We’re often asked why we ask you to give us a call in advance of visiting us to try an instrument.
There are several reasons: the first is so we can check that we have what you want to try in stock. If we don’t we’ll contact the luthier to see whether he has one in stock that we can get for you.
Secondly, it gives us chance to check the instrument over. This is especially important if we’ve done a show recently.
And last, and probably most importantly, it gives us chance to buy the milk 😉 As none of us take milk if you plan a surprise visit you’ll have to join us in taking it black :O
