What our customers say...

My guitar student and her mom went to A&R today and were treated with great respect, got the best guitar for her needs and left with a beautiful LAG acoustic guitar and huge smiles on their faces. Thank you!!!
Rick is extremely helpful and very knowledgable regarding everything he sells. The music equipment is proudly displayed and he backs everything he sells. I live two hours away and refuse to purchase anything from another shop. Rick genuinely cares about your individual needs and has great advice! See you soon for strings!
Great service,products and knowledge. Check out A & R music for all your needs. Richard carries everything you want, its your one stop shop. Support local, shop local!!

I always enjoy a stop and a chat with Richard. Great, personable, knowledgeable and service second to none.

i came in before Christmas, picking up a birthday gift, ( microphone ) richard was so helpful and pleasant , i will definitely be back in to the store! i would highly recommend this music store ! it has so much to offer, especially since its local! keep up the great work!!!!!
During these unusual times of COVID-19, A&R came though and was able to bring in and deliver a ukulele I was hoping to give my Granddaughter for her birthday. I had hoped to bring one back from Texas when I returned from our winter retreat...but this virus changed all that. Now, not being able to see my children and grandchildren face to face, this was the next best thing. Thank you Richard for helping to bring a big smile to my granddaugher's face.
Brought in my husbands guitar with a broken string. When I returned 30 mins later, the strings were changed, tuned and ready to go. All for a very reasonable price! Friendly customer service with a smile! Definitely will be back!
Richard did a great job setting up my Warlock. Definitely will be taking more of my guitars to him in the near future.
helpfull staff and great service
Thanks for always having my favourite brands!

Richard, your continued passion for what you do makes us more knowledgeable in our musical journey. Cheers.
Always appreciate your personal, customer service!
Thanks for all the help! I'm very pleased with my new electric guitar and gear.
Richard is great to work with. I have no trouble driving 40 minutes to do business at A&R. Good materials, friendly and knowledgeable, competent service. Goes out of his way to help.
It is a very nice store where you can get everything you need if you are into music
Thanks Richard for your service and expertise to us beginners.
Great customer service and knows a lot about different instruments
Friendly, knowledgeable owner, who will go out of his way for you. Having a local music store where I can get what I need, is just great.
I was in after Christmas to get a guitar. Rick was very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. He had a great selection. Thanks for the great service...highly recommend A&R music!!!!
Richard is a quiet humble dedicated musician who shares his knowledge and abilities in guiding us to make the right decision for our musical passions. He would far sooner lose the sale rather than push his customers into the wrong choice of an instrument! I truly appreciate and trust his integrity and musical passion!!! Thank you Richard.
Very knowledgeable about the oldies and current music. Great resource. Has time to talk with you.
What can I say... Richard goes out of his way to make sure that your experience there is the best...!! I have spent the summer collecting a few odds and ends to rebuild my drum kit. A few pieces were hard to find, but Richard always tries his hardest and he always pulls through... A&R Music... They make your dreams come true...!!
I’ve been going to A&R Music for over ten years now. I still look forward to going every time. The curated selection of instruments and accessories with the vast knowledge that Richard has always leaves me excited to play music. You will not find a greater attention to detail and better experience than going to A&R.
Was just in to have my guitar repaired in very short notice before a gig, I was well taken care of and was made a priority to have my guitar fixed and ready to play in two days. Very happy with the service and will make this my number one guitar shop and repair shop moving forward.
The owner is very great, and tries to give his customers the best prices.
Will work with you to make your music experience your own.
Richard is amazing! My daughter goes to him once a week for guitar lessons. He is so knowledgeable in all things music.

Just started playing and brought my guitar into Richard to have it set up. Richard was happy to help and had my guitar back to me very quickly.
The store has a great feel and Richard is welcoming to beginners, happy to give a little advice and tips. People of all skill levels are in and out… chatting and talking music.
Great selection of top brands.
Stop in and see for yourself!

Honest, informative service.
Very personable. Thank you.
Richard is a wealth of musical knowledge and great to speak with. Highly recommend visiting him for anything you need.
This was the first time I was in A&R music and I had a pleasant experience. The owner was very helpful but not to the point where I felt like I was dealing with a pushy salesman. They have a great variety of music equipment and a nice clean, well organized atmosphere. I will definitely be back!
Great place friendly and lots of knowledge in that small old time shop
Small-town feel with a great selection. Richard (owner) is absolutely fantastic, knowledgeable, and reliable. If you need a piece of equipment, he either has it, has something similar/better, or he can get it. He does all of the work himself. He is your music man.
Great experience, awesome customer service and good prices! Will return for another good deal
What great service! It was fast, and pricing was excellent. Very knowledgeable and friendly too, I would definitely go back!
If your focus is playing music, this is the shop you want. Friendly, expert knowledge and technical support from a real musician. Great selection of a wide range of instruments priced for beginners to professionals. This is my go-to place.
Bought my first guitar here. Good shop with a good selection and knowledgeable staff.
Great selection with friendly family business owners. Had everything musically i needed in one stop.
Great local business. Recently had technician work done by Richard on an fairly expensive guitar. He is very knowledgeable and did a great job. Will be calling Richard again for future work and gear.
Richard is always a delight to deal with. Very knowledgeable and friendly, and also my go to for my drumming supply needs.
Great service in a gem of a music store.
So nice to be back in the store again. As usual, his clientele will find Rick approachable and informative. I can't wait for another excuse to return there again.
Bought 2 ukes and they are all tuned up and ready to go. Great Service!
Nice store and the owner was very knowledgeable. I look forward to doing business here.
Richard has superb knowledge of gear & tone, and he can point you in the right direction.
Have bought lots of great gear here! Richard is a gem.
There isn't a time I've come out of A&R Music without learning several useful tidbits of musical information. Great shopping experience, sweet products
The gentleman there was a wealth of knowledge! Patiently explaining picks, sheet music, and spending time making sure I understood but not pushy at all. Would definitely recommend this music store.
Lovely experience every time. Have bought pedals and gear and had multiple repairs and guitar setups done. The owner Richard is a great asset to the community.
A&R Music is my first choice for buying guitars or accessories. I can't say enough good things about Richard's service and advice. The positive atmosphere of the store inspires you to keep playing music!!!
Nice little shop with a little bit of everything. Guitar string prices can't be beat!!
Authentic small town, family owned and operated music store with a good selection of musical instruments and supplies! It's a great spot to get personalized service where you can take lessons from the guy that sells you your first guitar, and makes sure it's properly setup and tuned. They will also help connect you with a local teacher, and support the local musical talent in many ways.
Very professional, best music place to get your instruments and anything you need...
Excellent, knowledgeable service. Conveniently located.
Always has what I need ! Great music store
Had exactly what i was looking for and at very reasonable price so i bought 2! Drumsticks for my daughter & some for me! Also I was THAT customer running in at 5-10 mins before closing as we were headed out for dinner. The owner was extremely pleasant! Definitely shopping there again!
