Hi,

Thanks for quick reply. Looks good. If you can charge to existing card 2608, that will work. 

The arrangement to try before buy over the course of a year has worked very well.  

Many thanks

N.C Twickenham (ex demo Jupiter JFL-511 flute)


Hello Nigel,
Many thanks for your email.  I'm so pleased that the flute is going well.  I have attached a statement showing the balance to buy of £165 which includes the flute stand.   Shall I charge this to your card ending 2608?  Please confirm and I will email you proof of ownership.
 
​Kind regards

Thanks so much for the service.

Best regards

Dear Richard,

I am just letting you know that the saxophone I ordered arrived at precisely the stated time.

Having unpacked everything I got the immediate impression the instrument had never been used.

I shall take good care of it whilst it is in my possession. I am looking forward to making full use of it.

Thank you for your prompt service and attention/ terms and financial facilities.

Afternoon Richard

Thanks for the email below which I will print out as proof of purchase.
It was a pleasure dealing with you and I appreciate greatly the couple of tips you passed on.

I will certainly come to you first should I go for any instrument upgrades and will also recommend you to any friend looking for a woodwind.

Kind rgds -

Thanks, Richard. 


Grace will be going for her Grade 2 exam next month. She's enjoying playing and practising more each day.

26.04.17

Many thanks Helen for the paperwork. My home insurance is pretty good but I will check the details.

 Thoroughly enjoyed the experience of visiting you all on Monday – a potentially difficult decision was made much easier by the time and attention I received. 

 I turned right out of your road and ended up lost somewhere near Hathersage, so turned round and this time the satnav took me up the Snake Pass to Glossop, which was very pleasant in the sunshine and the roof down!  I expect to come back in a few months to try some mouthpieces and will definitely study a map beforehand.

 Already enjoying the sax of course.

 All the best,

S.E. Frodsham (new Trevor James Signature Custom RAW alto saxophone)

p.s. thanks again for the coffee!



25.04.17

Hello Richard, Helen, Hazel 

The alto was delivered about an hour ago during the 1 hour slot within which DPD had told me they would deliver.  So that was good.  

I’ve given the alto a run through and haven’t come across any problems yet.  I do like it. Thanks for the complimentary care kit and extra Juno reed – much appreciated.

This was an incredibly easy transaction and I thank you for that.

I look forward to meeting you all when I visit you for a lesson later this year. 

Best wishes

I can tell you that Philip is a very happy young man with his new alto - thanks very much. 

Thanks for being flexible about the tenor. We'll probably look to buy an upgraded one from you next year. 

Thanks for all your help and I'm sure there will be a lot of happy listening as well as happy listening over here!

26.01.17

Hi Richard,

Could you put this on the comments section for me.

I am so pleased with my sax, Richard helped from start to finish, My playing has stepped up a grade now that I have a decent instrument. Richard helped from start to finish and this couldn't have been smoother. It is clear that I bought this of a musician who actually cares about what other musicians are getting. I will recommend this to anyone , who like me have had difficulty in finding a decent and fair hire scheme,

Once again thanks again, the sax is fantastic.

Hello Richard and all the staff at U.K. Sax Hire.


I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your friendly and professional advice to help me choose a saxophone and for all your e mail  support. I chose an Espirit Alto Saxophone and it arrived safely and well packed in time for Christmas. It was my present this year and I was so excited when I opened it on Christmas Day. The saxophone was everything you said it would be and the sax stand, neck strap and book were excellent added extras. The saxophone itself plays beautifully. I have played clarinet before but this is my first saxophone. I am more than impressed with the instrument and I am really looking forward to learning to play. I have recently recommended you to a friend who is looking to hire a sax for her son and if I need any further instruments you will be the first person I come to. I would highly recommend UK Sax Hire as the staff are wonderful and my new sax is amazing!
Thanks you all and Happy New Year!

Hi Richard and Team
I just wanted to say thank you to you all.  I really enjoyed meeting you all yesterday and the experience of hiring my Saxophone was so positive, you made me feel I can really play this instrument and with practice I'm sure I'll gain my confidence.  I have wanted to play the Saxophone for so long and just the way things have worked out this year it has happened for me.
Thank you again for all of your help.  Look forward to seeing you again.

