We are often asked why we ask people to give us advance notice when visiting The Old Dairy to try an instrument.
Well, there are a number of reasons… Firstly, it allows us to check the instruments in advance of your visit and make sure the cases (which are kept in our stockroom) are to hand should you decide to purchase. Secondly, you might be interested in an instrument not currently in stock. A few weeks notice gives us chance to contact the luthier to see whether he has any in stock that he can send us for you to try. Finally, and probably most importantly 😉, it means we can ensure there’s fresh milk and biscuits in for the tea and coffee 👍
On Monday June 17th work is being done on our Broadband. This means that we will be unable to take phone calls or answer e-mails during this time.
If your enquiry is urgent please message us on here as we will be able to answer messages via our mobiles whilst work is ongoing.
If you’re popping into the shop for supplies please be prepared to pay using cash as our pdq machine relies on a network connection. The webshop will be open as normal. If you would prefer to use this to make your purchase but collect from the shop please put ‘click and collect’ in the special instructions and bring your WorldPay reference with you. We will then refund the p&p to your account.
Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.
