We bought a Buffet clarinet with clear statement - "We will buy it back from you. This will go up in value!" We just contacted the store, and were told that no, this was NEVER a policy. We found the price on Ebay is 1/3 of the original sales price for the same instrument. TWICE we phoned and NO ONE returned our calls. Our recommendation: DO NOT BUY HERE - customer service is terrible and they were dishonest.

They were very helpful, and their prices are very reasonable. When I had a minor problem with my instrument they took care of it quickly and without any hassle to me. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Ever since following the recommendations of prominent music teachers Charlotte Fukumoto and Hiroko Primrose many years ago, Music Center of Hawaii has been my music store. I really trust Robin Leong's knowledge and I really appreciate his caring--which extended to my students as well. Two of my violinist/children have played on violins from Music Center--starting with the 1/16 size all the way to their current full size. They love and remember each one. The quality of the violins is very high for the price--always a good value. These violins have been to many competitions, college auditions, and currently being used in college (at the Curtis Institute where they will give you a very nice loaner if your teacher feels your instrument isn't up to par.) Although I'm now on the mainland, I come back to have my violins and bows worked on by Robin. I trust Robin and few others. I speak for the string instruments but I see a lot of band teachers and students there too.

Its a super cool place and if you ever get involved in Orchestra you'll go here a lot. Like everyone knows Robin who basically owns this store. He makes all the instruments and can fix basically any problem. He's not an extreme people person but he is awesome at what he does. They have a nice sellection of sheet music but to be honest its way overpriced to buy sheet music. I'd say go buy an instrument there and then buy your sheet music from Amazon it will be cheaper. Also, all the employees that work there are students in Orchestra and basically have been around intruments since they could talk, so they are quite knowledgeable.