Thank you for arranging the delivery - was very fast and efficient,

24.11.16

Hello Helen

The Yani 911 really is a beautiful instrument and after a very pleasant weekend with it I am in no doubt that I should purchase outright straightaway. Please will you calculate how much this will be? 

The conductor of the orchestra in Inverness is very pleased with the idea of having a soprano, and has suggested that I could dep for the oboe - I can easily manage the necessary transposition using Finale Notepad, a lot easier than trying to transpose at sight.

And Richard ~ the time you spent sorting out the subtle differences between the Soprano and my Alto was invaluable.  Thank you very much indeed.

Hi Helen

Thanks for the documents.

Ellie really enjoyed the lesson with Richard on Sunday and is now successfully playing the first 3 bars of 3 blind mice, and a bit of row row your boat :-)

Thankfully we have a detached house as she was playing again between 21:00 and 22:00 last night !!

Dear Richard,

Thank you for the delivery of the Saxophone which arrived yesterday.  I was very pleased with the instrument and my son was over the moon last night when I gave it to him.

He has his first lesson today, so I look forward to see his progression in the coming months.

Once again many thanks, great service and communication.

My Best Regards

Hi Richard,

Just to let you know that the sax was delivered about 30 mins ago. It looks fine to me but I will get Amelia to check it out when home from school. 

Thanks for making this so easy and I will highly recommend to the music teacher at Amelia's prep school!!

Regards,

N.M.  Bicester (new Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)



06.11.16

Hi Richard

I hope you are well, thanks for your email, I was only thinking the other day that I would need to contact you in the coming month. Am not sure if you would remember but the Sax was a gift last Xmas to my partner and although he has yet to fully master the art he is very attached to it, so we would like to purchase. The instalments would be helpful given the time of year and so if possible can I take the 6 month payment option. Am happy for you to continue to charge the card mentioned below.

Thanks for your help and the great service, let me know if you need any further info.
Kind Regards
R.S. (Esprit alto saxophone).



04.11.16

Hi Helen
Thanks for the documents
Yes, really enjoyed my visit and have been putting in some time since.
I have booked with a trial lesson local tutor and looking forward to making progress !
I was very impressed with your service and will certainly recommend ukSaxHire to any friends who might be inspired by my experience to take up the horn ( assuming I don't put them off in the process)!

Hi Richard, The oboe has arrived and  I can play it!!! Absolutely delighted!! Took me a couple of minutes to get used to the reed but I managed to play it quite easily then. I think, if I can really get the hang of it, I'll end up buying this beautiful oboe. Thank you so much for making this possible.

From: Richard Wansbrough
Date: 15/10/2016 13:03 
Hi Ali, please do open it and try it.  There is no obligation to buy or hire it.  You can return it at any time or hire it for £1pm if he likes it (and return the BG).  The first 12 monthly rental payments would count towards any sax you buy from me so you can either buy the ex rental Alpha, swap to a new one or any other instrument (clarinet, flute, etc).  I would recommend that you hire the Alpha for the year in case Robert has a growth spurt and can then manage the alto.  I hope that this helps!  Richard

On 15 October 2016 at 11:00
Hi. I noticed thanks. I interpreted that would be a purchase (£29), not hire if I opened the packet of the neoprene harness? Was waiting to see how he got on with a few sessions on webbed one first. Can you please remind me. If we went for alphasax purchase would we be having hire discount off new one or is it possible to buy second hand (eg hire alphasax)?
Best wishes
Ali

Date: 15/10/2016 09:41 

Thanks Ali, that is great news!  I also sent a padded Neotech harness for Robert to try.  Even though it is the smallest size they make, it may still be a little big but you can fold over the webbing to shorten it and secure with a safety pin etc.  Happy playing! Richard

On 15 October 2016 at 09:21
Hi richard.  Thanks for the fast delivery of the alphasax. Have to say I do think it really is quite a bit lighter than the espirit for robert. Will get the form back to you monday! :)
Best wishes
Ali

Thanks Ali, that is great...

