In the competitive marketplace of quality stringed instruments - Kirk Music was at first welcomed with open arms - as there had previously not been a dealer specializing in violins, violas, and bass viols. Prices are high on the "premium" instruments - and the Kirk product - some of which are handmade in the Kirk Co's workshop in Billings, Montana - lack the "quality" of other instruments available at a lower price. For example, the Von Aue full-sized cello we ended up buying to replace the 3/4 size student cello our son grew out of [and that has a list price of between $1200 - $1500] - cost just $3000 base price and is of such superior quality and sound to any of the premium cellos we'd examined at Kirk's. Problem is, the Von Aue can only be purchased at Robertson's Violins in Albuquerque, NM! Given that area professional symphony musicians avoid shopping at Kirk's and are willing to travel to Albuquerque to purchase instruments or have them repaired - is food for thought. Unfortunately, for now, the budding classical string play is advised to make the 5-hour trip to take a look at what Robertson's has to offer -- which is oh, so much better than what Kirk's offers

Barry has been working on my guitars for many years. I've tried others but now I won't let anyone else touch them. He's my go to guy when it comes to my musical instruments. He's far and away the best!
I started taking piano lessons there a few weeks ago. They're very nice, and Daygoro (my piano instructor) is patient and helpful. The staff is flexible and can order things if you like. I'm very happy and will keep taking lessons there as long as I'm in El Paso.
1) Two years ago I took my son's keyboard to Danny's Music Box for repair. It sat there for a month -- two personal visits and several phone calls and nothing was happening. So, I took it to Bertie's -- and they had it fixed and back to me in a week!2) I had a bass that I sent to the Guitar Spa …
How this place stays in business is a mystery to me. It's always devoid of customers. They're still trying to sell a bass amp that's been there for at least six or seven years --- they want too much for it! They have zero guitar or bass selection . . . only a few overpriced pianos. They do rent …
