This is simply the place to go in Orange County. These folks know it all, and will show you the way without pressuring you. They have all the advantages of the big box store (you know who we're talking about, right?) without the hype or

I've been coming to Jim's music since I was 13. They were originally located in Irvine and now have moved to a larger store in Tustin. Everyone is extremely knowledgeable and the prices are very fair. This is the place to go instead of a large chain with vulture like salesmen like Guitar Center

New store is very nice. A tad more electric guitars and tube amps for shredders and metal players would be nice.

Pros: Big store right off the freeway

Cons: Poor guitar - amp selection

This place has the largest variety of music instruments and music books. They have a huge variety of classical, contemporary, and FUN music books so you're not only playing classical pieces on your instrument. Definitely worth stopping by!

Jim's Music is an awesome local music shop. They are smaller than the big chains, but that makes you more of a family member than a customer. They have a lot of great up scale guitars and amps. The staff is friendly and very knowledgeable. Overall this is a great place to go if you are a guitar player. They also have drums and band instruments, but I'm a guitar player, so I'll speak to what I know.

This place is relatively small compared to chain stores like Guitar Center, but they have many different instruments from classical instruments to rock instruments as well as some scores. They also offer private music lessons there.

Jim's Music Center offers a large selection of instruments for band students. They have a very helpful staff with reasonable prices. Give them a try! :-)

Limited selection of hard rock and metal guitars. Been in several times and seen the same guitars. Did not see any used guitars. Would be nice if their website listed their inventory instead of links to the manufacturer sites we can go to. Save me the walk through the store to see the white Gibson Goddess SG again.

Pros: amps

Cons: guitars, service, lacks user friendly store and web

Even though your first impression is a small hole in the wall, Jims is actually a spacious center filled with a staff that is highly knowledgeable. Every person working there has some area of expertise and will always go as far as they can to help you. Ive found that every time i walk in, there are familiar faces that can either be a helpfull sales person or another customer like me that has become a regular. Unlike many chain stores that will only drop prices if you let them know you want to drop large sums of money Jims always tries to get me the best deal they can afford, nor do they shy away from special ordering somthing for me if it was not in stock. Ive had very few bad experiences with the sales staff and have never had a reoccouring problem since ive never seen that particular sales person work there again. Jims keeps a great standard of service and has never let me down yet.

Shop wherever you want to determine what you want but give these guys a call before you buy. Their product knowledge and customer service is second to none. They can get just about anything. Special orders are no problem. They won't try and talk you out of what you want just because they don't have it in stock. These guys are pros - I can always count on going there and seeing a familiar face. I don't have to constantly deal with new untrained salespeople like I've found and the bigger chain stores.

Jim's music is sort of like a used car dealer. Omar in the wind section sold my son a saxophone that his music teacher immediately identified as junk. Unfortunately, we could not convince them to either get us a refund or apply the cost to a new instrument. They did agree to sell us a decent horn (at not a bad price), and try to sell the old one on consignment. A year later , it was still unsold. A friend popped in for me and described to Omar the exact horn that was accepted on consignment. Omar said that they did not have anything like that! I can only conclude that they were hoping I'd forget the issue and abandon the horn to them.

If you really know your stuff, it is probably OK.. But do not look for honest guidance here -- go to some other music store such as Sam Ash. It will be worth the drive.