Date: 3 October 2016 at 21:27, 
Hi Richard.  I'll stick with the normal alto (esprit? ) thanks. He is a tall 7 and will be 8 in a few months. I'd heard of the alphas but he seems to be getting on ok with his teacher's alto (?brand).
Thanks
Ali


Date: 3 October 2016 at 14:19

Thanks Ali, unless Robert is a tall 7 he may find the Alphasax more comfortable (if he is not the height of an 8 / 9 year old).  It sounds the same as an alto but has some of the side keys removed which helps with small hands.....I have an ex rental one for £10pm, an ex demo for £15pm and a new one for £19pm.  I hope that this helps!  Richard 07484 885 619

On 3 October 2016 at 11:45,
Hi Richard. I attach signed sax agreement. I would also like to hire padded harness as Robert is only seven.
Thanks

Hello Richard

The sax arrived as planned. Really pleased, excellent instrument. 

P.A. London (ex demo Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone)



06.10.16

Wow! That sax is something else.

Is it ok to give you a call to ask about cleaning/looking after it at some point?

 I did not intend to purchase the sax after hiring it for a while, but it is not going to be easy to give this back and go back to my B&M if I fix it up.

 S.B. London (new Yamaha YTS-280 tenor saxophone)

 


06.10.16

Hi Richard,

 

Further to our telephone conversation today, please can you kindly send the new Yamaha sax to our home address for this Friday. 


We will continue to hire the Alpha sax on a monthly basis as you kindly suggested. 


Many thanks for all your help and for your continued flexibility by providing us with so many options, it is much appreciated.


Kind regards,

A.P. Pinner (new Yamaha YAS-280 alto sax and ex demo Trevor James Alphasax).



05.10.16

Thanks for you message, and yes, we would like to buy the saxophone now. I was talking to Delyth's teacher a couple of weeks ago, I asked her what we should be looking to buy now that the rental was coming to an end, and she said 'Buy the one she's renting'! Delyth's loving the saxophone, she's now working towards Grade 3 and playing in the County Foundation orchestra, I cannot thank you enough for giving us an affordable way to get her started and decide whether the investment was the right one.

If you could confirm the online banking details I will get my husband to transfer the balance to you in the next day or so.

Thanks again,

J.G. (new Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone).


29.09.16

Evening Richard,

Thank you for your prompt and efficient service. The saxophone is beautiful and arrived as promised on Tuesday. Samuel had his first saxophone lesson on Wednesday and thoroughly enjoyed it. He was very keen to show us all he had learnt. I was wondering if it would be possible to return the book and have an additional mouthpiece/ligature/cap instead as our third accessory as I'd like to have a go too. Please advise how I should proceed.

Kind regards,

E.B. Hinckley (Ex demo Esprit alto saxophone)


Thanks Emma, I'm so pleased that Samuel is enjoying the sax.  Please return it by recorded delivery in a hard envelope so that it does not get crumpled with your name inside (I receive a lot of anonymous accessories!)   I will then post the mouthpiece / ligature and cap to you for the cost of the postage.  

Happy playing!  Richard 07484 885 619



28.09.16

Hi Richard, 

Many thanks for the e-mail about John’s YAS-280.

It is absolutely no problem about referring my students to you – you are quite simply the best at doing what you do in the UK – that’s why I always recommend you, I have to believe in other people as it’s my reputation as well as yours that I have to make sure is 100% solid – I hope the feeling is mutual!

 All the best and keep up the great work!

The Ref 54L tenor arrived safely today. I haven't played sax for quite a few months, and then it was a Yani 901 baritone.

But this Selmer is something else. If sings right out of the case. I am delighted! What a superb horn! I am beginning to understand what all the fuss is about with Selmer Ref saxes.


Thanks again for a truly wonderful service.

Just to let you know sax was delivered successfully and I love it. You have thought of everything to include which is perfect for a beginner like myself.

I can play some Christmas songs already so really enjoying trying to get to grips with it. Sore lips though, not sure if this is normal for newbies or if my embouchure is wrong.

Anyway, thanks again,

Hello Richard,

Thanks for the seamless service and the quick delivery. I assembled the sax, played couple of notes, left behind the fear of failing to get any sound out of it, and there's only upside from here!

