he took time out of his day and also encouraged me to bring my son in, so he could show him one-on-one. Thank you!"
- Tracie Rather
