the employees did not know anything about the products they sell and they don't listen to what you ask over the phone or in the store. you end up like me, buying a an undesireable piece of equipment that you are stuck with and can't use.

Pros: I went there three times and never was satisfied with the way I was treated or the knowledge of the staff.

Cons: Very very poor service.

I've been here a couple of times to buy oboe reeds - the staff is always really helpful but they don't always have what I need - therefore, I'd strongly recomment calling before stopping in; they're always happy to order things but their selection focuses more on breadth than depth (though I imagine for popular instruments like guitar they have everything you could possibly need). Staff is very knowledgable and pleasant. Note that the store is now on Arch between 10th & 11th (used to be nearer 8th st, hence the name). And I second the earlier reviewer, parking & traffic are hellish down there, particularly on weekends - walk there if you can.

PROS: Helpful staff, able to get anything (though may take a few days)
CONS: Traffic/parking a challenge

i wanted to buy a saxophone and i went to this place. i wasnt sure which one i wanted and the people there were able to help me pick the right one. i was able to get a good deal on it and they also had deals for service and maintenance in the future.it was a good purchase from a good store.

This is a very popular music store for Musicians in the PhiIadelphia are. I am in a performing group (a capella & percussion) and we come to 8th Street Music for some of our instruments. The only thing is please do not leave your car in the tow-away zone even for a second, because I"VE BEEN TOWED!!! Aside from the towing, the place is always busy, the staff is really nice and the prices are also very good.

PROS: Great Musical Instruments, nice prices
CONS: Hard to find parking