Hopefully, i won't be selling it, but if that will be the case, I will reach out to you first (will be recommending you to others in the meantime).

Finally, I remember that in one of your emails you mentioned some friendly advices by emails. If it's a ready to send email and includes some Do's and Don'ts, i'd appreciate if you can share.

Hi Richard, I have seen the attached spread sheet and would like to take the 9 month repayment option. I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for such an excellent service.The options you provide make playing these instruments within reach of everyone without having to fully commit, which can be such an expensive gamble, knowing how kids interests can be somewhat fickle at times. According to feedback from his tutor Taran seems to be naturally talented and progressing very well. 

Thanks again D. L. Cornwall  (New Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)

Clarinet arrived safely.  I have managed to put it together and I am making noises that sound (mostly) like music. The cats are not impressed but will have to get used to it!
 
Thank you for the excellent service and advice. I would happily recommend you to anyone looking to buy an instrument. 
 
Best regards.

20.01.14

Hi Richard,
First let me thank you for a first class service. I was very impressed with the service I received. The soprano arrived whilst we were having breakfast but I'm afraid I could not wait for it to end so opened the parcel immediately.  I have started playing the instrument to warm it up a little after its cold journey and now that it is warmer it plays very nicely. As you said on the phone the key action is very light and it is in tune across the range unlike my old soprano. 
Thanks again

14.01.14 

Hi Richard

Great to meet you yesterday. 

 I’ve had a little practice today and I must say listening to the CD as per the lessons in the book has given me confidence on the sound that I am making which is a good start.  As I want to do this properly and not try and run before I can walk, I’d like to have some tutoring from you if possible.

I also announced on Facebook that I have a new hobby and one of my old work colleagues asked where I got the sax from etc. so I have passed on your details to her, I hope you don’t mind.

 Many thanks once again and I look forward to hearing from you.

 Best wishes

S. H. Reading (ex rental Esprit alto saxophone)

Dear Richard
 
Thank you so much for your time and attention yesterday. I really enjoyed my lesson and if we didn't live 3.5 hours away I would really like to have more!!
 
I have had a really good play today and absolutely love my sax. Went through all the technique exercises and practiced for a while on the 3 reed (which was fun!!)
 
I have my first band practice this week with Barnsley concert band so will see how that goes and now just really want to find a teacher as the suggestions you made yesterday have really helped already.

 
kind regards and once again many thanks

Hi 
Just to say it arrived safely on Thursday  and Evie is absolutely delighted.  She's had her first lesson and is picking it up no problem.  The teacher commented on the nice sound of the instrument too, so thank you. The harness is perfect too. I expect we will be buying an instrument within a year...

Now I just have to get used to the sound of a ship coming through my front door - or so it sounds at times when she blows the C...

Kind regards

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the great customer service!  You made it very easy to arrange the rental and the delivery and went the extra mile to make sure the delivery time would suit me.

You are proof that it is much better to rent from an individual than from a big company.

Thanks again,

Hi Richard

I just wanted to say thank you for sending the e flat Klari, I have checked it over & had a good old blow and it's a fabulous little instrument. My pupil is extremely happy!

I'll be sure to contact you again in the future as & when I need something.

Thank you!

Thank you very much. I have enjoyed doing business with you and will no doubt be looking again at some point in the future to hire (or maybe purchase, if a win the lottery!) a sax. I will recommend you to colleagues and students.

Hi Richard,
 
Many thanks for those details, but I certainly hope that I don't have to re-sell it back to you as I'm so enjoying it.
 
Thank you so much for the lesson this morning. I enjoyed it a lot and am glad you feel that I've made some progress since last we met.
 
Until the next time.
 
Many thanks,

 We really enjoyed meeting you this morning and learnt so much in an hour.  Alex has been playing his saxophone already since he’s been home and is really pleased with it.  

 Thank you for taking the time to spend with us and answer many questions and point us in the right direction.

Thank you again.

Dear Richard
 
Thank you for the e:mail and receipt confirmation. Most of all though, thank you for a very enjoyable visit and all the advice.
The tenor is already sounding marvellous.
Thanks again and very best wishes.

Dear Richard,

I would like to go ahead and purchase the Yamaha 3 month old alto. I can really see the difference compared with my current instrument. I would also like to keep the Yamaha 4cm mouthpiece as this seems to suit me best.

Thank you for your prompt and efficient service. The opportunity to hire and assess (the sax and 3 ebonite mouthpieces) in this way has proved invaluable.

Yours sincerely,

S. M. Yorkshire (3 month old Yamaha YAS-280 alto saxophone)

Hi Richard
 
I just wanted to thank you for yesterday and the time you spent finding Amy the right saxophone and showing her how to use it.  She absolutely loves her pink sax and has barely put it down since we got home with it!  She’s so keen I’ve already arranged for her to start lessons with a local teacher from next week.  We’re hoping this is the beginning of a very enjoyable and rewarding new hobby for her.
All the best.
S.B.  Beaconsfield (ex rental Alphasax).

Dear Richard, 
Thank you for your time today. It was indeed a pleasure meeting with you. I hope that my daughter does enjoy the saxophone, and (for our sake as well) learns to play well really soon! 
I will certainly keep you informed if she wishes to upgrade her saxophone, and I have noted the options on hand for either upgrading or re selling the instrument to you. 
Thank you once again. 
Kind regards,

Hi Richard
Thank you for excellent service!
Sarah is loving the sax and is very keen.
Just wanted to mention sarahs friend Josie who we now know also got a sax from you! Josie speaks very highly of you and the instructions she got when you were finding the right instrument for her. In these days i believe it is important to pass on compliments as far too often businesses only hear the complaints!
It was lovely to hear the two girls so exited and they are both very grateful they got such beautiful instruments from you.
Thank you for all your help!
Kind regards

Many thanks,

"As an adult beginner the cost of buying a saxophone outright is prohibitive for a hobby that needs to fit around work and the other demands on your time. However, Richard's hire plan has allowed me to build a passion for the saxophone in an affordable way. I've never had a problem with the instrument and the service has been fantastic. I'm now looking at my second instrument and wouldn't think of going anywhere else."

Kind regards

Hi Richard,

 

Apologies for the delay, I’ve been incredibly busy with work.

 

I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thankyou! Your service was excellent; arrived very quickly and you were in touch within an hour of my initial email.

 Many thanks

Hi Richard,

 Just a quick thank you for all your help today, Jake (9 yrs old) was absolutely overjoyed with his lesson and his sax.
 He has already had the neighbours in for a recital and been to my brothers for a showing off session there, I can't recommend you highly enough. (But I will give it a good go) Jake was captivated from the moment he entered your home, and I was amazed at how much you taught him in such a short space of time. I will be putting your cards up far and wide.
 Thanks again,
 B. F.

Hi Richard,
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say a huge thank you for your time on Monday. I was like an excited child before and after the lesson, and it's made the world of difference - no sore lip, a bottom C and some great stuff to work on. The Pink Panther is in the bag too, brilliant. You have a wonderfully relaxed yet encouraging way of teaching.  
Take care

Hi Richard,
Thanks for sending me the balance and payment options for my sax.  I'm delighted with the sax (YAS-62) and have been getting good feedback from music teacher and band members re improvements in my sound that I've decided to keep it.
If I could pay the balance over 3 monthly payments that would be great.
Thanks again,

Hi Richard,
My daughter has loved learning to play the bass clarinet and it has opened up many opportunities for her to play in bands etc. She would be heartbroken if we returned it now so I would like to pay off the balance over 12 months.

Many thanks

Hi Richard,
It is marvellous. Thanks for making initial steps so easy but fun. 
I'm enjoying playing the Saxophone. I'm also considering to buy the stand. It will encourage more to play. How much will it cost and when can I come and pick it up?
Thanks a lot.
 
Best Regards

 Dear Richard, the tenor arrived spot on time and in perfect condition. It's beautiful!!  With the Java no. 2 reed I found it easy to play right across the range and found the action to be excellent. I expected everything to be much more difficult after the alto.  Many thanks for your excellent service.

Best wishes,

Many thanks, Richard - all looks good to me.
